Summary description: Advanced font selection in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX

Announcement text:

## v2.8a (2022/01/15)

  * Add `SwashFont` and `BoldSwashFont` features to support LaTeX's now-builtin `\textsw`
    and `\swshape` commands, with matching `SwashFeatures` and `BoldSwashFeatures`.
    A simple implementation that has scope to get more complex if need be.
  * Remove some legacy code that extended the NFSS in ways that are now handled by LaTeX2e natively.
  * Long neglected updates through various Github Issues and pull requests.
    Thanks for your patience with the delays.
