CTAN update: aurical

Date: April 18, 2006 2:40:13 PM CEST
On Sun, 9 Apr 2006, Christian Gollwitzer submitted an update to the aurical package. Location on CTAN: /fonts/aurical Summary description: Update of aurical: Two additional calligraphic fonts License type: lppl Announcement text: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a major upgrade of the package aurical. In addition to improvements of the kerning tables and some glyphs of AuriocusKalligraphicus, two new calligraphic fonts have been added: * LukasSvatba resembles a 16th century handwritten Bastarda. It has a variant with a long s for mediaeval writing. * JanaSkrivana is an elegant cursive handwriting font with strong variations of the stroke width. All three fonts cover the whole glyphset of the Cork/T1 encoding. Installation is now made easy by a single zip archive, that can be extracted directly into the TEXMFLOCAL directory.
Thanks for the update. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
