# New on CTAN: unicode-math

the daemon perks up with the appearance of the following (which he had
previously imagined to be a myth concocted by people on the net):

have a good one!
i have installed the package and created an entry in the catalogue
repository.

though, of course, the catalogue entry won't appear on the web until
some time tonight.

## unicode-math – Unicode mathematics support for XeTeX and LuaTeX

This package will provide a complete implementation of unicode maths for XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX.

Unicode maths is currently supported by the following freely available fonts:

- Latin Modern Math (Bogusław Jackowski, Janusz M. Nowacki),
- TeX Gyre Bonum Math (Bogusław Jackowski, , P. Strzelczyk, Janusz M. Nowacki),
- TeX Gyre Pagella Math (Bogusław Jackowski, , P. Strzelczyk, Janusz M. Nowacki),
- TeX Gyre Schola Math (Bogusław Jackowski, P. Strzelczyk, Janusz M. Nowacki),
- TeX Gyre Termes Math (Bogusław Jackowski, P. Strzelczyk, Janusz M. Nowacki),
- DejaVu Math TeX Gyre (Bogusław Jackowski, P. Strzelczyk, Janusz M. Nowacki),
- Asana-Math fonts (Apostolos Syropolous),
- STIX (STI Pub),
- XITS Math (Khaled Hosny),
- Libertinus Math (Philipp H. Poll and Khaled Hosny), and
- Fira Math (Xiangdong Zeng).

The following fonts are proprietary with OpenType maths support:

- Lucida Bright Math (Charles Bigelow and Kris Holmes),
- Cambria Math (Microsoft),
- Minion Math (Johannes Küster, typoma GmbH).

As well as running XeTeX or LuaTeX, this package requires
recent versions of the
fontspec,
expl3,
`xpackages`,
ucharcat and
lualatex-math packages.
