+\section{Updates to \textsf{amsmath}}
+The \textsf{amsmath} package has two updates at this release.
+\item The spacing to the left of the \texttt{aligned} and
+  \texttt{gathered} environments has been fixed, the spurious thin
+  space is no longer added by default. Package options control this
+  to revert to the original behaviour where required, see the
+  \textsf{amsldoc} guide for further details. 
+\item The large delimiters around generalised fractions (for example
+  in the \verb|\binom| construct) did not work in previous releases if
+  using Lua\TeX or Xe\TeX\ with OpenType math fonts. This is releated
+  to the lack of specific metrcs for this use in the OpenType Math
+  table. In principle Lua\TeX\ has two additional named metrics
+  to control the delimiters but these are not initialised by default,
+  and in Xe\TeX\ it does not seem possible to make them work at all.
+  So for Unicode \TeX\ systems, a new implementation of
+  \verb|\genfrac| is used at this release that uses \verb|\left\right|
+  internally but parameterised to give spacing as close to the
+  original as possible. The implementation in (pdf)\TeX\ is
+  unaffected.
