comment lualatex: Need help with using different fonts
Neither of the Bravura fonts appears to provide glyphs for ASCII codepoints, that’s why you can’t see any of the basic Latin letters. Also see here for a way to suppress ligatures with Fontspec.

You could increase you chances of getting an answer a lot by asking on the mailing list.

comment Font found with XeLaTeX not found with LuaLaTeX on Linux
This question appears to be off-topic because it is a bug report. The issue was fixed and an update should reach CTAN in the next couple days.

comment How to differentiate glyphs by script (semi-)automatically?
Interesting! Why do you run texlua separately? If you are concerned about reproducibility, you could just store the seed in the document or the .aux file.

@cfr: Installing the Context distribution alongside Texlive is a common setup and usually works flawlessly.

comment Font found with XeLaTeX not found with LuaLaTeX on Linux
@darthbith I’ve tested your Latex code (on a Linux machine but that shouldn’t matter) and it works ok: If Cambria is found by luaotfload-tool --find, then Luaotfload will locate it correctly during a TeX run. Fwiw here’s a minimal test file for Plain: gist.github.com/phi-gamma/a112d0487cabb1d0077e -- if that one fails on your setup, then there might be some old luaotfload-names.lua file at a different location interfering. If you’re certain the problem persists, please open an item on the official tracker.

comment Font found with XeLaTeX not found with LuaLaTeX on Linux
@DavidCarlisle Even if it was legally possible to restrict the use of a font the way you describe, you don’t actually have to “install” (whatever that means) the font “on Linux”. Just mount a Windows partition and then put a symlink to the file in ~/.fonts and it should be usable directly.

comment Why does using small caps break endash ligatures in lualatex?
@Caleb Since there’s a major subsystem rewrite underway I keep the changes in my repo until I’m confident they don’t break everything when merged into master. I haven’t checked whether the fix applies to older versions.

Hans fixed it. The new code will be part of the next version of Luaotfload.

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.

comment Can't generate ligatures with LuaLaTeX under TeXLive 2014 when using certain fonts
@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.
