Summary description: Advanced font selection in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX

Announcement text:

## v2.7d (2019/02/13)

    * Allow the user to manually change ` mdefault`, `sfdefault`,
      `	tdefault` 
      if desired. Note this could cause problems if the `fontspec`
      encoding does not match the encoding of the specified families.
    * Additional optional argument for `EncodingCommand`.
    * Suppress spurious warnings for `HyphenChar` feature in XeLaTeX.
    * Add `Ligatures=TeXOff` even though it's not a real OpenType
      feature. (Functionally equivalent to `Ligatures=TeXReset`.)
    * New scripts definitions to match OpenType 1.8.3 (thanks Werner!).
    * Documentation changes for `Numbers=Arabic`, `HypenChar=None` for
      `	tfamily`.
    * Documentation fixes (thanks `muzimuzhi`!).
    * Prepare for `FakeBold` being available in `luaotfload` (thanks
    * Bug fix for doubled + symbol when setting `tlig` feature in
    * Bug fix for Harfbuzz use. (Support still very minimal I'm afraid.)
