Summary description: A bundle of packages submitted by Heiko Oberdiek

Announcement text:
Update of oberdiek and hyperref bundles on CTAN.

The incompatible changes to luatex in recent luatex versions have
required updates to most packages that have any "driver" or "engine"
specific features.

In particular this has affected ifpdf and hyperref packages.

Heiko Oberdiek has not had time to update packages due to other
pressures on his time and so Heiko and the members of the LaTeX3

The github organisation


forms a public repository for maintaining the packages.
Issues may be reported on the github site, for example:


Additional repositories may be added if updates are needed.

Issues may also be reported to the ho-tex at tug.org mailing list.

Currently concentrating just on luatex compatibility issues.
