Update summary:
The latest version of fontspec (v2.1a) brings the following

  * Sync with latest expl3 version     
  * Fix for colours bug introduced in the last update     
  * Fix for for bad interaction with LuaLaTeX and fallback fonts       
(such as using \slshape when no slanted font specified)     
  * Behaviour/messaging improvement when scripts/languages are requested       
that do not exist in the font
  * Fix bug with detecting font features/scripts in some cases with:

      - `\fontspec_if_feature:n(TF)`         
      - `\fontspec_if_language:n(TF)`         
      - `\fontspec_if_current_script:n(TF)`         
      - `\fontspec_if_current_language:n(TF)`
  * Code for "visible space" fixed for LuaLaTeX use     
  * Some messages in the log file are improved     
  * Lots of internal changes to bring the implementation closer       
to being "native expl3".
