Hi all,

I have just released snapshot 20070119.

The largest new bit is the existence of a font.fonts array, that you
can use to query/adjust the internal defined tex fonts. See the manual
for more details.

Two small new lua extensions are added as well:

   * os.setenv() -- to change the environment
   * os.exec()   -- a non-returning os.execute()

And a bit of cleanup in the commandline processing.

Also patched is the problem with building in MacOSX that Arthur
reported, and some updates to the manual.

Best, Taco


Downloading and installation details:

If you go to


you will see that there are two new released files:

* luatex-snapshot-20070119.tar.bz2
     This is the source tree.

* luatex-snapshot-20070119-win32.zip
     A cross-compiled (mingw) windows binary. This is a web2c
     based binary, so it needs a texmf.cnf file (It will NOT
     work if you have only miktex installed).
