```Thank you, Hans.

I am certainly willing to install the ConTeXt and LuaTeX betas.

Could you point me to the right place to get the files and to intall them?

Are the betas distributed as binaries (I run Windows 7 64-bit.) or must
I build them myself?

see attached ... runs ok on my machine with latest context beta and latest
luatex beta ... the tracker tells context to create an mp file too

that will give pretty large files as there's a lot going on at the tex end

Hans

ps. given mp development and the fact that context adapts to the latest mp
and luatex it's best to run the minimals from the contextgarden; these can
be installed alongside texlive
