 ????-??-?? luaotfload v3.16
+    *  The entry point is called luaotfload.lua instead of
+       luaotfload-main.lua (but the old name is still provided for 
+       compatibility).
+    *  pre/post_shaping_filter callbacks has been added.
+    *  The number of \abbrev{lua}-files and submodules shown in the log-file 
+       has been reduced. But it is extended again by setting the environment 
+    * The HarfBuzz based shaper will in some situations drop hyphenation
+       points. This happens less frequently now since the new version uses
+       first/second discretionaries (the mechanism described in the LuaTeX manual,
+       section 5.6 for the of-f-ice example) to support a limited amount of
+       nesting.
+    *  When the \texttt{node} shaper is used, experimental support for 
+       OpenType variable fonts has been added. To use them, set the font 
+       feature \texttt{axis} to a comma separated list of axis names and values. 
+       (E.g.  \texttt{axis={weight=600}}) The supported axis names and value 
+       range depend on the font.
+    *  The font features \texttt{upper} and \texttt{lower} can be used to map
+       the text of a font to upper or lowercase before displaying it. Currently
+       this implements the untailored Unicode case mapping algorithm, but it is
+       planned to add tailoring later.
+    *  A number of small bugfixes.

     * The font database is updated more reliably if fonts get deleted.
