CTAN Update: gentium-tug

Date: July 12, 2019 8:05:50 AM CEST
Karl Berry submitted an update to the gentium-tug package. Version: 1.1.1 2019-07-09 License: ofl other-free Summary description: Gentium fonts (in two formats) and support files Announcement text:
This update to the gentium-tug package changes only the lgr-gentiumplus-regular.tfm and lgr-gentiumplus-italic.tfm metric files. Now, as expected for the LGR encoding, a sigma at the end of a word, or followed by punctuation, will be automatically changed (via the TeX/MF ligature mechanism) to a final sigma. All the pfb/ttf/etc. files, and all the other metric files, are unchanged. The documentation is slightly updated. Big thanks to Ralf Stubner for suggesting and then implementing this! The major addition in this gentium-tug TeX package remains Type 1 fonts corresponding to the TrueType originals. These incorporate the name "Gentium" by permission of SIL given to the TeX Users Group. The package also includes support files for LaTeX and ConTeXt, and TeX-specific documentation discussing the supported encodings, etc. The home page for gentium-tug is https://tug.org/gentium.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/gentium-tug The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/fonts/gentium-tug/
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese
