I have just downloaded the rev. 375 of XeTeX and I get this warning if I
invoke fontspec:

! Font EU1/lmr/m/n/10=[lmroman10-regular] at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric
file or installed font not found.
<to be read again>
l.100 \fontencoding\encodingdefault\selectfont

I guess this is because my teTeX distribution doesn't have the Latin
Modern fonts installed, isn't it? (Wouldn't be a way to switch it off?)

BTW, this issue has the side effect that I cannot use fontspec without
setting all font families (roman, mono, sans) that I will use on the

I experience other error that must be caused by changes in fontspec.



    \linewidth \columnwidth
    \advance \linewidth -\leftmargin
    \parshape \@ne \leftmargin \linewidth


Text\footnote{This is a footnote.}.

In previous versions of fontspec (or XeTeX, I don't know), this worked
fine. But in the lastest version, the special indentation in footnote
doesn't work if \usepackage{fontspec} is not placed after \makeatother.
I don't know whether this is caused by a bug (although it took me some
time to discover what caused the error).

I hope it helps,
