- XeTeX now uses the HarfBuzz shaper rather than the older ICU engine (which is no longer being developed): see my earlier post about this change
- LuaTeX is updated to Lua 5.2 (the latest Lua release)
Microtypenow supports protrusion in XeTeX and LuaTeX
I’ve been using the pretest version of TeX Live for a while, and am very happy that all seems to be working just fine. Of course, many people will want the DVD version, which will be a while, but for the downloaders you can grab it now.
