Announcement text:

 - Add U+231C-231Fi and U+2A7D-2A7E to the math font.

 - Improve math top accent positions.

 - Fix spacing of math italic i and j.

 - Increase the gap between \sum and its limits.

 - Improved math braces and brackets based on STIX Two Math font.

   the text sup/superscript glyphs as they don’t look good besides
   being incomplete and inconsistent.

   were incomplete and virtually unsupported.

   had wrong glyph mapping for 6, 7, 8 and 9.

 - Fix several Libertinus Serif Bold italic alternate glyphs that
   were not bold.

   looked like superscript circled + and -.
