CTAN package update: antomega, cm-lgc, grkfinst, ofntinst
Date: May 10, 2005 4:44:47 PM CEST
The packages described below have been updated on tug.ctan.org and should
make it to your favorite mirror real, real soon.
Thanks for the updates,
This is the update message from the package maintainer:
I have just uploaded to tug.ctan.org/incoming new
versions of my 4 packages, namely antomega v. 0.8,
cm-lgc v. 0.5, ofntinst 0.2.2 and grkfinst 0.3.2.
Please update the corresponding directories on CTAN
(antomega is installed into systems/omega/contrib/antomega/,
cm-lgc into fonts/ps-type1/cm-lgc/, and my fontinst
packages into fonts/utilities/fontinst-contrib/).
Note that cm-lgc 0.5 is a major new release, with
a lot of new features added (the full list of enhancements
is available in the HISTORY file inside the package).
Antomega 0.8 is a great step to a really stable version,
and, although I continue a sequential version numbering,
it may be considered a major new release too. The
following new features are most important ones:
- -- added (experimental) support files for new languages
(Spanish and Latin);
- -- added special options allowing to use antomega with
Scientific Word/Scientific Workplace;
- -- added a concept of Unicode-based encoding definitions,
so that standard encoding description files (like t1enc.def)
are no longer used by antomega;
- -- new concept of handling TeX accents and Unicode combining
accent marks is introduced, allowing to workaround the known
Omega problem. In Omega the \accent command may produce correct
results only if its second argument is given in document's
output encoding; but this is no longer a problem for antomega.
- -- Greek hyphenation patterns updated.
Thanks in advance,
antomega – Alternative language support for Omega/Lambda
A language support package for Omega/Lambda.
This replaces the original omega package for use with Lambda, and
provides extra facilities (including
Babel-like language switching, which
eases porting of LaTeX documents to Lambda).
