CTAN update: mathastext

Date: November 17, 2019 10:10:01 PM CET
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the mathastext package. Version number: 1.3w 2019-11-16 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Use the text font in maths mode Announcement text:
Hot fix to work around current (and already fixed upstream) problem when LaTeX 2019-10-01 patch level 1-3 is used with amsmath (math accents), which crashed \Mathastext macro at time of defining its own \hbar; related fix to an oversight of previous release which led mathastext \hbar being ignored with recent LaTeX in presence of amsfonts, for example. And finally fix a 1.3u bug with noendash option under Unicode engines.

mathastext – Use the text font in maths mode

The package uses a text font (usually the document’s text font) for the letters of the Latin alphabet needed when typesetting mathematics. (Optionally, other characters in the font may also be used). This facility makes possible (for a document with simple mathematics) a far wider choice of text font, with little worry that no specially designed accompanying maths fonts are available. The package also offers a simple mechanism for using many different choices of (text hence, now, maths) font in the same document. Of course, using one font for two purposes helps produce smaller PDF files.

The package, if running under Lua, requires the live 2013 distribution (or later).
