comment LuaLaTeX: Load order fontspec, microtype (breaks hyphenation in bibliography)
@MaxNoe you need to get the texlive 2015-pretest for that: tug.org/texlive/pretest.html . it is however, as the name implies, a prerelease so things may not fully fully working as they should. use at your own risk (i.e., if you are on a tight deadline for something important... don't:-))

comment pgfplots Producing Incorrect Plot
you are using x and \x in the same equation which confuses it. change all instances of \x with something like \myvar and it works

comment How to write symbol in pic using latex
it looks like something specific to a particular font and without the original source, might be hard to trace back. if you have a pdf of the document that you could link to, we may be able to identify the font.

comment BibLaTeX preserve case of acronyms in title
I notice that one of the tags is biber but are you actually biber or are you still using bibtex. Using biber should respect the capitalisation of your fields.

comment Centering in tabularx and X columns
@ankhi probably because it is spelt \raggedright! However, a solution to this question (and this really should be a separate question rather than a comment to a vaguely related one), is given in this answer which uses the same package as suggested by herbert below

comment \pounds produces £, but Adobe Reader needs to search for $
This is not so much a bug as a caveat inherited due to historical reasons. There is a rather good explanation on wikibook about this (en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Fonts#Font_encoding). Basically, originally, LaTeX output was mostly postscript and the original encoding (OT1) was created so the output looked correct. The pdf format only came out later and with it new requirements. the encguide.pdf in your distro should also give you a more in depth idea of the concept of font encoding.

comment \pounds produces £, but Adobe Reader needs to search for $
@IanThompson I deleted my answer and pointed out to the duplicate since the problem and the answer are pretty much the same. the font is different, but the underlying problem is identical.

comment Is the filename of an image preserved in the final PDF?
@Christian I was not really implying that you would keep comments in the metadata but rather that the software you use to create the image may indeed put the filename or other information in there without you knowing

comment Is the filename of an image preserved in the final PDF?
in addition to that, when using pdftex or luatex, raster files such as .jpg org .png do not seem to be included with there filenames however I have only tried with files without metadata, I haven't tried with files with exif or other type of metadata.

comment Inconsolata missing after MiKTeX update
@krlmlr you should not have to resort to this when loading the package as an up to date version will offer both zi4.sty and inconsolata.sty. This was done back mid 2013 after a few complaints I think. As I reported in my answer, the package maintainer says that the old and new package have incompatibilities but I do not have a list of them. there are definitely new options in the new package but I don't know if options from the old one have different meaning in the new one.

comment Problem with \hfill and hyphenation
alternatively to @egreg's link, you can try to reduce the occurrences of hyphenation by using the microtype package. In your mwe it works.

comment LaTeX class for europass cv (2013 template)
I have been looking at that myself and started work on a new europecv package with the new template but real work got in the way. I have made the new icons into a font and was looking at either reworking the current package or using moderncv as a staring point. The problem with the current europecv package is the lack of straight forward support for things like xelatex/lualatex/biblatex... Other things I would like to correct is fact that the current package does not use the standard sectioning method. So yeah work in progress from my part and maybe someone else will beat me to it

comment Is there a disadvantage to using natbib=true with biblatex?
as far as I know, the natbib option with biblatex only provides the commands from natbib, the actual processing is done by biblatex and is not influenced by the option.

comment Serious problems with tabularx table layout
your code doesn't compile for several reasons however you are not saying it doesn't so I am not entirely sure what your problem actually is. for information, with the code provided: you are trying to use tabularx but are loading the tabu package; you are using toprule/(c)midrule/bottomrule without loading the booktabs package.
