#2287 Workaround for broken italic correction in LuaLaTeX

LuaTeX (18)


For the current version of LuaLaTeX, the correction of spacing after italics is broken. As a workaround, one could comment out some lines in the luatex-unicode-letters.tex as they did on TL2013.

All entries from \l 1D400 to \l 1D7CB has to be taken out.

In TL2013 this section is marked with:
% XXX: luatex math italic correction bug
% http://www.tug.org/pipermail/tex-live/2011-October/030295.html

The complete "corrected" .tex-file can be seen here http://tug.org/svn/texlive/trunk/Master/texmf-dist/tex/generic/config/

After changing the file, the FNDB has to be refreshed as well as a recreation of the LuaLaTeX format.

Thank your for your efforts.

    Thank you for the report! I have copied the corrected .tex. The correction will be available with the next MiKTeX update.
