The package LuaTeXtra brings a lot of new macros and lua functions for Plain and LaTeX users to use LuaTeX.

This package is fully documented and contains a small introduction in a separate document. You must have this package in order to benefit from luainputenc or luaotfload.

## luatextra – Additional macros for Plain TeX and LaTeX in LuaTeX

The package provides a coherent extended programming environment for use with Lua. It loads packages fontspec, luatexbase and lualibs, and provides additional user-level features and goodies.

The package is under development, and its specification may be expected to change.
