[tex-live] luatex is too old for mkiv

    $ context --make cont-en.tex
    This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.40.6-2009090421 (TeX Live 2009)
    Your luatex binary is way too old, you need at least version 0.42.

As it happens, I noticed that myself a couple days ago and told Taco and
Hans.  It's unfortunate, but there will be no changes.  ConTeXt MkIV
users will need to use the normal ConTeXt MkIV download/install/update
mechanisms, which is what all significant MkIV users do already anyway.

Of course I hope next year things will be more settled and
context/luatex works in TL.

Meanwhile, ConTeXt MkII works ok, at least for me.
