Kpfonts is a very full set of fonts for typesetting text and math. It includes real small caps, all current math symbols (TeX, AMS and more), in normal and bold version. The kepler's project is to provide a very large set of options to customize your typesetting. This 2.3 release gets: - a new option 'nofligatures' with no fi, fl, ff, ffi and ffl ligature. The 'f' glyphs are redesigned to get a good result; now, searching a word like 'difficult' became possible with all viewers. - a new option 'partialup' with upright design of the \partial symbol, - a new shape 'scsl' with slanted smallcaps. - new kerning uppercase-lowercase of large small caps. - new kerning P-s.

kpfonts – A complete set of fonts for text and mathematics

The family contains text fonts in roman, sans-serif and monospaced shapes, with true small caps and old-style numbers; the package offers full support of the textcomp package. The mathematics fonts include all the AMS fonts, in both normal and bold weights.

Each of the font types is available in two main versions: default and ‘light’. Each version is available in four variants: default; oldstyle numbers; oldstyle numbers with old ligatures such as ct and st, and long-tailed capital Q; and veryoldstyle with long s. Other variants include small caps as default or ‘large small caps’, and for mathematics both upright and slanted shapes for Greek letters, as well as default and narrow versions of multiple integrals.

The fonts were originally derived from URW Palladio (with URW’s agreement) though the fonts are very clearly different in appearance from their parent.
