CTAN Update mathastext

Date: December 23, 2012 4:14:03 PM CET
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the mathastext package. Summary description: Use the text font in math mode License type: lppl Announcement text:
* A new command sets up the amount of space to be automatically inserted before the derivative glyph (useful when using an upright font). * The scope of the math alphabets has been extended to apply to the non-alphabetical characters, and also to operator names. In usual math mode $\mathbf{(\sin(n!)<\cos(x)?)}$ changes only the font for n and x. With mathastext and if not told otherwise, /everything/ in the formula above will respond to \mathbf (and the automatic spaces are left untouched). * The documentation has been improved. The package file is self-extracting from the dtx, and four additional test files are also produced during `latex mathastext.dtx'.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/mathastext . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/mathastext (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 .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

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).
