> The following information was provided by the package's contributor.
> Name of contribution: unicode-math
> Author's name: Will Robertson
> Package version: v0.6
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/unicode-math/
> Summary description: Unicode mathematics support for XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX
> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> The latest version of unicode-math adds several features, including
> \mathversion support and a large number of internal improvements.
> Apologies for any inconvenience caused while unicode-math was broken
> after I updated fontspec last week.  My plans to do the updates
> simultaneously went awry.
> Complete change notes for this release are:
>   * Math versions (finally) implemented; can now change maths fonts
>     mid-document without reinitialising everything
>     (thanks to Ulrike Fischer and Ulrik Vieth)
>   * Symbols file `unimath-symbols.pdf` now uses maths versions to compare
>     all of the OpenType maths fonts I currently have access to
>   * Over- and under- braces, brackets, and parentheses now work in XeTeX
>     (thanks to Claudio Beccari)
>   * Many internal changes, including a re-write of the `range` feature;
>     it should now be faster and more robust
>   * Tentative programmer's interface for querying the current math style:
>     `\l_um_mathstyle_tl`.
>   * Remove (outdated) interaction with beamer; you must specify
>     `professionalfonts` manually for now
>   * Quieten the console output when loading maths fonts with incomplete maths
>     style coverage
>   * Synonym added: `\lnot` -> `\neg`
>   * Two added Unicode symbols (names tentative): `\blanksymbol` and `\openbox`
>     (thanks to Apostolos Syropoulos)
>   * Fixed literal sub-/super-script input.
