Marcel Krüger submitted the lua-ul package. Version: 0.0.1 2020-03-12 License: lppl1.3c Summary description: Underlining for LuaLaTeX Announcement text:
There are many packages for LaTeX related to underlining, but most of them have restrictions which make them difficult to use or incompatible with advanced typesetting features. Lua-ul tries to provide underlining for LuaLaTeX which doesn't interfere with any other features, e.g. making sure that even at the start and end of underlined text kerning is respected, that text using complicated OpenType features can still be underlined correctly and that underlining does not interfere with line-breaking. This package is based on code written for a [TeX StackExchange question about underlining while preserving kerning](https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/446488/80496).
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/lua-ul The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/luatex/latex/lua-ul/

LuauL – Underlining for Lua

This package provides underlining, strikethough, and highlighting using features in Lua which avoid the restrictions imposed by other methods. In particular, kerning is not affected, the underlined text can use arbitrary commands, hyphenation works etc.

The package requires Lua version ≥ 1.12.0.
