Michael Sharpe sub­mit­ted an up­date to the newtx pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 1.4 Li­cense type: lp­pl1.3 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Al­ter­na­tive uses of the TX fonts, with im­proved met­rics. An­nounce­ment text:
With ver­sion 1.4, the text fonts have been re­worked so as not to have any de­pen­dence on the tx­fonts pack­age, but draw upon the richer TeXGyre Ter­mes fonts. With newtx­text, you have ac­cess to all fig­ure style in TGTer­mes, plus ex­panded su­pe­rior fig­ures and let­ters in all style. The fonts have been re­worked to add a new, larger, small caps, avail­able as an op­tion to newtx­text.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/fonts/newtx More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/newtx 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 Man­fred Lotz

newtx – Al­ter­na­tive uses of the TX fonts, with im­proved met­rics

The bun­dle splits tx­fonts.sty (from the TX fonts dis­tri­bu­tion) into two in­de­pen­dent pack­ages, newtx­text.sty and newtx­math.sty, each with fixes and en­hance­ments.

newtx­math’s met­rics have been re-eval­u­ated to pro­vide a less tight ap­pear­ance, and to pro­vide a lib­er­tine op­tion that sub­sti­tutes Lib­er­tine italic and Greek let­ter for the ex­ist­ing math italic and Greek glyphs, mak­ing a math­e­mat­ics pack­age that matches Lib­er­tine text quite well.

newtx­math can also use the maths italic font pro­vided with the gara­mondx pack­age, thus of­fer­ing a gara­mond-alike text-with-maths com­bi­na­tion.
