Hang on a sec — how urgent is this? This seems like a fairly drastic step; there’s no problem for me to make a fontspec release on demand… the only reason I don’t update more frequently is that the CTAN/TL updating business involves real humans spending time on it.

But I’d be happy to perform an update by the end of the week if this was convenient for you.
