CTAN update: mathastext

Date: May 4, 2016 7:36:10 PM CEST
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the mathastext package. Version number: 1.3o 2016-05-03 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Use the text font in maths mode Announcement text:
mathastext fixes an issue related to a feature of LuaLaTeX and luaotfload that OpenType fonts are declared in one of two modes: node and base, and only the latter is functional in math mode. But by default text fonts are declared in mode node. Thus mathastext now intervenes to make it so that the font it declares in math mode will use mode base. This fixes issues with for example old style figures being used while the text font used lining figures (or vice versa, depending on the font). But see the code comments for more.

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).
