Summary description: An ArabTeX-like interface for LuaLaTeX

Announcement text:
arabluatex v1.8.2:
As of v1.8, arabluatex supports the so-called 'arabica' transliteration
standard (/Journal of Arabic and Islamic Studies/, published by Brill).
This release fixes several bugs that have found their way into v1.8 by
domino effect:
- tāʾ marbūṭah was wrongly interpreted before ʾiʿrāb when \arbup was
   active in dmg mode;
- -ī/-īyah were not parsed correctly in 'dmg' mode. 'loc' and 'arabica'
   rules needed to be more robust as well; 

And also into v1.8.1:
- ʾalif maqṣūrah being wrongly interpreted from buckwalter letter 'Y'
   to 'arabica' transliteration;
- \cap being discarded in transliterated sequences when they were
   inserted into non-transliterated Arabic environments or commands.

v1.9 will include more layouts of Arabic poetry, and as of v2.0
arabluatex should be able to produce TEI xml outputs.
