CTAN Update: mathastext

Date: April 23, 2016 7:14:54 PM CEST
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the mathastext package. Version: 1.3n 2016-04-22 License: lppl1.3 Summary description: Use the text font in maths mode Announcement text:
At long last, mathastext takes care properly of annoying and perplexing amsmath's \newmcodes at . The very recent change in amsopn.sty finally made it compatible with Unicode engines, but anyhow, mathastext must do its own patch to use the correct font. All of this taking into account the various options passed to the package. Lots of trouble for a tiny thing.
The package's Catalogue entry can be viewed at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/mathastext The package's files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/mathastext/ We are supported by the TeX users groups. Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

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).
