Hi all,

This is not directly related to Org-Mode (apologies for the light
off-topic), but I thought this new LaTeX package uploaded to CTAN could
be of interest to those who regularly export from Org to LaTeX and want
to get a document as 'perfect' as possible, typographically speaking ;-)

The Lua-typo package (according to its description): "tracks common
typographic flaws in LuaLaTeX documents, especially widows, orphans,
hyphenated words split over two pages, consecutive lines ending with
hyphens, paragraphs ending on too short lines, etc."

This package can detect any of the following scenarios (taken from the
package documentation):

- paragraph’s last line nearly full?
- paragraph’s last line too short?
- nearly empty page (just a few lines)?
- overfull lines?
- underfull lines?
- widows (top of page)?
- orphans (bottom of page)
- hyphenated word split across two pages?
- too many consecutive hyphens?
- paragraph’s last full line hyphenated?
- short words (1 or 2 chars) at end of line?
- same (part of) word starting two consecutive lines?
- same (part of) word ending two consecutive lines?

It should be noted that the package works only in LuaLaTeX, and that it
highlights flaws only (in draft mode), but does not correct them. It's
similar to another older package, Impnattypo

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
