CTAN Update: cfr-lm

Date: February 3, 2015 12:09:30 PM CET
Clea F. Rees submitted an update to the cfr-lm package. Version number: 1.5 2015-02-01 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Enhanced support for the Latin Modern fonts Announcement text:
Corrected two typos in .fd files and made corresponding changes to typos in source -drv.tex files. In most cases, the changes will have no effect. However, in some cases, the errors might have caused inappropriate font substitutions and could cause compilation failures in unusual circumstances. I found the bug when trying to use beamer + standalone + tikz with externalisation and a particular configuration of cfr-lm. I hope this fixes it.... (I'm still not sure why this is not triggered in other cases, given that it is triggered at all.)
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.
