The latest version of the fontspec package has been uploaded to CTAN.
Expect to see it there as soon as the CTAN team can make it public.
- There are a bunch of new options supported (mostly to do with
various Japanese/Asian fonts), with yet more examples in the
- Unfortunately, there have been some backwards-incompatible
changes to a couple of the font features and options, so be on the
lookout when you upgrade if you've made extensive use of such things.
Sorry about that.
- Optical size is now supported for both OpenType and Multiple
- The bug that Bruno reported a little while ago is fixed.
- Probably some other stuff, too!
The documentation loads VERY slowly in Tiger's Preview.app for some
reason, so it's on my list to create a stripped down version without
all the different examples in different fonts.
Problems, etc., please report here.
After any short-term problems are dealt with, I won't be updating
fontspec too much (if you couldn't tell from how long this release
took!). Further architectural changes require a fairly significant re-
write that I probably don't have time to do...and I'd like to
concentrate my extra energy towards more general MacTeX stuff if I
get the chance. I've got a roadmap, but I'll be taking a detour
before I head down it.
