I have just uploaded the archives for a new luatex release, 0.70.0.

This release will be the one on TeXLive 2011 (barring show-stopping
bugs). Compared to 0.66, there is not a lot of news, just a few


* fixed: various changes needed for libpng 1.5.2.

* fixed: node.fields() for nodes without subtype.

* fixed: non-argument use of os.execute().

* fixed: tex.[s|t|]print() with invalid catcode table arguments.

* fixed: recorder filename location with --output-directory.

* fixed: display alignment in TRT mode.

* luatex now uses the standard synctex files from Jérome Laurens.

The archives can be downloaded from supelec as usual:


You could also check out the sources via anonymous svn:

   svn co http://foundry.supelec.fr/svn/luatex/tags/beta-0.70.0
