Summary description: Computer Modern fonts including matching non-latin 

Announcement text:

This is a major upgrade of NewComputerModern.

The Math font has been greatly expanded and now should match XITS/STIX 
fonts in glyph coverage.

The Serif text fonts now support Hebrew and Cherokee with all characters 
designed from scratch and matching cmr weights and cmr Hebrew Math 

A new Book weight is provided for all fonts (including math), providing a 
solution to the problem that cmr was always thin. The Book weight can now 
be used as the default, and it is the default option of the latest 
fontsetup package. It is heavier and thus more enjoyable to read and can 
be used to produce books printed in high resolution. The metrics of the 
Book weight are exactly the same with the (old) Regular fonts, so they are 
(or should be) backwards compatible with old documents (producing the same 
output, just heavier).
