CTAN Update: cfr-lm

Date: March 4, 2014 5:46:29 PM CET
Clea F. Rees submitted an update to the cfr-lm package. Version number: 1.4 License type: lppl Summary description: Enhanced support for the Latin Modern fonts Announcement text:
Adds experimental support for family-specific settings if microtype is used. More specifically, defines aliases for all roman and sans families, including quotation sans, which should load the settings defined for Computer Modern Roman. This follows the config for Latin Modern as far as roman is concerned. It extends the support so far as sans is concerned in accordance with the discussion at http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/75440/39222. I'm not sure I've done this correctly but I don't think it should break anything. (That is, I don't think the results will be worse than with version 1.3 and hope they will be better.) Should stuff break, the relevant code is in a block at the end of cfr-lm.sty so that it can be easily disabled. Should you find this fact to your advantage, do please let me know.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/fonts/cfr-lm/ More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/cfr-lm 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 Petra Rübe-Pugliese

cfr-lm – Enhanced support for the Latin Modern fonts

The package supports a number of features of the Latin Modern fonts which are not easily accessible via the default support provided in the official distribution. In particular, the package supports the use of the various styles of digits available, small-caps and upright italic shapes, and alternative weights and widths. It also supports variable width typewriter and the “quotation” font. Version 2.004 of the Latin Modern fonts is supported.

By default, the package uses proportional oldstyle digits and variable width typewriter but this can be changed by passing appropriate options to the package. The package also supports using (for example) different styles of digits within a document so it is possible to use proportional oldstyle digits by default, say, but tabular lining digits within a particular table.

The package requires the official Latin Modern distribution, including its support. The package relies on the availability of both the fonts themselves and the official font support files. The package also makes use of the nfssext-cfr package.

Only the T1 and TS1 encodings are supported for text fonts. The set up of fonts for mathematics is identical to that provided by Latin Modern.
