CTAN Up­date: ec fonts

Date: Jan­uary 6, 2012 8:40:01 AM CET
On Thu, 5 Jan 2012 Jörg Knap­pen sub­mit­ted an up­date to the ec pack­age. Li­cense type: other-free An­nounce­ment text: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- On re­quest of the Free Soft­ware Foun­da­tion, the li­cence does no longer re­quire that the orig­i­nal ec fonts are dis­tributed to­gether with a changed ver­sion. Note that all other li­cence con­di­tions re­main in­tact, in­clud­ing the con­di­tion that the changed file names nor file names must not start with ec or tc. The new li­cence should sat­isfy the FSF's cri­te­ria for a "free" li­cence. There are no changes to the fonts them­selves. The ver­sion is still 1.0.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/fonts/ec . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/ec (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

ec – Com­puter mod­ern fonts in T1 and TS1 en­cod­ings

The EC fonts are Euro­pean Com­puter Modern Fonts, sup­port­ing the com­plete T1 en­cod­ing de­fined at the 1990 TUG con­fer­ence hold at Cork/Ire­land. Th­ese fonts are in­tended to be sta­ble with no changes be­ing made to the tfm files. The set also con­tains a Text Com­pan­ion Sym­bol font, called tc, fea­tur­ing many use­ful char­ac­ters needed in text type­set­ting, for ex­am­ple old­style dig­its, cur­rency sym­bols (in­clud­ing the newly cre­ated Euro sym­bol), the per­mille sign, copy­right, trade mark and ser­vice­mark as well as a copy­left sign, and many oth­ers. Re­cent re­leases of sup­port the EC fonts. The EC fonts su­per­sede the pre­lim­i­nary ver­sion re­leased as the DC fonts.

The fonts are avail­able in (traced) Adobe Type 1 for­mat, as part of the cm-su­per bun­dle. The other Com­puter Modern-style T1-en­coded Type 1 set, Latin Modern, is not ac­tu­ally a di­rect de­vel­op­ment of the EC set, and dif­fers from the EC in a num­ber of par­tic­u­lars.
