Summary description: An ArabTeX-like interface for LuaLaTeX

Announcement text:

arabluatex v1.16:
- exporting ArabTeX/Buckwalter to unicode Arabic .tex source files has been improved.
- bug #43 in luacolor has been fixed, making unnecessary the quick fix introduced in arabluatex.
- \aemph now uses ulem, which allows emphasized expressions to break over lines. ʾabǧad numbers still use \overline (which is more elegant), but without amsmath which arabluatex does not load anymore.
- arabluatex shares some booleans with ekdosis package to come.
- improved documentation.
- moved bugtracker to gitlab.
