Announcement text:

 Improvements and new features

 - xinttools and xintexpr:

     1. slightly improves the speed of \xintTrim.

     2. speed gains for the handlers of comma separated lists
        implementing Python-like slicing and item extraction.
        Relevant non (user) documented macros better documented
        in sourcexint.pdf.

 - significant documentations tweaks (inclusive of suppressing
   things!), and among them two beautiful hyperlinked tables with
   both horizontal and vertical rules which bring the documentation
   of the xintexpr syntax to a kind of awe-inspiring perfection...
   except that implementation of some math functions is still

 Bug fixes

 - fix two 1.2i regressions caused by undefined macros (\xintNthElt
   in certain branches and [list][N] item extraction in certain
   cases.) The test files existed but were not executed prior to
   release. Automation in progress.
