tex-luaotfload{,-doc} update to 3.17

2020-09-02 luaotfload v3.15
 * The font database is updated more reliably if fonts get deleted.
 * In multiple error cases, error messages are shown instead of silently
   generating bad output.
 * Write glyph ids instead of internal identifiers to DVI files. This
   allows using OpenType fonts when working with dvilualatex.
   (This requires additional support from the DVI reader)
 * The set of font features which are enabled by default has been
   changed to be more similar to HarfBuzz.
   Especially Above-base mark Positioning (abvm),
   Below-base mark Positioning (blwm), Contextual
   Alternates (calt), Cursive Positioning (curs),
   Distances (dist), and Required Contextual Alternates
   (rclt) are now enabled by default for all scripts.
 * Added a mathfontdimen font feature which allows emulating
   fontdimen values from xetex or traditional TeX math fonts.
 * Initial support for variable fonts in node mode.
2020-12-30 luaotfload v3.16
 *  The fontloader has been synced with the context code from
2020-12-30
 *  The entry point is called luaotfload.lua instead of
    luaotfload-main.lua (but the old name is still provided for
    compatibility).
 *  pre/post_shaping_filter callbacks has been added.
 *  The number of lua-files and submodules shown in the log-file
    has been reduced. But it is extended again by setting the
environment variable LUAOTFLOAD_TRACE_SUBMODULES=1.
 *  The HarfBuzz based shaper will in some situations drop
hyphenation points. This happens less frequently now since the new
version uses first/second discretionaries (the mechanism described in
the LuaTeX manual, section 5.6 for the of-f-ice example) to support a
limited amount of nesting.
 *  When the node shaper is used, experimental support for
    OpenType variable fonts has been added. To use them, set the
font feature axis to a comma separated list of axis names and values.
    (E.g.  axis={weight=600}) The supported axis names and value
    range depend on the font.
 *  The font features upper and lower can be used to map
    the text of a font to upper or lowercase before displaying it.
Currently this implements the untailored Unicode case mapping
algorithm, but it is planned to add tailoring later.
 *  A number of small bugfixes.
2021-01-08 luaotfload v3.17
 *  The fontloader has been synced with the context code from 2021-01-07.
    This improves support for advanced CFF based OpenType variable fonts.

Log message:
tex-luaotfload{,-doc}: update to 2.96

2.95
In contradiction to the last announcement this version of the fontloader
is still compatible with luatex 1.07. So updates will continue. This
version syncs the files with the ConTeXt files from 2019-01-28. It
improves the handling of the lucida fonts - the demi font is now used as
bold. The resolver code has been cleaned up a bit.

2.96
- In version 2.95 letterspacing was broken due to a change in the
fontloader. In version 2.96 this is now repaired. At the same time a
number of long-standing oddities and bugs in the letterspacing has been
corrected. This can change the output of existing documents!! See the
documentation for more information and ways to restore the old behaviour,

- A problem with the detection of bold fonts has been corrected (issue 41,
pull request 42).

- The fontloader has been synced with the context files from 2019-02-14.

Log message:
tex-luaotfload{,-doc}: update to 2.94

This version syncs the files with the ConTeXt files from2018/12/19. It
extends the mode key to allow the use of more fontloaders. It is the last
version which can be used with luatex 1.07. Future versions will need 1.09
and will be available only at the github site until texlive 2018 is freezed.
