OK, I have removed the lock in minimals, so the beta in minimals
reflects the state on your site again. The current version is "the old
patched beta" since the official current version doesn't work with the
latest luatex.

In theory one should not need to use luatools --selfupdate any more
when switching to older or newer versions of ConTeXt with mtx-update
(first-setup), but I would like to fix that in a slightly different
way one day.

Three less common platforms still lack tha latest luatex. (If that
includes your platform and you would like to use it, you can send me a
new binary.)
