CTAN Update: mathastext

Date: August 21, 2019 5:11:01 PM CEST
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the mathastext package. Version: 1.3u 2019-08-20 License: lppl1.3 Summary description: Use the text font in maths mode Announcement text:
New feature: the initial release dealt with only one font, and although shortly thereafter the 1.11 version added support for extended math versions, it was documented that some font-dependent set-up (minus as endash, dotless i and j, hbar, math accents) was done only once. This release makes the relevant characters font encoding savvy in each mathastext-extended math version. Thus, they should render correctly even with multiple math versions using fonts with varying encodings. The implementation is compatible with Unicode engines and mixed usage of TU encoding (OpenType fonts) with traditional 8bits TeX font encodings. For all engines, all used (8bits) encodings must have been passed as options to the fontenc package. Thanks to Falk Hanisch for feature request and code suggestions. See the Change Log section in the PDF documentation for more.

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).
