CTAN Update: mathastext

Date: February 7, 2011 11:33:02 PM CET
On Mon, 7 Feb 2011 Jean-Francois Burnol submitted updates to the mathastext package. Summary description: Use the text font in simple mathematics License type: lppl Announcement text:
In version 1.11: * various bugs have been corrected * the endash and alldelims options are active by default * the en-dash and dotless i and j are now compatible with all encodings, including Unicode * the \Mathastext command has been improved to facilitate the mechanism of math versions also when using XeTeX or LuaTeX with package fontspec. Usage: \usepackage{mathastext}. This will propagate the text font to math mode. Version 1.12 corrects some bugs from the recently released version 1.11. And it makes mathastext better aware of Unicode engines and fonts. * The endash and alldelims options are active by default. * The \Mathastext command has been improved to facilitate the * mechanism of math versions also when using XeTeX or LuaTeX * The en-dash and dotless i and j will now work with all 8bit encodings, and also with Unicode fonts.

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).
