au­toinst: the gen­er­ated style files now use the brand-new mweights pack­age in­stead of re­defin­ing \md­de­fault and \bfde­fault to let the user choose the de­fault medium and bold weights.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/fonts/util­i­ties/fontools . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/fontools (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 .
