CTAN Update: mathastext

Date: January 4, 2013 12:14:45 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:
1.2d [2013/01/02] * an incompatibility with amsmath (its macro \resetMathstrut@), exists since version 1.2 of the package. This is fixed here. * various improvements in dealing with the asterisk and in the mechanism of letting non-letter symbols obey the math alphabet commands. * documentation extended and improved. * mathastext now inserts automatically after all (latin) letters in math mode their italic corrections, if the font used is upright (sic). This improves the spacings for the positioning of subscripts. The feature is de-activated inside the math alphabets commands (apart from \mathnormal), so as to not prohibit the formation of ligatures, * the documentation has been extended to explain in detail the issues which are relevant to the new feature of added italic corrections, * version 1.2 had some bad bugs when confronted to active characters. This is corrected and additionally \MTnonletters- -donotobeymathxx is made the default, as the user input is too much constrained in its absence. * a less fatal, but still annoying, typo had made the dot in 1.2 of type \mathpunct rather than \mathord * the inner namespace has been rationalized a bit.

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).
