the beta works ok .. are there any messages with respect to missing
fonts or map files?

FYI, with recent betas (2014.05.17 from a context standalone or
2014.05.21 from Debian TL2014), I still find the problem with the
internal mptopdf converter dropping glyphs.  I work around it in the
Makefile (convert using mptopdf externally).  However, in case it is
worth tracking down, here is the original report with the minimal

you see the message:

LuaTeX warning (file cmr10): Font cmr10 at 3000 not found

so you need to load a map file that matches the used fonts:



The internal mptopdf converter in MkIV omits some glyphs in the labels.
Here's a minimal example (test.tex):




And testfig.1 is produced by testfig.mp

label(btex $\Omega$ etex, (0,0));
currentpicture := currentpicture scaled 5;

Here's testfig.1 to save a step in debugging:

%%BoundingBox: -18 -18 18 18
%%HiResBoundingBox: -17.98805 -17.0195 17.98798 17.0195
%%Creator: MetaPost 1.803

%%Page: 1 1
  0 0 0 setrgbcolor
-17.98805 -17.0195 moveto
(\012) cmr10 49.81323 fshow

Then do:

   mptopdf testfig.1
   context test.tex
   xpdf test.pdf

The first framed box, using the internal mps->pdf conversion, is empty.
The second framed go, using the pdf file produced by mptopdf, correctly
contains \Omega.
