I've heard about LuaLaTeX, but haven't taken the time to look into it, largely because I'm wary of changing my basic underlying workflow. I mostly use LaTeX for handouts and assignments in my courses, many of which don't change very much from year to year, so I don't want to have to massively rewrite various aspects of them, especially the complicated graphics! I also usually have to tweak them each year, which is why I can't just make them static external images, but because I'm familiar with the code, it's very easy to do the tweaks.
