Will Robert­son sub­mit­ted an up­date to the fontspec pack­age. Ver­sion: 2.5 2016-01-30 Li­cense: lp­pl1.3 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Ad­vanced font se­lec­tion in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX An­nounce­ment text:
I am pleased to an­nounce a new up­date for the fontspec pack­age. Please note it con­tains some changes re­gard­ing font en­cod­ings and the xu­ni­code pack­age that *may* af­fect its in­ter­ac­tions with other pack­age's. More de­tails in the notes be­low and the pack­age doc­u­men­ta­tion. - v2.5 (2016/01/30) "TL2016 re­lease" * Pro­vide a new Uni­code font en­cod­ing ("TU") to re­place EU1/EU2 and xu­ni­code. If this causes prob­lems, load fontspec with the `[eu­enc]` op­tion to re­vert to the old be­haviour. * New com­mand `\em­font­de­clare` for defin­ing font shapes when ar­bi­trar­ily nest­ing the `\emph` com­mand. * Al­low slanted small caps and bet­ter in­ter­nal meth­ods for "com­bin­ing" font shapes; this fixes a few bugs. * In­cor­po­rate "new" font script tags for Indic fonts. E.g., when se­lect­ing `Script=Ben­gali`, fontspec will first query the font for the `bng2` OpenType script, and if not found se­lect `beng`. * Restrict some font fea­tures from be­ing able to be used within `\add­font­fea­tures` that were caus­ing some font-load­ing con­fu­sion. * Fixed be­haviour in which `\base­li­neskip` and `\f at size` would (pos­si­bly) change val­ues af­ter load­ing the packge. * Re­move copy of `fixltx2e`'s code for foot­note sym­bols; han­dled by LaTeX2e now. * Dep­re­cate `Ex­ter­nalLo­ca­tion` for the sim­pler (and iden­ti­cal) `Path` op­tion. * Im­prove­ment to some warn­ings/info mes­sages. * Im­prove struc­ture of code.
