The microtype that came with TL2009 had all the LuaTeX stuff turned off by default. You actually had to go into the dtx file, change the value of a variable and then regenerate the sty file to activate the LuaTeX version of the commands. I guess that has changed in TL2010 pretest. Of course, other things in microtype may have changed too.
