comment Parallel text in ConTeXt
You can track the progress of the implementation on the git mirror. TL;DR: Not much appears to have happened. Anyways, you can always ask on the mailing list.

comment Vertical alignment of fonts of different size on same line in ConTeXt
If you intend to present these elements on a separate page, then a makeup would be the obvious approach.

comment Why is \setmainfont case sensitive with XelateX but not with LuaLaTeX?
@Paul Gessler I’m unable to post answers due to the captcha barrier which fails to load, leaving me without any obvious way to prove my humanity to the robots of stackexchange. I guess that’s what you get for relying on a web forum …

comment Colored mainfont with fontspec in a textblock yields to pdf error with LuaLaTex
@Jean-Sébastien Gosselin leave the question for reference, it’s valid just IMO not appropriate for this site. Regarding colorization perhaps start with the luacolor package. It’s specifically geared toward the Luatex engine so it should be one of the best options. I’d recommend searching around for other suggestions especially by the crowd that actually do use Latex ;)

comment Colored mainfont with fontspec in a textblock yields to pdf error with LuaLaTex
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it’s something in between a bug report and a feature request for Luaotfload concerning borderline supported functionality ;) The next release will come with a fix.

The issue will be addressed in the upcoming release of Luaotfload. Also, as @Ulrike-Fischer rightfully pointed out, the font-based colorization is little more than a hack for compatibility. Please consider using a proper colorization package instead.

comment Precompiled header with lualatex and unicode-math
@John Better ask these questions on the mailing list. Anyways, fonts are already cached as Lua bytecode so the bulk of the work of internalizing a font is already done at this point.

comment LuaLatex: How get ascii text from paragraph, change it and render again
It already assumes Luatex. As for Latex (a format) I guess it could be converted easily since it doesn’t rely on Context specific functionality, except trivally the hooks to install the callback.

comment Updating Your Own Font
@Ulrike Fischer: The man page is generated from a human readable source. The installed version of that file (matching your distribution’s Luaotfload package) can be read like so: less $(kpsewhich --format=source luaotfload-tool.rst) -- of course substituting the Windows equivalent of a pager for less and adapting the command substitution to the shell you use.

comment How to use ConTeXt in a unix pipeline?
@Richard Parsons: There’s this thread from 2012 that might help you. But considering that it usually takes multiple Luatex runs to generate the PDF, reading or writing from pipes doesn’t seem to have that many advantages. YMMV.

comment Updating Your Own Font
Not sure what purge does -- Recommended reading: man 1 luaotfload-tool; from that man page: “1. purge -> delete Lua files from cache; 2. erase -> delete Lua and Luc files from cache;”.

@Paul Gessler I’ll see to it later, no time right now. Thanks for reminding, though.

comment Why is \setmainfont case sensitive with XelateX but not with LuaLaTeX?
It is not engine-dependent, just how Luaotfload (and, incidentally, Context) treat things. The rationale is simple: Font names are a horrible mess that will haunt you and your descendants to the fifth generation if you attempt to uncover a system behind them. Since capitalization of identifiers can vary even within a font family, the only sane approach is to eliminate it completely. For info about Luaotfload read texdoc luaotfload and man 1 luaotfload-tool.

comment How to install Luajittex from binary
Also, installing a binary from Context won’t work if in combination with TeX Live since a matching texmf.cnf must be present at compile time. Why don’t you just use the Luajittex binary supplied with your TeX distribution?

comment How to install Luajittex from binary
(tagged luaotfload as its slowness is the main reason why I'm installing this!) -- Have you thought this through? Luaotfload execution time is largely determined by file IO. Font parsing is done by the engine anyways so performance is not going to increase by adding the JIT. Btw. unless you’re from the future I doubt that you already use “Linux 17.1”.

@Aditya It’s the same code, just not updated as frequently.

Luaotfload normalizes all names supplied by the font. Apart from lowercasing you can also leave out spaces if you wish.
