next generation TeX engine

LuaTeX uses Lua scripting both as an extension to the TeX macro language and as an extension to the typesetting engine itself. A (growing) number of TeX internals are made available to the embedded lua interpreter.

LuaTeX uses code and interfaces from Aleph to improve the typesetting of non-latin alphabet languages, instead of the TeXXeT code present in the current releases of pdfTeX.

Unicode and OpenType font support are added progressively, and regular pdfTeX development will continue in this branch as well.

The multi-lingual extensions are coded and merged by Taco Hoekwater. Swift progress in that area is made possible by a joint grant from Colorado State University and TUG, under the 'Oriental TeX' project.

This package only contains the barebone binary. If you are searching for support file, formats etc install texlive-luatex.

current pdfTeX team.

README for luatex on Debian

Please note that luatex is much work in progress, and the documentation on
the web ( is outdated, especially the examples.
Some examples can be found in /usr/share/doc/luatex/examples.

expects utf8 input


luatex (0.15-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Starting with this version the luatex packages ships texdoclua, written
    by Frank K├╝ster. This program is a replacement for texdoc which operates
    much faster. Please see the man page for details.

    Furthermore the package installs a diversion of texdoc, so that as soon
    as you install luatex you will profit from the new texdoclua as texdoc.
