 \section{Concerning this release \ldots (Lua\LaTeX{} engine)}
-In \TeX{}~Live 2020 the Lua\LaTeX{} format will use the new LuaHB\TeX{}
-engine, which is Lua\TeX{} with an embedded HarfBuzz library.
+The new LuaHB\TeX{} engine is Lua\TeX{} with an embedded HarfBuzz library.
 HarfBuzz can be used by setting a suitable renderer in the font
 declaration. A basic interface for that is provided by \pkg{fontspec}.
 This additional font renderer will greatly improve the shaping of
 various scripts when using Lua\LaTeX{}, many of which are currently handled correctly only by
 \XeTeX{}, which always uses HarfBuzz. 
 To simplify testing of the new engine, binaries have
 already been added to MiK\TeX{} and \TeX{}~Live 2019 and both have already now changed
 the Lua\LaTeX-dev format to use it.
+Going forward, Lua\LaTeX\ (and Lua\LaTeX-dev) will both use the LuaHB\TeX{}
+engine.  When the switch to the the LuaHB\TeX{} engine for Lua\LaTeX{}
+happens depends on the distribution (for \TeX{}~Live this will be with \TeX{}~Live 2020).
