[Dev-luatex] Luatex 0.74.0 announcement -issues

Hi all,

So far, it looks like we have three issue groups:

1) the compile errors for metapost with the missing png.h
2) various luatex compile problems for luasocket
3) broken context / texdoc (lualatex?)with texlive

Issue 1) appears to be a timestamp problem. It is probably possible to work around it by manually running 'make' in build/libs/zlib and build/libs/libpng, then 'make mpost' in build/texk/web2c. Somehow, the build rules are not quite right yet, and I probably need help from PEB to fix it properly.

Issue 2) probably comes down to the bleeding edge luasocket not being as portable as the released version, and should be relatively easy to fix.

Issue 3) means that some package updates should go to tlcontrib asap.

But for today, I just wish you all a blessed christmas / yule. Programming is for tomorrow.
