comment Kerning and ligatures in upright math font with unicode-math
I agree with the comments, it's just a matter of resources (i.e., time). I'd hoped to address this many months ago by now… apologies for the inconvenience.

Turns out this is actually a duplicate question. My earlier code is here: tex.stackexchange.com/a/56319/179

Hmmm, I remember writing a more generic wrapper to get local vars out of a group using \tex_aftergroup:D at one point. It was one of my classic "fun to write but probably bad abstraction" moments. I wonder if I'd be able to find where I put it...

comment Capitalization in headings - a LaTeX3 approach
I miss me too :). Thanks for the additions, Joseph — I definitely like new \NoChangeCase functionality vs the old approach of ignoring braced material.

comment How to get straight quotation marks?
There's currently no way to override the defaults one a case-by-case basis, which is a bit of an oversight on my behalf. I'll try to add something. But if you want to remove them altogether without a .cfg file, you could also write \defaultfontfeatures[\rmfamily,\sffamily]{} after loading fontspec.

comment How to get straight quotation marks?
Argh—feet and inches glyphs are not straight quotes, they're primes. Use \renewcommand{\feet}{\char"2032\relax} \renewcommand{\inch}{\char"2033\relax} instead.

comment How to get straight quotation marks?
Because everyone wants curly quotes :) More seriously, because the default in TeX is to provide curly quotes. In fact, because the default for every book ever printed by a serious publisher is to use curly quotes. If you're using straight quotes in a document seriously, you're on your own. (Consider using the csquotes package to customise how it looks if you like the shorthand input syntax.) Adding a new (empty, if you like) fontspec.cfg file in your local texmf tree will prevent fontspec from loading the default one installed by the package.

comment XeLatex otf font won't load
Does windows allow paths with that format? I would have assumed you'd need to have Path={C:/Program Files/program/fonts/}. Also, it looks like you're using an extremely old version of fontspec. I recommend updating to the latest version of MiKTeX if possible.

Are you missing Extension = .otf or similar?

comment How to find out why xetex hangs for seconds at innocent pages?
In that case it sounds even more likely that the slowdown is caused by the images themselves. Sometimes it's unavoidable—you just need a big/complex image! If so, you could consider swapping in a dummy image or (as mentioned in the comments above) running in [draft] mode to speed things up in the mean time.
