On Mon, 4 Apr 2011 Jean-Francois Burnol submitted an update to the mathastext package. Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/mathastext Summary description: Use the text font in simple mathematics License type: lppl Announcement text:
This is release 1.14c + There was a bug with \$, \&, \%, and \# in math mode which could show up when ten or more math families had been assigned. The same bug also affected under the same circumstances the minus sign when Unicode engines were used. Fixed. + I have modified a bit the behavior of the LGRgreek option, and defined a new option LGRgreeks. Idem with selfGreek which now also has a variant selfGreeks (this is related to the behavior accross distinct math versions.) + Bug fix: the \Mathastext macro reinitializes the fonts in the normal and bold math versions, but it also erroneously redeclared the math alphabet changing commands which could have been set up in previously defined math versions (via earlier calls to \Mathastext[version_name]). + Finally, I have tried to clean up a bit some aspects of the implementation.

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).
