comment Compilation error with LuaLaTeX (luaotfload- database.lua)
@JuriRobl The italics of Minion Pro seem to deviate from the rest of the font with respect to naming convention. The next bugfix release of Luaotfload will come with a fix. Btw. if you want to look up a font name the way fontspec does it, you are going to have to use Xetex modifier syntax. E.g. luaotfload-tool --find="name:Minion Pro/I". This should work regardless of the insufficient full name lookup.

comment Why does fake slant only seem to work after italics has been used?
@jonalv At the moment you have to compile from source, which is pretty simple, though: 1) get the trunk from SVN foundry.supelec.fr/scm/?group_id=10 , 2) copy the file texmf.cnf from your tex live install to the source/texk/kpathsea directory, 3) in the luatex-trunk directory execute build.sh --parallel, 4) copy the binary from build/texk/web2c/luatex to the texlive bin directory, 5) remake the formats mktexfmt luatex etc., 6) profit. If you don’t have a compiler I’m afraid you are going to have to wait until somebody builds 0.78 for tex live.

Update: this bug is fixed in the latest Luatex, version 0.78.

comment Same mathematical fonts with LuaTeX and ConTeXt
What do you expect? You are using two entirely different fonts: URW Garamond in what appears to be Type1 format, and EB Garamond as OpenType. I couldn’t test your Latex code since texlive lacks the garamondx package. But these fonts are unlikely to be metrically compatible, let alone visually identical. Also, EB Garamond is not a math font. Lastly, I suggest getting rid of the \enableregime directive since it is anachronistic in 2013.

comment How to use Liberation fonts in ConTeXt?
@s9gf4ult Could be just a typo: The font is spelled “liberation”, without the extra “t”. Btw you can use wildcards, e.g. --pattern=liber* will show Liberation and Libertine, if installed.

I like that! Shameless plug: you might be interested in my Enigma package for Luatex: ctan.org/pkg/enigma

@s9gf4ult Also try forcing the search path: OSFONTDIR=/path/to/font mtxrun --script fonts --reload

Try CMU for a matching Greek face. Doesn’t come in multiple optical sizes like LM, though.

It’s not exactly classes or id”s, but \definehighlight may be what you’re looking for.

comment LuaTeX callback for single line captions
You need to register the function both in the pre_linebreak_filter and the hpack_filter callback. This combination is quite common, for instance in Context, both are fused into the mvlbuilders node processor and not even available separately unless you resort to Dirty Tricks™.

@LaRiFaRi Yes, I’m being cheap not using the colorstack but injecting pdfliterals instead.

comment ConTeXt: How to control vertical and horizontal line thickness in tables?
Which of the table mechanisms do you use? Usually the line width is controlled via the same rulethickness key as in \framed.

comment Programming Conway's Game of Life in LaTeX
You might be interested in a silly Context module of mine which includes Game of Life code for Luatex. It even supports the common run-length encoded format so you can just feed it pattern files as you can download them from most websites. The code is quite old though and I’m not sure if even runs with a recent version.

@NobbZ you’re correct, of course. Regarding the numbering, I cannot reproduce your result with either of my examples, anyways have a look at conversion sets.

1) Use \place... instead of \complete... and supply your own heading. 2) \setuplist should get you started.
