Summary description: Unofficial reference manual covering LaTeX2e

Announcement text:

A new version of the unofficial LaTeX2e reference manual is available.

The easiest way to view the manual is by visiting: https://latexref.xyz
It is also available in TeX distributions, and on CTAN at:

Notable changes since the last release:

* For each node name "foo & bar", provide separate anchors for foo and
bar, so they can be referenced individually, especially online.
* Brief discussion of bold math alternatives, including for OpenType.

* description of definition and use of optional arguments somewhat clarified.
* \texttt{\textbackslash} (and \textbraceleft and \textbraceright)
require T1 or other non-default encoding to produce typewriter characters.
* \dots description extended, with more about the amsmath redefinition,
and Unicode vs. traditional typesetting.
* Spanish translation brought up to date.

* For the TeX output, enable microtype, since Texinfo now supports it.
