You didn’t read my entire message announcing the MacTeX pretest, because

5) There has been a dramatic restructuring of the LuaTeX code.
This will make it much easier to maintain in coming years, but
may cause some problems this year. In preliminary testing, LuaTeX
compiled most straight LaTeX files. But it crashed when
using Robertson’s fontspec, a crucial package when using system
fonts. This crash can be avoided by adding a file
one line of text:
The programmers know of this bug, so it should be fixed in the
release version of LuaTeX.
