CTAN Update: fontspec

Will Robertson submitted an update to the

package.

Version:  2.5a  2016-02-01
License:  lppl1.3

Summary description:  Advanced font selection in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Apologies, the recent release of fontspec had a major bug which
 broke unicode-math.  My test suite is clearly deficient!
 A couple of other fixes/changes were made in the mean time.
 Changes below:

 - v2.5a (2016/02/01) "bugs fixed"

     * Rather embarrassing bug fix! (`unicode-math` was broken.)
     * Remember to add the `fontspec.cfg` file to the distribution.
     * Remove `+trep` from `Ligatures=TeX` (no longer necessary).
     * Add some basic tests using `l3build`; more to come.
     * Simplify some internal Lua code and package loading code.

CTAN update: luatexja

The LuaTeX-ja project submitted an update to the

                 luatexja

package.

Version number: 20160131.0
License type: bsd

Summary description: Typeset Japanese with Lua(La)TeX

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
* luatexja-preset.sty: support Scale=<fp> and match options
     when nfssonly option is specified.
  * Japanese font family inside \verb and verbatim environment
    can be customized by \jttdefault.
    If luatexja-{preset,fontspec} with match option or ltjsclasses
    are used, \ttfamily changes current Japanese font fmaily to
    this \jttdefault.
  * Fixed several bugs.

Note that IVS support (to enable it, load luatexja-otf.sty and
execute \directlua{luatexja.otf.enable_ivs()}) breaks vertical
writing mode with current LuaTeX.
(This IVS support works fine with LuaJITTeX, strangely.)
