Ulrike Fischer submitted an update to the luaotfload package. Version number: 3.16 2020-12-31 License type: gpl2 Summary description: OpenType ‘loader’ for Plain TeX and LaTeX Announcement text:
2020-12-30 luaotfload v3.16 * The fontloader has been synced with the context code from 2020-12-30 * The entry point is called luaotfload.lua instead of luaotfload-main.lua (but the old name is still provided for compatibility). * pre/post_shaping_filter callbacks has been added. * The number of lua-files and submodules shown in the log-file has been reduced. But it is extended again by setting the environment variable LUAOTFLOAD_TRACE_SUBMODULES=1. * The HarfBuzz based shaper will in some situations drop hyphenation points. This happens less frequently now since the new version uses first/second discretionaries (the mechanism described in the LuaTeX manual, section 5.6 for the of-f-ice example) to support a limited amount of nesting. * When the node shaper is used, experimental support for OpenType variable fonts has been added. To use them, set the font feature axis to a comma separated list of axis names and values. (E.g. axis={weight=600}) The supported axis names and value range depend on the font. * The font features upper and lower can be used to map the text of a font to upper or lowercase before displaying it. Currently this implements the untailored Unicode case mapping algorithm, but it is planned to add tailoring later. * A number of small bugfixes.
