This work consists of all files listed in manifest.txt.
All TeX Font Metric files (suffix .tfm in subdirectory fonts/tfm),
Virtual Fonts (suffix .vf in subdirectory fonts/vf) etc. are
derived from the relevant Latin Modern fonts, version 2.004,
released by GUST and available from
http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/latin-modern. The TFM and
VF files are derived specifically from the Adobe Font Metric (suffix
.afm) and TeX Font Metric (suffix .tfm) files supplied with the
postscript type 1 version of the fonts.
The encoding t1-clm.etx is derived from the file t1.etx supplied with
fontinst. A copy of fontinst including an unmodified copy of t1.etx is
available from http://mirror.ctan.org/fonts/utilities/fontinst.
Warning - Experimental
When I first released this package onto an unsuspecting (and largely
uninterested) world, I included the following warning:
This package is EXPERIMENTAL. I have never released any kind of
software before. I know nothing about it. I have tested this
package on every system I can - that is, on one machine running
one OS. Mine. It works for me. I've been using this package as
my primary font package for months and it has worked fine. But
it may not work for you. Although I am pretty sure it won't run
off with your savings - a fact possibly worth mentioning in the
current climate - or sit around drinking your coffee and raiding
your fridge, it will not surprise me if it just doesn't work. If
it doesn't work, please let me know what goes wrong as I would
like to fix it if I can. That's a big if, though, so if you know
how to fix it, telling me that would be even better.
This version of the package has benefited greatly from feedback
provided by Enrico Gregorio, who essentially rewrote the style file
using keyval to show me how I ought to be setting the various options
up, and Lars Hellström who demonstrated considerable patience in
answering my many questions about using fontinst and some peculiarities
of the Latin Modern fonts.
Nonetheless, would-be users should bear the above warning in mind.
Although I trust the package enough for it to be my default font
package for most purposes, it does not mean you should. You should
examine the output especially carefully if you typeset accented
characters, especially those which do not occur in English or Welsh
text as these are the only languages I typeset more than a word or two
of once in a blue moon.
Moreover, version 1.4 adds experimental support for microtype. While this
should work fine since it basically uses the settings for Latin Modern and
Computer Modern Roman, I'm far from confident about this.

cfr-lm – Enhanced support for the Latin Modern fonts
The package supports a number of features of the Latin Modern
fonts which are not easily accessible via the default (La)TeX
support provided in the official distribution. In particular, the
package supports the use of the various styles of digits
available, small-caps and upright italic shapes, and alternative
weights and widths. It also supports variable width typewriter and
the “quotation” font. Version 2.004 of the Latin
Modern fonts is supported.
By default, the package uses proportional oldstyle digits and
variable width typewriter but this can be changed by passing
appropriate options to the package. The package also supports
using (for example) different styles of digits within a document
so it is possible to use proportional oldstyle digits by default,
say, but tabular lining digits within a particular table.
The package requires the official Latin Modern distribution,
including its (La
X support. The package relies on the
availability of both the fonts themselves and the official font
support files. The package also makes use of the
Only the T1 and TS1 encodings are supported for text fonts. The
set up of fonts for mathematics is identical to that provided by
