As per plans I shared a little while ago, I’ve just upgraded the default Tectonic bundle to a new version based on TeXLive 2018.1. Besides bugfixes and improvements from the past couple of years’ worth of development, I’ve added the “arts and humanities” TeXLive collection which should add a pretty big contingent of packages to the release. While the
tlextras-2016.0r4 bundle was 1.7 GiB, the new one is 2.2 GiB.
You may have a one-time failure in compiling your next document when Tectonic realizes that the default bundle has changed:

Testing has been sparse, so please keep an eye out for any problems and report them here! (Or GitHub, but I like to try and discuss things here first so that they’re more discoverable, and some issues may not be “bugs” per se.)
