CTAN update: fontspec

Will Robertson submitted an update to the fontspec package. Version: 2.9b License: lppl1.3c Summary description: Advanced font selection in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX Announcement text:
## v2.9b (2024/04/27) * Add new `Letters=Uppercase` (LuaLaTeX only) as an interface to `luaotfload` feature which automatically performs case-changing at the font level (i.e., not using macros to process the text tokens). (#461) * Fix long-standing bug when loading fonts which only have extensions specified internally to the font shape (#504). E.g.: \setmainfont{pagella}[ UprightFont = texgyrepagella-regular.otf ] * If a font is loaded with a specific script (e.g. `Script=CJK`) and it is not available within the font, `fontspec` previously would fall back on a default script. This is now changed to always pass through the requested script so the renderer can make use of that information regardless of whether the font itself supports the script. (#507) * Remove LuaTeX code that resets various `hypenchar` settings seemingly erroneously. (#344) * Rework documentation to remove reference to local and non-free fonts. This allows compilation via Github Actions, which will aid streamlining/automating releases in the future. (#157, #465) * Adjust approach to removing spaces from font names internally. This may have unintended consequences, please write if so. (#484) * Work around clash if a class defines an option of (say) `math=foo`, where `fontspec` is expecting `math=true`. Now, the global option will be ignored. (#501)
