The LaTeX3 Project submitted an update to the

                l3build, l3kernel, l3packages, and l3experimental


Version number: SVN 6377 2016-01-19
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: A testing and building system for (La)TeX

Announcement text:
Snapshot of SVN 6377

- Functions deprecated in 2014 removed (package authors have
  been informed of this change)
- Case changing code revised to give more useful behaviour when
  working with UTF-8 input with pdfTeX and with LICR accents
  across all engines. The latter are now recognised 'directly'
  by the code and so need no special handling. For UTF-8 input,
  the code path for pdfTeX will now case change any code point
  that can be typeset in the T1 font encoding.
- Retain whitespace in lines when processing with l3build. This
  will require adjustment to existing .tlg files, and is
  necessary to give better coverage of line normalisation
  between LuaTeX and other engines.
- Fix behaviour of l3galley and \addvspace/\addvpenalty
