luatex – The Lua engine

Lua is an ex­tended ver­sion of pdf us­ing Lua as an em­bed­ded script­ing lan­guage. The Lua project’s main ob­jec­tive is to pro­vide an open and con­fig­urable vari­ant of while at the same time of­fer­ing down­ward com­pat­i­bil­ity.

Lua uses Uni­code (as UTF-8) as its de­fault in­put en­cod­ing, and is able to use mod­ern (OpenType) fonts (for both text and math­e­mat­ics).

It should be noted that Lua is still un­der de­vel­op­ment; its spec­i­fi­ca­tion has been de­clared sta­ble, but ab­so­lute sta­bil­ity may not in prac­tice be as­sumed.

Source code is avail­able from ctan:/sys­tems/texlive/Source/.
