Well it is the last release before the renaming of the fonts, as I said

Huuu ... above you say

   "so older fonts are ok for context/luatex; while for xetex new fonts
    are needed"

and then

   "not for luatex/context"

So I assume the situation is as follows:

- for context/luatex: ok with old and new ones
- for context/xetex: new ones are necessary

Ok, I will think about updating the lmodern fonts, too, but renaming the
font names is really a pain, you shouldn't do that after a 1.something
release. No idea why they did that.

Thanks for the information

Best wishes
