CTAN update: unitipa

निरंजन submitted an update to the unitipa package. Version: 0.4 2021-10-20 License: gpl3+ fdl Summary description: TIPA typefaces with Unicode characters as input Announcement text:
I have stopped maintaining this package and also taken it back from the distributions as I have realized that it is not ideal to use this package. The only purpose I had in mind while writing this package was to get the visual shapes of TIPA with Unicode characters in the input. This purpose is served very well by the CMU-serif font. Please refer to the file CMU-serif.tex and its output pdf to see the characters that differ visually. They are just 4 which is a very small number and the difference is not very much. I have compared almost all the characters, but commented the ones which show the exact same visual shape. You can uncomment those lines from the source code to test it yourself. I apologize for providing a package that wasn't really producing good results. A comment on StackExchange by an expert user warned me about the use of Computer Modern Unicode font, instead of using T3 encoding, but because of my inexperience in LaTeX I assumed that this font is the default font in every document (which isn't true). I tried compiling a document with the default font i.e. Latin Modern and I couldn't see the characters that I had listed in the package documentation. Therefore I wrote this package. Now that I have come to know about a more modern and recommended way of getting the TIPA shapes in our documents, I am taking this package back. The git repository of this project won't accept issues and MRs henceforth, but the project development and history will still be publicly available in the archived state. Best, निरंजन 2021/10/20

unitipa – TIPA typefaces with Unicode characters as input

A(n obsolete) package which used to provide a Lua based code for converting Unicode IPA input to T3 encoded TIPA typefaces, but it is recommended to use CMU with Xe/Lua instead for a better output.
