CTAN Update: mathastext

Date: October 1, 2012 7:35:19 AM CEST
On Thu, 27 Sep 2012 Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the mathastext package. Summary description: Use the text font in simple mathematics License type: lppl Announcement text:
The mathastext package automatically (or only locally) changes the document fonts used in math mode for letters and digits (and a few other punctuation and symbol signs) to replace them by the font used for the text. Thus, the package makes it possible to use a quite arbitrary font without worrying too much that it does not have specially designed accompanying math fonts. Also, mathastext provides a simple mechanism in order to use more than one math-as-text font in the same document. + new with 1.15: with the `subdued' option it is possible to let the `mathastextification' act locally in the document. + new with 1.15b: some backward incompatibility introduced by a `feature' of 1.15 is fixed, and the documentation is made clearer.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/mathastext . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/mathastext (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

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).
