Robert Alessi sub­mit­ted an up­date to the arablu­a­tex pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 1.13 2018-08-27 Li­cense type: gpl3+ cc-by-sa-4 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: An ArabTeX-like in­ter­face for LuaLaTeX An­nounce­ment text:
arablu­a­tex v1.13: - Ex­port­ing Uni­code Ara­bic to an ex­ter­nal file: arablu­a­tex is now able to pro­duce a du­pli­cate of the orig­i­nal .tex source file in which all arab­tex or buck­wal­ter strings will have been re­placed with Uni­code equiv­a­lents, ei­ther in Ara­bic script or in any ac­cepted stan­dard of translit­er­a­tion. See the doc­u­men­ta­tion on pp. 57-59 for more de­tails. As a re­sult of this new fea­ture, it is now pos­si­ble to fur­ther pro­cess Uni­code con­verted files with doc­u­ment con­vert­ers such as pan­doc. - New op­tional ar­gu­ment to \arb­mark, ei­ther 'rl' or 'lr', to over­ride the con­tex­tual anal­y­sis. - New 'color' op­tion to 'arab­verse' en­vi­ron­ment. - Use pre­com­posed uni­code ǧ/Ǧ in­stead of 'g/G + caron above' - A quick fix to a tiny bug (or rather a miss­ing fea­ture) in ei­ther 'ad­just­box' or 'lu­a­color' has been added.

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.
