A new upload. Mojca upgraded the build manager and we also updated some 
machines so all binaries (platforms) should be in sync now. (No binaries 
for apples M1 and microsofts SQ2 as we don't have these machines, so 
just good old intel and arm it is.)

On my rusty laptop the luametatex manual takes between 10 and 10.5 sec 
(depending on load). On the raspberry pi 64 bit it takes 32.5 sec 
(ubuntu, ssd on usb 3). The Windows Linux Subsystem (version 1) takes 
some 11.5 seconds and the domotica fitlet with a low power AMD A10 needs 
27.5 sec.) The ratios match measurements of a while ago. In the meantime 
the format file got smaller, memory more dynamic and the mem footprint 
also smaller. I expect a modern intel laptop cpu to need some 5 seconds 
and a decent desktop less but who knows. It's not easy to squeeze out 
more (the bottleneck is in the lua code as the (con)tex(t) code is 
pretty efficient so we pay a price for flexibility).

(In the process I saw that I bugged the xetex logo but that has to wait 
for a next upload. Hardly critital I suspect.)
