I'v installed tlpretest 2019 and everything seems to be OK (from my
documents of view).
I wish to add new command to TeXlive which calls "luacsplain" and it is
a shortcut for "luatex -fmt pdfcsplain". The "pdfcsplain" command exists
and it means "pdftex -fmt pdfcsplain". So, pdfcsplain -> luacsplain may
be something analogical to pdflatex -> lualatex.
I did major change in luatex -fmt pdfcsplain last week: now, it loads
all hyphen patterns dynanically (except patterns 0). And I am ready to
propagate this form of CSPlain as preferred for future. This is a reason
of my need of a shortcut "luacsplain".
I mean that it si much more simple to new users of CSplain to use
luacsplain and not to waste time to study a special and old "encoding
dance" used in CSplain in 1990s. But the pdfcsplain command may be kept
for conservative users.
The existing possibility to run luacsplain via "lautex -fmt pdfcsplain"
may be kept unchanged because this is impossible to remove this from all
documentation about CSplain (and from all home-made configurations which
is based on this command). So new command may be implemented as link
ln -s pdfcsplain.fmt luacsplain.fmt ... in texmf-var/web2c/luatex/ and
ln -s luatex luacsplain ... in binaries.
