On Mon, 15 Aug 2011 Mo­jca Miklavec sub­mit­ted an up­date to the mar­vosym pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Martin Vo­gel's Sym­bols (mar­vosym) font Li­cense type: other-free An­nounce­ment text:
Martin Vo­gel's Sym­bol (mar­vosym) font con­tains the Euro cur­rency sym­bol as de­fined by the Euro­pean com­mis­sion, and also in shapes to blend with type­faces Times, Hel­vetica and Courier; sym­bols for struc­tural en­gi­neer­ing; sym­bols for steel cross-sec­tions; as­tron­omy signs (sun, moon, plan­ets); the 12 signs of the zo­diac; scis­sor sym­bols; CE sign and oth­ers. The pack­age con­tains both orig­i­nal TrueType font as well as de­rived Type 1 and sup­port files for TeX (LaTeX). Changes in this ver­sion: - Fixed li­cence of TeX sup­port files. Orig­i­nal font is li­cenced un­der OFL, which pro­hibits GPL li­cence. Re­or­ga­nized doc­u­men­ta­tion, added OFL li­cence texts and this FONTLOG.txt which is sadly miss­ing in orig­i­nal font. Thanks to Karl Berry for many use­ful sug­ges­tions and im­promevents. - Added orig­i­nal TTF font. - Up­dated to font ver­sion 3.10 (2008-09-01). - Re­cre­ated Type 1 font files with some in­com­pat­i­ble changes in font met­rics, some glyphs re­moved and some newly in­tro­duced ones. Created TDS di­rec­tory struc­ture and made LaTeX macros 100 % com­pat­i­ble with orig­i­nal names. Old LaTeX names were kept as syn­onyms. - AFM file now con­tains proper glyph names in­stead of names of ASCII char­ac­ters on those slots. - Char­ac­ters `A' and `p' (po­si­tions 0xF0 and 0xF1) are no longer present, as they are not in the orig­i­nal font. - Some high school lo­gos were re­moved or re­placed. Changes on CTAN: - moved from fonts/ps­fonts/mar­vosym to fonts/mar­vosym - OzTeX and VTeX sup­port files re­moved
