----- Forwarded message from Walter Schmidt ----- I have uploaded the file eurosans.zip to the /incoming directory at dante.ctan.org. Please, unpack it to fonts/euro/latex/eurosans/, thus replacing the existent files eurosans.sty and README.eurosans. This is version 3.0 of the eurosans package for LaTeX, supporting the use the Adobe Euro symbol fonts. As compared with the previous release, the Euro fonts can now be scaled in order to blend with the other typefaces in the document. ----- End forwarded message ----- Thanks for the upload. I installed it as suggested in CTAN:/tex-archive//fonts/euro/latex/eurosans replacing the old version. Reinhard Zierke for the CTAN team

eurosans – Interface to Adobe’s sans-serif Euro font

Provides a convenient interface for using Adobe’s freely available Type 1 Euro fonts. Loading the package defines a new command \euro which typesets a Euro symbol. The symbol is always taken from the ‘EuroSans’ family, with the weight (medium or boldface) and shape (normal or oblique) varying according to the font currently selected. This Euro symbol meets the official design and matches most font families well enough, except for typewriter fonts.

The fonts themselves are only available from Adobe (though the fonts are free of charge, the licence conditions prevent CTAN from distributing them). Metrics and maps for using the fonts (at all) are available via the adobe-euro package.
