Summary description: An ArabTeX-like interface for LuaLaTeX

Announcement text:

arabluatex v1.13:
- Exporting Unicode Arabic to an external file: arabluatex is now able to 
  produce a duplicate of the original .tex source file in
  which all arabtex or buckwalter strings will have been replaced with 
  Unicode equivalents, either in Arabic script or in any
  accepted standard of transliteration. See the documentation on pp. 57-59 
  for more details. As a result of this new feature, it is
  now possible to further process Unicode converted files with document 
  converters such as pandoc.
- New optional argument to \arbmark, either 'rl' or 'lr', to override the 
  contextual analysis.
- New 'color' option to 'arabverse' environment.
- Use precomposed unicode ǧ/Ǧ instead of 'g/G + caron above'
- A quick fix to a tiny bug (or rather a missing feature) in either 
  'adjustbox' or 'luacolor' has been added.
