Summary description: Unicode mathematics support for XeTeX and LuaTeX

Announcement text:

- v0.8d (2017/01/25)

   * `vargreek-shape=TeX` and `vargreek-shape=unicode` package options 
dropped; for consistency and compatibility, `\phi` and
`\epsilon` should and will now behave the same as in `TeX`.
   * On that note, when using control sequences such as `\mbfitsansvarphi` 
(and so on), there were a few faulty definitions. The new
behaviour is to consistenyl define the `varphi` and `varepsilon` ones as 
those with the "curly" designs.
   * Add `\wideoverbar`, `\widebreve`, `\widecheck`.
   * Add `\mathsection`, `\mathparagraph`.
   * Remove `\mupvarbeta`, `upold(Kk)oppa`, `\up(Ss)tigma`, `\up(Kk)oppa`, 
`\up(Ss)ampi` — none of these are maths symbols.
   * `!` (`\mathexclam`) changed from `\mathpunct` to `\mathclose` for 
backwards compatibility with TeX.
