stix2-type1 – Type1 versions of the STIX Two OpenType fonts
The stix2 package provides minimal support for using the STIX Two fonts with versions of TeX that are limited to TFM files, Type 1 PostScript fonts, and 8-bit font encodings.
Version 2.0.0 of the STIX fonts are being released in this format in hopes of easing the transition from legacy TeX engines to modern fully Unicode-compatible systems.
The Type 1 versions are merely a repackaging of the original OpenType versions and should not be viewed as independent entities. Some glyphs that are traditionally available in TeX math fonts are not yet available in the STIX Two OpenType fonts. In such cases, we have chosen to omit them from the stix2 package rather than create incompatibilities between the OpenType and Type 1 versions. In addition, while development of the OpenType versions is ongoing, no further updates are planned to the Type 1 versions of the fonts.
