CTAN update: fontspec

Will Robertson submitted an update to the fontspec package. Version number: 2.6 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Advanced font selection in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX Announcement text:
- v2.6 (2017/02/12) * Change the new behaviour of `\emph` (and `\emfontdeclare`) to act only on the NFSS font shape; using the series as well was too fragile. * Add `\strong` as the "weight" analogy to `\emph`. This will need some extra syntactic sugar from `fontspec` before it becomes truly useful. * Add `Numbers=Tabular` alias for `Numbers=Monospaced`. * Fix occasional bug with "chained" keyval choices such as `Numbers={Lining,Proportional}` in which only the first choice would be recognised. * Fix interaction with `RawFeature` and "proper" `fontspec` features. * Fix regression in which `C:\...` file paths in Windows couldn't be used. * Fix regression in XeTeX in which `Ligatures=TeX` overrode `Mapping=..` regardless of where the former was declared in the feature list. * Fix bug (sorry!) in `\newopentypefeature`. * Improve monospace font in documentation. * N.B. There is currently a known issue with TTC fonts and LuaTeX; currently they cannot be loaded through the `fontspec` interface, but this issue should soon be addressed by the `luaotfload` package. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/fontspec More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/fontspec
