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 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 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 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.
