> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> Long, long, long overdue, this release of fontspec brings a
> significant new feature which allows default font features to be
> selected on a per-font basis, and to store such customisations in a
> separate configuration file.
> This allows font authors to distribute config files with their texmf
> fonts so that filename-based fonts can be loaded as complete families
> without specifying all the tedious bold/italic names, etc. 
> This feature has been barely tested; please let me know of any issues
> you come across. See section 7.1 in the manual for documentation of
> this feature. 
> "Official" (read, terse) change notes follow.
> - v2.3 (2013/02/25)
>     * Add support for per-font options in `\defaultfontfeatures`
>     * Add support for `<fontname>.fontspec` per-font configuration files
>     * Keep up-to-date with expl3 changes

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