With apologies for the flurry of updates...

...version 0.994a is now available; see http://scripts.sil.org/xetex  
or use i-Installer, as usual.

There are no new features, only bug-fixes/tweaks; nevertheless, the  
"early adopters" who grabbed 0.994 already should update to this  

This version fixes the letterspace bug (affecting subsequent \font  
definitions); adds the letterspace amount to the italic correction;  
and xdv2pdf can again run on Panther (the previous version required  

This package also includes updated geometry.cfg, crop.cfg and  
hyperref.cfg files, which should help typical LaTeX jobs run more  
smoothly. However, there is also the possibility that they will have  
bad interactions with other packages; see the recent thread  
discussing geometry.sty and XeTeX 0.994.

Thanks to all who found and reported issues with 0.994; let's hope  
this version lasts a little longer! ;)
