Ulrike Fischer submitted an update to the luaotfload package. Version number: 3.15 2020-09-02 License type: gpl2 Summary description: OpenType ‘loader’ for Plain TeX and LaTeX Announcement text:
2020-09-02 luaotfload v3.15 * The font database is updated more reliably if fonts get deleted. * In multiple error cases, error messages are shown instead of silently generating bad output. * Write glyph ids instead of internal identifiers to DVI files. This allows using OpenType fonts when working with dvilualatex. (This requires additional support from the DVI reader) * The set of font features which are enabled by default has been changed to be more similar to HarfBuzz. Especially Above-base mark Positioning (abvm), Below-base mark Positioning (blwm), Contextual Alternates (calt), Cursive Positioning (curs), Distances (dist), and Required Contextual Alternates (rclt) are now enabled by default for all scripts. * Added a mathfontdimen font feature which allows emulating fontdimen values from xetex or traditional TeX math fonts. * Initial support for variable fonts in node mode.
