What's New in This Release:
Analogously to the .ft and f pair, two new requests ‘gcolor’ and ‘fcolor’ (which pair with m and M, respectively) have been added to set the glyph and background colours.
A new read-only, string-valued register ‘.sty’ returns the name of the current style.
Two new conditional operators ‘F 〈name〉’ and ‘S 〈name〉’ have been added. ‘F’ is true if a font 〈name〉 exists. ‘S’ is true if a style 〈name〉 has been registered.
Cyrillic characters have been added to the ‘utf8’ and ‘html’ output devices.
