CTAN update: mathastext

Date: August 23, 2018 9:27:56 PM CEST
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the mathastext package. Version number: 1.3t 2018-08-22 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Use the text font in maths mode Announcement text:
This fixes the recent 1.3s bugfix... regarding the compatibility of subdued mode with fontspec. It also fixes a very old bug dating back to 2012 which made mathastext break under pdflatex with a default font encoding other than OT1, T1 or LY1 when attempting to configure the minus sign for math mode. One breaking change: mathastext does not redefine anymore \i and \j to let them be usable both in text and math mode.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/mathastext More information is at https://www.ctan.org/pkg/mathastext

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.
