CTAN update: luaotfload

Date: February 26, 2022 8:10:55 AM CET
Marcel Krüger submitted an update to the luaotfload package. Version: 3.19 2022-02-24 License: gpl2 Summary description: OpenType ‘loader’ for Plain TeX and LaTeX Announcement text:
* When used with LuaTeX 1.15.0 or newer, variable fonts are supported when using the harf shaper too. * A new algorithm for selecting fonts based on font family names allows to more reliably load fonts based on their family name. * The compiled font database gets compressed to reduce disk space and improve performance on newer systems. * Text automatically gets normalized to Unicode's NFC before shaping. This improves rendering for text written in decomposed forms for many fonts. This can be turned off by passing the -normalize font feature. * The fontloader has been synced with the context code from 2022-02-24. This fixes some broken rendering of TrueType based variable fonts. * A number of small bugfixes.
