stealth up­date of pack­ages

1. i re­cently re­alised that our mir­ror of macros/plain/base wasn't de­liv­er­ing the cor­rect stuff (don's lat­est up­dates went into sys­tems/knuth/dist/lib and not to the "canon­i­cal" place on ctan for the files). i've there­fore cor­rected that; macros/plain/base now con­tains don's lat­est re­lease. see http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Cat­a­logue/en­tries/plain.html 2. ver­sion 3.0 of the ams­fonts bun­dle has been re­leased. this in­cludes re­vised ver­sions of the "ams" fonts, and an up­date of the long- es­tab­lished y&y and blue sky re­search ver­sions of the com­puter mod­ern fonts (for which the ams holds the copy­right). note that rather lit­tle of the ams­fonts doc­u­men­ta­tion has been up­dated for the new ver­sion; the ams are work­ing on that. see http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Cat­a­logue/en­tries/ams­fonts.html that's quite enough ex­cite­ment for one day. now i'll get back to _real_ work.

ams­fonts – fonts from the Amer­i­can Math­e­mat­i­cal So­ci­ety

An ex­tended set of fonts for use in math­e­mat­ics, in­clud­ing: ex­tra math­e­mat­i­cal sym­bols; black­board bold let­ters (up­per­case only); frak­tur let­ters; sub­script sizes of bold math italic and bold Greek let­ters; sub­script sizes of large sym­bols such as sum and prod­uct; added sizes of the Com­puter Modern small caps font; cyril­lic fonts (from the Univer­sity of Wash­ing­ton); Euler math­e­mat­i­cal fonts. All fonts are pro­vided as Adobe Type 1 files, and all ex­cept the Euler fonts are pro­vided as source.

The dis­tri­bu­tion also in­cludes the canon­i­cal Type 1 ver­sions of the Com­puter Modern fam­ily of fonts.

Ba­sic sup­port for the sym­bol fonts is pro­vided by ams­fonts.sty, with names of in­di­vid­ual sym­bols de­fined in amssymb.sty. The Euler fonts are sup­ported by sep­a­rate pack­ages; de­tails can be found in the doc­u­men­ta­tion.
