Ha, I admit that I never tried that yet with lmtx. (The reason is that I 
then have to enter updating mode for all these new features. More 
something for end-of-the-year dark evenings with a stack of new cd's.)

Ok, that is not bad (I think on my already old machine one run took some 
18 seconds for luatex and of course in mkii with pdftex I could watch a 
movie while processing the file.)

The memory footprint also looks ok, especially given all these graphics. 
(in most cases lmtx has a smaller memory footprint.)

because in the meantime even a raspberry pi has become useable, I wonder 
how this new microsoft arm (running at 3G) laptop will perform.
