On Tue, 9 Aug 2011 Pavel Farar submitted the dejavu package. Summary description: LaTeX support for the fonts DejaVu License type: other-free
This package contains LaTeX support for the fonts DejaVu. They are derived from the Vera fonts and contain more characters and styles. The fonts are included in the original TrueType format and converted Type 1 format. The (currently) supported encodings are: OT1, T1, IL2, TS1, T2* and X2. The package (currently) supports neither Greek nor math. More encodings and/or features will come later. The fonts are licensed under the Vera and Arev licenses, DejaVu changes are in the public domain. All the support files are released under the LaTeX Project Public License, either version 1.3 of this license or (at your option) any later version. The files released under the LaTeX Project Public License are listed in manifest.txt. The main reason why I created this package is that I am not satisfied with the Arev and Bera package's for the Czech language, but some problems are not just Czech-related. Moreover, you get more characters and styles. Documentation: README, dejavu.pdf (package documentation), dejavu-sample.pdf (font samples) Related package's: arev, bera
