CTAN Update: Arphic font packages
The four bundles contain revised versions of the four Arphic fonts bundles for simplified and traditional Chinese, as used in the CJK package for LaTeX. It fixes omissions of some vertical glyph representation forms, improves the TFM metrics (however, the widths stay unchanged), and provides smaller PFB subfont files due to a newer version of FontForge used in the conversion process.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/fonts/arphic . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=arphic (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html . _______________________________________________ Thanks for the upload.

arphic – Arphic (Chinese) font packages
These are font bundles for the Chinese Arphic fonts which work with the CJK package.
TrueType versions of these fonts for use with XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX are provided by the arphic-ttf package.
Arphic is actually the name of the company which created these fonts (and put them under a GPL-like licence).
