luatex – The LuaTeX engine
LuaTeX is a greatly extended version of pdfTeX using Lua as an embedded scripting language. The LuaTeX project’s main objective is to provide an open and configurable variant of TeX while at the same time offering substantive backward compatibility.
LuaTeX uses Unicode (as UTF-8) as its default input encoding, and is able to use modern (OpenType and TrueType) fonts (for both text and mathematics).
