the daemon witters more:

> The following information was provided by the package's contributor.
> Name of contribution: fontspec
> Author's name: Will Robertson
> Author's email: will.robertson at latex-project.org
> Package version: v2.2a
> 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 minor bug fix release addresses compatibility with other packages
> such as mathspec that use old fontspec internals.
> This update does NOT address the current problem with polyglossia
> introduced with v2.2; to work around this yourself, please load
> xkeyval at the same time as you load polyglossia:
>     \usepackage{xkeyval,polyglossia}
> The advantage for fontspec with not loading xkeyval is to be able to
> load the package before \documentclass, which can be useful when

thanks for the upload; i've installed the new version, and updated the
