Summary0000999: luatex: use public poppler API
Descriptionluatex uses the xpdf compatibility API provided by poppler.

However, upstream poppler sees this as "unsupported" and changes it when and how they want, see e.g. http://tracker.luatex.org/view.php?id=998

Their view is that consumers should use one of the public APIs, i.e. the glib, qt4, qt5, or cpp ones.

Please switch luatex to use one of those. If the API provided by upstream does not fulfill luatex's needs, upstream is willing to talk
(https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/poppler).

(I'm not upstream, I'm just a packager that would like to reduce future breakage.)
