i'm vacantly staring at my screen, but the daemon disturbs me with:
> Name of contribution: fontspec
> Author's name: Will Robertson
> Package version: v2.2
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/fontspec/
> Summary description: Advanced font selection in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX
> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> This is a relatively large update for fontspec featuring quite a
> number of internal changes -- please report any troubles you find and
> I'll address them as swiftly as I can. The notes for this version
> release can be found below. Please ensure your version of the expl3
> package is up-to-date before installing this update.
> Happy TeX-ing!
> - v2.2 (2011/09/13)
> * Support alternate selections in CharacterVariant (cvxx in OpenType)
> using new syntax `[CharacterVariant=5:2]`.
> * Add `fontspec`-compatible `\oldstylenums` and `\liningnums` commands.
> * New programmer's function `\fontspec_set_fontface:NNnn` (for use when
> `\zf at basefont` might previously have been queried).
> * Log file output is slightly tidier.
> * Some old lingering bugs squashed:
> - Small caps font selection was broken in some cases.
> (Thanks Enrico Gregorio.)
> - Fonts loaded by filename with under-specified shapes threw an error
> (e.g., asking explicitly for bold but not italic).
> (Thanks Vafa Khalighi.)
> * Documentation improvements largely due to Markus BÃ¶hning.
> * Many internal changes, among which:
> - `xkeyval` package no longer used for option processing;
> `expl3`'s `l3keys` used instead.
> This allows `fontspec` to be loaded before `\documentclass`
> (thanks Heiko Oberdiek for reporting the issue)
> and fixes a potential conflict with the `preview` package
> (thanks again Vafa).
> - Internal names changed; avoid "\zf at basefont", "\zf at family", etc.
> from now on -- there are public interfaces now to get access to the
> same information
> - Update `expl3` support to latest CTAN version.
thanks for the upload; i've installed the new version, and updated the
