Robert Alessi submitted an update to the arabluatex package. Version number: 1.12 2018-06-24 License type: gpl3+ cc-by-sa-4 Summary description: An ArabTeX-like interface for LuaLaTeX Announcement text:
arabluatex v1.12: This release includes many long-awaited features. Actually, arabluatex is getting close to v2.0: - \abjad now accepts commands and counters as arguments, so that almost anything can be abjad-numbered: pages, lists, &c. - Introduction of LPeg patterns, making it possible to accept almost any LaTeX command in Arabic environments. Regular footnotes and LR/LRfootnotes have been extensively tested, along with those of package's such as manyfoot. - Much more tolerant \MkArbBreak and new \MkArbBreak* which directs arabluatex to close the current Arabic environment before any 'declared' command, then resume it just after (to be used with great caution though). - Color support! arabluatex is now able to render in color either words, parts of words (syllabes) or even diacritics without losing any of the refined ligatures featured by such beautiful Arabic fonts as Amiri. Section 7 of the documentation goes into details, although some of the techniques implemented require a good acquaintance with arabtex coding. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/luatex/latex/arabluatex More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/arabluatex We are supported by the TeX User Groups.

arabluatex – Arab 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.
