I have just released snapshot 20070117. A small bit of news:
* the pdftex core is updated to 1.40.1, and web2c to 7.5.6
* the pdftex-specific documentation is removed
* lua lpeg library updated to 0.4
( http://www.inf.puc-rio.br/~roberto/lpeg.html )
* the C part of the lua md5 library is added to the binary
( http://www.inf.puc-rio.br/~roberto/md5/md5-5/md5.html )
* --luaonly now puts the script itself at arg, and
preceding commandline items in the negative indices
(instead of starting the count at zero).
This new approach is compatible with the standalone lua
As I said earlier, it is quite possible that there are still
a few bugs in the pdftex backport.
There is not a whole lot of progress in this version, but now that
this massive update is done, I can move on, so you can expect the
next snapshot to contain some more interesting stuff.
Downloading and installation details:
If you go to
you will see that there are two new released files:
This is the source tree.
A cross-compiled (mingw) windows binary. This is a web2c
based binary, so it needs a texmf.cnf file (It will NOT
work if you have only miktex installed).
