>  - Correct nature of expansion in \lua_... functions.
>  - Improve documentation of \ior_map... functions.
>  - Extend "check-declarations" for expl3 loading to cover more

>  - Extend use of FPU in dealing with floating point input for
>    box and coffin scalings, etc.

as always, thanks for the uploads; the updates should have made their
way around the world by now, and are now in tex live (though possibly
not yet at every mirror).
