This package has been updated at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your local mirror. Thank you, Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College ....................................................................... The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: kpfonts Author's name: Caignaert christophe Location on CTAN: /fonts/kpfonts Summary description: Full set of fonts for text and math typesetting License type: gpl Announcement text:
Kpfonts loads the amsmath package, except if you use the 'noamsmath' option. It was not good if you want to use 'amsmath' with one of its options. With the 3.1 release, you can use the options of 'amsmath' as options of 'kpfonts'. They are simulated or passed to 'amsmath'. Christophe Caignaert

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.
