I had the same problem as the above people. After updating compilation was
impossible. Compilations stopped without warning and without error message.
But I identified the problem.

The update overwrites the "otfl-blacklist.cnf"-file located in my windows
folder c:\Programme\Miktex 2.9b\tex\luatex\luaotfload or where it is on your

I had blacklisted there Lingoes.ttf, a font of a free Dictionary, url:
http://www.lingoes.net. Located at my system here:
C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\Lingoes.ttf The software seem to be only available for
Windows, so it's a Windows only problem.

I have no clue why making a database, Luatex doesn't like Lingoes.ttf. After
blacklisting this font again in "otfl-blacklist.cnf", compilations works
again without any problem.

Regards to all, hope this helps.
