[Dev-luatex] ligatures before dashes not working with LuaLaTeX 1.07.0

Hello,

when I switched from version 1.0.4 (TeX Live 2017/Arch Linux) to
1.07.0 (TeX Live 2018/Arch Linux) of LuaLaTeX, I noticed that before
dashes ligatures are not typeset anymore. Consider the following
example:


\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
	\Huge

	kickoff meeting

	kickoff-meeting

	rofl copter

	rofl-copter

	profi font

	profi-font
\end{document}


With LuaLaTeX 1.07.0, only in the non-dashed versions the last two
letters of the first words are typeset as ligatures. Before a dash,
the letters are typeset without a ligature. With pdfLaTeX 3.14159265-
2.6-1.40.19 (TeX Live 2018/Arch Linux), ligatures are also typeset
before dashes.

Is this behaviour intended?
