CTAN Update: paratype replaces ptsans and ptserif

Date: May 11, 2011 3:55:12 PM CEST
On Tue, 10 May 2011 Pavel Farar submitted the paratype package, which replaces the package's ptsans and ptserif License type: other-free Announcement text:
This package contains LaTeX support for the fonts PT Sans and PT Serif developed by ParaType for the project "Public Types of Russian Federation", and released under an open user license. The fonts are included in the original TrueType format and converted Type 1 format (as kindly allowed by ParaType). The fonts provide encodings OT1, T1, IL2, TS1, T2* and X2. The version of PT Sans is 2.003, the version of PT Serif is 1.000. They are different and therefore I used the date of the creation of the package as the version for the package "paratype". This package was created by merging package's ptsans and ptserif. It was suggested by Karl Berry, because I was usually updating both package's at the same time and there were similar changes. The fonts are designed to be used together and the maintenance of one package will be easier. LaTeX sources that worked with package ptsans or ptserif should also work with package paratype without any changes. Encoding files, map files, LaTeX files and documentation is now in the directories "paratype" instead of "ptsans" or "ptserif". Other font support files are in the same directories "paratype/ptsans" or "paratype/ptserif" as they were in the package's "ptsans" and "ptserif".
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/fonts/paratype . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/paratype (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html . Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
