CTAN Update: fontspec

Will Robertson submitted an update to the fontspec package. Version: 2.5 2016-01-30 License: lppl1.3 Summary description: Advanced font selection in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX Announcement text:
I am pleased to announce a new update for the fontspec package. Please note it contains some changes regarding font encodings and the xunicode package that *may* affect its interactions with other packages. More details in the notes below and the package documentation. - v2.5 (2016/01/30) "TL2016 release" * Provide a new Unicode font encoding ("TU") to replace EU1/EU2 and xunicode. If this causes problems, load fontspec with the `[euenc]` option to revert to the old behaviour. * New command `\emfontdeclare` for defining font shapes when arbitrarily nesting the `\emph` command. * Allow slanted small caps and better internal methods for "combining" font shapes; this fixes a few bugs. * Incorporate "new" font script tags for Indic fonts. E.g., when selecting `Script=Bengali`, fontspec will first query the font for the `bng2` OpenType script, and if not found select `beng`. * Restrict some font features from being able to be used within `\addfontfeatures` that were causing some font-loading confusion. * Fixed behaviour in which `\baselineskip` and `\f at size` would (possibly) change values after loading the packge. * Remove copy of `fixltx2e`'s code for footnote symbols; handled by LaTeX2e now. * Deprecate `ExternalLocation` for the simpler (and identical) `Path` option. * Improvement to some warnings/info messages. * Improve structure of code.
