the deamon snuck in while i was preparing for work:

> The following information was provided by the package's contributor.

> This is an intermediate release, to fix an issue with the calc package
> and l3calc. The original calc implementation truncates on integer
> division, but l3calc rounds instead. This change of behaviour can lead
> to unexpected results. As an immediate fix, expl3 no longer loads
> l3calc, which is still available as a stand-alone unit.
