Summary description: Advanced font selection in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX

Announcement text:
- v2.6 (2017/02/12)

    * Change the new behaviour of `\emph` (and `\emfontdeclare`) to act
      only on the NFSS font shape; using the series as well was too
    * Add `\strong` as the "weight" analogy to `\emph`. This will need
      some extra syntactic sugar from `fontspec` before it becomes
      truly useful.
    * Add `Numbers=Tabular` alias for `Numbers=Monospaced`.
    * Fix occasional bug with "chained" keyval choices such as
      `Numbers={Lining,Proportional}` in which only the first choice
      would be recognised.
    * Fix interaction with `RawFeature` and "proper" `fontspec`
    * Fix regression in which `C:\...` file paths in Windows couldn't
      be used.
    * Fix regression in XeTeX in which `Ligatures=TeX` overrode
      `Mapping=..` regardless of where the former was declared in the
      feature list.
    * Fix bug (sorry!) in `\newopentypefeature`.
    * Improve monospace font in documentation.

    * N.B. There is currently a known issue with TTC fonts and LuaTeX;
      currently they cannot be loaded through the `fontspec` interface,
      but this issue should soon be addressed by the `luaotfload`
