New luatex release, 0.79.2 .


* WARNING: the structure of the format file is changed.
  After  the  Web2C \TeX's magic constant: "W2TX"  there is now
  a FORMAT_ID, a 32bit field that cannot be between 0 and 256 (included)
  so that there are no conflicts with the preexisting  structure
  of the format.
  The value can be seen with --debug-format and currently is
  907 (the sum of the values of the bytes of the ASCII string "don knuth").

* There is a new set of lua functions for StructElement and Attribute,
  convenient (even if not indispensable) for tagged pdf.

* several bugfixes and improvements.

The archives can be downloaded from supelec as usual:


You could also check out the sources via anonymous svn:

  svn co --username anonsvn --password anonsvn              \

Bugs and feature requests can be added to the issue tracker at


Have fun,
Hans, Taco, Luigi
