CTAN Update: mathastext

Date: October 29, 2012 11:30:25 AM CET
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the mathastext package. Summary description: Use the text font in math mode License type: lppl Announcement text:
1.15f [2012/10/25] * \$, \#, \&, and \% had been re-defined by mathastext since its inception in a rather strange (but working) way, which could cause surprises to other packages. Fixed. * The subdued mechanism for the math alphabets is implemented in a simpler and more efficient manner than in 1.15e. * The `defaultxx' options act a bit differently, and are more useful in case of a `too many math alphabets' situation. * Various improvements in the documentation. * General clean up and better commenting of the source code.

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

mathastext – Use the text font in maths mode

The package uses a text font (usually the document’s text font) for the letters of the Latin alphabet needed when typesetting mathematics. (Optionally, other characters in the font may also be used). This facility makes possible (for a document with simple mathematics) a far wider choice of text font, with little worry that no specially designed accompanying maths fonts are available. The package also offers a simple mechanism for using many different choices of (text hence, now, maths) font in the same document. Of course, using one font for two purposes helps produce smaller PDF files.

The package, if running under Lua, requires the live 2013 distribution (or later).
