> 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

> 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 * Remove (outdated) interaction with beamer; you must specify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.
