Thanks for the patch; I've already merged Philipp Gesang's equivalent patch
and will do a new release ASAP.

> Hi Philipp,
> I don’t know if you have followed the recent discussion on lualatex-dev

> The code in lualatex-math.lua relies on unpack being a global variable,
> which was the case in Lua 5.1, but is not the case anymore in Lua 5.2.
> As a result, I get the following error when importing amsmath and
> lualatex-math in the same document:
>     ! LuaTeX error
>     .../texmf-dist/tex/lualatex/lualatex-math/lualatex-math.lua:46:
>     attempt to call upvalue 'unpack' (a nil value)
>     stack traceback:

>             [string "\directlua "]:1: in main chunk.

> Other Lua files (lualibs-basic-merged.lua, lualibs-lua.lua, and

> incompatibility between Lua 5.1 and Lua 5.2:

>       table.unpack=_G.unpack
>     elseif not unpack then
>       _G.unpack=table.unpack
>     end
> By adding this code to lualatex-math.lua at an appropriate place, I was
> able to fix the issue with lualatex-math and amsmath.
> I’ve attached a patch. Could this patch or some other fix for the
> problem please be incorporated into lualatex-math? Thank you.
> Best wishes,
