Extra Wide 2XL Breakpoint

This is a big one for me because I have a 49" ultra-wide monitor. This new breakpoint is designed for 1536px and larger.

With Tailwind 2.0, the default spacing scale has been extended to include micro values as well as new values for use-cases where larger values are needed!
