Date: April 3, 2017 3:03:20 PM CEST
Robert Alessi sub­mit­ted an up­date to the arablu­a­tex pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 1.8.2 2017-04-02 Li­cense type: gpl3+ cc-by-sa-4.0 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: An ArabTeX-like in­ter­face for LuaLaTeX An­nounce­ment text:
arablu­a­tex v1.8.2: As of v1.8, arablu­a­tex sup­ports the so-called 'ara­bica' translit­er­a­tion stan­dard (/Jour­nal of Ara­bic and Is­lamic Stud­ies/, pub­lished by Brill). This re­lease fixes sev­eral bugs that have found their way into v1.8 by domino ef­fect: - tāʾ mar­būṭah was wrongly in­ter­preted be­fore ʾiʿrāb when \ar­bup was ac­tive in dmg mode; - -ī/-īyah were not parsed cor­rectly in 'dmg' mode. 'loc' and 'ara­bica' rules needed to be more ro­bust as well; And also into v1.8.1: - ʾalif maqṣūrah be­ing wrongly in­ter­preted from buck­wal­ter let­ter 'Y' to 'ara­bica' translit­er­a­tion; - \cap be­ing dis­carded in translit­er­ated se­quences when they were in­serted into non-translit­er­ated Ara­bic en­vi­ron­ments or com­mands. v1.9 will in­clude more lay­outs of Ara­bic po­etry, and as of v2.0 arablu­a­tex should be able to pro­duce TEI xml out­puts.

arablu­a­tex – An Arab-like in­ter­face 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.
