Robert Alessi sub­mit­ted an up­date to the arablu­a­tex pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 1.9.2 2017-10-24 Li­cense type: gpl3+ cc-by-sa-4 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: An ArabTeX-like in­ter­face for LuaLaTeX An­nounce­ment text:
arablu­a­tex v1.9.2: arablu­a­tex has been tested on hun­dreds of pages of fine, fully vo­cal­ized Ara­bic print. Among the many im­prove­ments and new fea­tures: - The rules for taḫfīf al-hamzah have been much im­proved. - New rules: hy­phen + ini­tial ʾalif with­out hamzah + hamzah and [wf]a- + hamzah have been added. - The strange spelling of miʾah has been added too. - Added sup­port for 'un­cer­tain' vow­els (see the doc­u­men­ta­tion on page 35). - As \aemph is now con­text sen­si­tive, a new com­mand \aemph* which al­ways puts a stroke over its ar­gu­ment has been added.
The pack­age's Cat­a­logue en­try can be viewed at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/arablu­a­tex The pack­age's files them­selves can be in­spected at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/lu­a­tex/la­tex/arablu­a­tex

arablu­a­tex – An Arab-like in­ter­face for Lua

This pack­age pro­vides for Lua an Arab-like in­ter­face to gen­er­ate Ara­bic writ­ing from an ascii translit­er­a­tion. It is par­tic­u­larly well-suited for com­plex doc­u­ments such as tech­ni­cal doc­u­ments or crit­i­cal edi­tions where a lot of left-to-right com­mands in­ter­twine with Ara­bic writ­ing. arablu­a­tex is able to pro­cess any Arab in­put no­ta­tion. Its out­put can be set in the same modes of vo­cal­iza­tion as Arab, or in dif­fer­ent ro­man translit­er­a­tions. It fur­ther al­lows many ty­po­graph­i­cal re­fine­ments. It will even­tu­ally in­ter­act with some other pack­ages yet to come to pro­duce from .tex source files, in ad­di­tion to printed books, TEI xml com­pli­ant crit­i­cal edi­tions and/or lex­i­cons that can be searched, an­a­lyzed and cor­re­lated in var­i­ous ways.
