CTAN update: polyglossia

Jürgen Spitzmüller submitted an update to the polyglossia package. Version: 2.0 2024-02-17 License: mit lppl1.3 cc0 Summary description: An alternative to babel for XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX Announcement text:
2.0 (2024/02/17) We have bumped the version to 2.0 with this release, not so much since this is a revolutionary issue (it isn't), but (1.) to indicate the slow (and unfinished) transformation of the polyglossia code to latex3 which quite progressed in this release, and (2.) simply since the minor version number got ridiculously large meanwhile. The most important fix in this release concerns a problem that appeared with the recent l3kernel update and which broke compilation of many documents. As it is quite likely that this hits, or will hit, you if you use polyglossia, we encourage all users to upgrade. Here is the full list: Bug fixes ‣ Fix error with undefined property lists that unhides with l3kernel version 2024-02-13 (#626). ‣ Fix frenchfootnote option (#620). ‣ The error message on improper font setting is now correct if the main script is non-Latin, for non-Roman fonts (#571), and specifically for the CJK case (#621). ‣ Fix expansion of localnumeral (#622). New Features ‣ Add \inheritbabelshorthands (#604). ‣ Add \usebabelshorthands. ‣ Add shorthands for German gender-sensitive writing. ‣ Implement babel-style hyphenation for Finnish. Documentation improvements ‣ Fix documentation of Finnish shorthands (#623). Internal work ‣ The package code has been subjected to a major rewrite. Code has been cleaned up, and in general, polyglossia more consistently employs latex3 now. Note that this is an ongoing and yet unfinished project that will continue over the next releases.
