Summary description:  OpenType ‘loader’ for Plain TeX and LaTeX

Announcement text:
 2020-05-01 luaotfload v3.13

  * A problem with text fonts with minimal math table has been fixed (issue 148.)
    In new luaotfload versions, math parameters will only be loaded for fonts with `script=math`.
    If you do want to set math parameters for fonts with other scripts, add `-nomathparam`.
    We strongly recommend against setting math parameters for text fonts because
    these would overwrite parameters from actual math fonts.

  * A bug in harf-mode that could lead to missing chars and freezing was corrected (issue 141).

  * A font size problem in harf-mode has been fixed (issue 147).

  * An error if the main function was called twice has been fixed (issue 145).

  * Allow .ttf fonts to be loaded with a map file with luahbtex (issue 142) (issue 143).

  * Fonts installed for a single user on windows are now found (issue 138).

  * A problem with wrong TeX-ligatures in harf mode has been fixed (issue 139).

  * The debugging output has been changed (issue 131).

  * a missing U+1E9E (Capital ß) in a font is replaced by
    SS instead of giving a missing character.

  * extended the color handling to be compatible with the luacolor package

  * sync with context files from 2020-04-30
