Hello all,

here is another example using font expansion that shows a difference between 1.0.7 and 1.0.9. Thank you Henri for the expansion examples.

\input luaotfload.sty
\font\tenrm="file:texgyreheros-regular.otf" at 10bp

\expandglyphsinfont\tenrm 80 60 20 autoexpand


\hsize 4.2cm
\parindent 0pt

At mid-century, Chicago was the “City of the Big Shoulders,”
the mightiest industrial city of them all. Thirty years later, in the ‘80s,
it was “Beirut by the Lake,” a troubled metropolis caught in economic decay
and torn by racial politics. Along the way it’s been the “Second City”
or the “City on the Make” or, as the first Mayor Daley had it,
“The City That Works,” a name that stuck even at a time when it
seemed the city stopped working.
