comment Can't generate ligatures with LuaLaTeX under TeXLive 2014 when using certain fonts
@Mico Sorry I can’t help you here. I’ve never even seen an AAT font. My best advice is to run standard tools on the file, e.g. otfinfo, ttx, or Fontforge itself.

@Mico If those fonts are in fact AAT fonts then Luaotfload can’t help you -- the FontForge libraries are part of LuaTeX so we’re limited to whatever falls out of the fontloader library. If the issue is reproducible with regular OpenType fonts then you hit a bug.

@Mico: Ah, OK. It was worth a try, though. Btw. thanks for being brave and running the pretest -- a Luaotfload update is coming soon.

Maybe a caching issue? Did you run luaotfload-tool --cache=erase after the update to tl 2014?

comment Querying a SharePoint list and typesetting the response with LuaLaTeX
If you could drop the hard requirement on Latex, Context should be able to do it out of the box: It too uses curl transparently and comes with a builtin XML parser. Sorry I can’t help you any further.

comment Querying a SharePoint list and typesetting the response with LuaLaTeX
Is it possible to send such a request directly from LuaLaTeX -- Yes, but you’re going to have to use an SSL wrapper like luasec to make the requests. Or call the curl binary using os.execute() like Context does. Then use the XML library of your choice to extract the data and process it like any normal document. I’ve never used Sharepoint so I can’t help you with the details.

comment Accessing MySQL or SQLite from Lua(La)TeX
a) That’s a destestable comparison by any conceivable moral standard; b) it’s a lot easier to port Context code to Latex than PHP, so it should be relevant as a starting point; c) you surrounded the “La” in “Lua(La)TeX” in parentheses and omitted the “Latex” tag, so my comment is 100% relevant to the question as you put it.

Context comes with an SQL interface out of the box.

Did you follow the advice here: tex.stackexchange.com/a/6067/14066 as others are suggesting?

comment ConTeXt: Bibliographies in current ConTeXt not working any more?
The bibliography subsystem is undergoing drastic changes at the moment. All of it is still considered experimental and might not work out of the box. Your best chance of getting help is to post a minimal example of what went wrong on the mailing list.

comment ConTeXt: Double or Triple Hyphen are Interpreted inside Verbatim Blocks
Add the parameter style=mono. Those “ligatures” (i.e. the tlig feature) need to be disabled when defining a font. It doesn’t appear to be possible to do that with the style key. Related post by Wolfgang: ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-context/2012/067283.html

comment how to generate a PDF with real UTF characters
Can you please run this code: \documentclass{scrartcl}\usepackage{fontspec}\begin{document}à\end{document} through Luatex and report back? I definitely get a single-character à (Unicode 0x00e0 / UTF-8 c3a0) when copying from the PDF.

comment How convert any.text to any.tex file or html file to tex
UTF-8 does not support the Russian alphabet or Arabic. -- well, in a manner of speaking that’s true: UTF-8 is an encoding to store (up to) 31 bit values. It does, however, happen to harmonize pretty nicely with the Unicode character set which does offer codepoints for -- among many others -- Cyrillic and Arabic scripts.

Glad to hear another Luaotfload success story! =)

comment LuaLateX (luaotfload & blacklist) do not work in Mac OS X Mavericks (Segmentation error)
those aren’t stupid questions. If your luaotfload-tool lacks the -b (or --show-blacklist) flag, this might indicate that there is something wrong with your installation. Could you please post the output of luoatfload-tool --version? If it doesn’t print the version string 2.4-3 then the upgrade wasn’t successful. (There should definitely be a -b flag and with --verbose=2 the font names should be printed.)
