Summary description:  Objects and proxies in LaTeX3

Announcement text:

 New features have been added to this "minor" update:

 - `macro` elements: a macro is just any untyped control sequence
   inside an object, you can take its address (aka the control sequence
   name) with the `\object_macro_adr` function and expand/execute it with
   `\object_macro_call.`.   Since macros are generic control sequences,
   it is up to the user to properly create them (with `\def`, `\cs_new:Npn`,
   `\newcommand` or any other suitable mechanism);

 - _Embedded objects_: You can put objects inside other objects in
   various ways, in this release you can do that with embedded objects too.
   The main advantage is that you can put an embedded object declaration
   inside the proxy with `\proxy_put_embedded` so that every object created
   by that proxy will have its own instance of embedded object automatically
   created. You can retrieve the addresses of embedded objects with the
   `\object_embedded_adr` function.
