After commit 3495 (just done), the syntax has changed to

   local <node> nodelist, <table> info =
         tex.linebreak(<node> listhead, <table> parameters )

The 'info' contains four values that are all numbers:

   prevdepth   % depth of the last line in the broken paragraph
   prevgraf    % number of lines in the broken paragraph
   looseness   % the actual looseness value in the broken paragraph
   demerits    % the total demerits of the chosen solution

This is the best I can do at short notice

Best wishes,
