I know there are threads about the main JS files having bad UMD wrappers, but the cultures have a different issue.
Prior to v2016.1.112, there weren't any dependencies on kendo.core in the culture files. They've been added as below, and are looking for kendo.core in the current path.
Obviously, kendo.core isn't in the same path as the culture files, so RequireJS fails to load the file.
Could a fix for this please be rolled into the same release that is presumably coming very soon?
