Robert Alessi sub­mit­ted an up­date to the arablu­a­tex pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 1.12 2018-06-24 Li­cense type: gpl3+ cc-by-sa-4 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: An ArabTeX-like in­ter­face for LuaLaTeX An­nounce­ment text:
arablu­a­tex v1.12: This re­lease in­cludes many long-awaited fea­tures. Ac­tu­ally, arablu­a­tex is get­ting close to v2.0: - \ab­jad now ac­cepts com­mands and coun­ters as ar­gu­ments, so that al­most any­thing can be ab­jad-num­bered: pages, lists, &c. - In­tro­duc­tion of LPeg pat­terns, mak­ing it pos­si­ble to ac­cept al­most any LaTeX com­mand in Ara­bic en­vi­ron­ments. Reg­u­lar foot­notes and LR/LR­foot­notes have been ex­ten­sively tested, along with those of pack­age's such as many­foot. - Much more tol­er­ant \MkAr­bBreak and new \MkAr­bBreak* which di­rects arablu­a­tex to close the cur­rent Ara­bic en­vi­ron­ment be­fore any 'de­clared' com­mand, then re­sume it just af­ter (to be used with great cau­tion though). - Color sup­port! arablu­a­tex is now able to ren­der in color ei­ther words, parts of words (syl­labes) or even di­a­crit­ics with­out los­ing any of the re­fined lig­a­tures fea­tured by such beau­ti­ful Ara­bic fonts as Amiri. Sec­tion 7 of the doc­u­men­ta­tion goes into de­tails, al­though some of the tech­niques im­ple­mented re­quire a good ac­quain­tance with arab­tex cod­ing. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/lu­a­tex/la­tex/arablu­a­tex More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/arablu­a­tex We are sup­ported by the TeX User Groups.

arablu­a­tex – Arab for Lua

This pack­age pro­vides for Lua an Arab-like in­ter­face to gen­er­ate Ara­bic writ­ing from an ascii translit­er­a­tion. It is par­tic­u­larly well-suited for com­plex doc­u­ments such as tech­ni­cal doc­u­ments or crit­i­cal edi­tions where a lot of left-to-right com­mands in­ter­twine with Ara­bic writ­ing. arablu­a­tex is able to pro­cess any Arab in­put no­ta­tion. Its out­put can be set in the same modes of vo­cal­iza­tion as Arab, or in dif­fer­ent ro­man translit­er­a­tions. It fur­ther al­lows many ty­po­graph­i­cal re­fine­ments. It will even­tu­ally in­ter­act with some other pack­ages yet to come to pro­duce from .tex source files, in ad­di­tion to printed books, TEI xml com­pli­ant crit­i­cal edi­tions and/or lex­i­cons that can be searched, an­a­lyzed and cor­re­lated in var­i­ous ways.
