CTAN Update: mathastext

Date: March 23, 2011 7:02:59 PM CET
On Tue, 22 Mar 2011 Jean-Francois Burnol submitted an update to the mathastext package. Summary description: Use the text font in simple mathematics License type: lppl Announcement text:
Previous versions modified solely \mathnormal, \mathrm and \mathbf. The new release also links \mathit, \mathsf and \mathtt to the document text fonts (at the time of loading the package or at each call to the macro \Mathastext when it is used for defining math-as-text versions). In its current state, mathastext can thus be seen as providing a somewhat complete generic math support for Latin text fonts provided without one.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/mathastext . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/mathastext (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. 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).
