Hi Hans,

I tried to use Chinese opentype fonts with luatex + plain fmt but I
failed. Only with Chinese TTF fonts it can work.

This a simple example:


我想实现 LuaTeX 对中文的支持


When I compiled it, I got the following messages:

this is because a cidmap is needed and the kpse that you use does not have it; upcoming versions of kpse (and luatex's kpse lib) will support it given that you also adapted your texmf.cnf accordingly then

so a bit patience is needed
