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
