CTAN Update: dejavu

Date: September 15, 2011 6:53:06 PM CEST
On Thu, 15 Sep 2011 Pavel Farar submitted an update to the dejavu package. Summary description: LaTeX support for the fonts DejaVu License type: other-free Announcement text:
This package contains LaTeX support for the fonts DejaVu. Changes: - Added extra kerning pairs between the Greek accents and the capital Greek letters for the serif and sans serif families (the monospaced family left unchanged). The kerning values are generated from the fonts (sfd files) and the combination accent + letter should give the same relative position of accent and letter as in the precomposed accented capital Greek letters. Most kerning values are big negative, but there are also several small positive values. - Small changes in the LGR encoding: uni1FBD replaced by uni1FBF and grave replaced by uni1FEF. They have exactly the same glyph, but are more consistent with the Greek alphabet. These should be user invisible changes.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/fonts/dejavu . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/dejavu (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear).

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

dejavu – support for the DejaVu fonts

The package contains support for the DejaVu fonts, which are derived from the Vera fonts but contain more characters and styles.

The fonts are included in the original TrueType format, and in converted Type 1 format.

The (currently) supported encodings are: OT1, T1, IL2, TS1, T2*, X2, QX, and LGR.

The package doesn't (currently) support mathematics. More encodings and/or features are expected.
