I can read it, but I doubt it that I need a newer ConTeXt. I just this
morning executed:
    first-setup.bat --context=current --extras=al

It can not be much newer I would think.

When compiling, the output starts with:
mtx-context | run 1: luatex
--backend="pdf" "./manualInterflon"

This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.70.1-2011080612 (rev 4277)

\write18 enabled.


ConTeXt ver: 2011.05.18 18:04 MKIV fmt: 2011.8.15 int: english/english
