Summary description: An alternative to babel for XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX

Announcement text:

New features:
   * New option "frenchpart" for French (#458).
   * New option "splithyphens" for Croatian (#454).

Bug fixes:

   * Use new LaTeX core hooks rather than filehook package. This fixes
     a recent breakage of filehook with other external packages (#453).
   * Remove very old code that pretends polyglossia is babel (#455).
   * Fix spelling of Albanian \contentsname (#456).
   * Fix part heading modification in French (#458).
   * Fix extra space in Hebrew (#459).
   * Register main polyglossia language earlier (#461).
   * Allow for hyphenations in words following opening guillemet in
     French with XeTeX (#462).
