CTAN update: drm

Date: September 26, 2014 6:45:54 AM CEST
Donald P. Goodman submitted an update to the drm package. Version number: 2.2 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: A complete family of fonts written in Metafont. Announcement text:
Version 2.2, submitted to CTAN on 24 September 2014, contained some significant changes. Some kerning fixes; the introduction of a short-tailed "Q" in the roman fonts, accessed via \drmshortq; and the introduction of superior and inferior figures, the former being the default (unless |nodefault| or |notextdefault| is selected) for footnote numbering. Did the usual kerning tweaks. Finally, I fixed the acute and grave accents, which in a number of cases were inexplicably backwards.

drm – A complete family of fonts written in

The package provides access to the DRM (Don's Revised Modern) family of fonts, which includes a variety of optical sizes in Roman (in four weights), italic, and small caps, among other shapes, along with a set of symbols and ornaments. It is intended to be a full-body text font, but its larger sizes can also be used for simple display purposes, and its significant body of symbols can stand on its own. It comes complete with textual (“old-style”) and lining figures, and even has small-caps figures. It also comes with extensible decorative rules to be used with ornaments from itself or other fonts, along with an extremely flexible ellipsis package.
