CTAN Up­date: paratype

Date: Fe­bru­ary 23, 2012 5:46:21 PM CET
On Thu, 23 Feb 2012, Pavel Farar sub­mit­ted an up­date to the paratype pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: LaTeX sup­port for free fonts by ParaType Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
- Added font PT Mono (cur­rently just TrueType for­mat). - My con­verted Type 1 ver­sion of fonts PT Sans and PT Serif is re­placed by Type 1 fonts kindly pro­vided by ParaType. It has two im­por­tant ad­van­tages: First, they are of much higher qual­ity. Se­cond, the dis­tri­bu­tion of the fonts is not lim­ited to TeX. - Added map file paratype-mixed.map that sets Type 1 ver­sion of PT Sans and PT Serif and TrueType ver­sion of PT Mono. It is just tem­po­rary sol­lu­tion be­fore I get Type 1 ver­sion of PT Mono. This map file may dis­ap­pear in fu­ture re­leases of this pack­age. - Added sup­port for faked styles UprightI­talic and Slanted of PT Serif. Re­quested by A. Jan Kuty­lowski. There are no font files con­tain­ing these styles, the styles are gen­er­ated on the fly. There is small in­com­pat­i­bil­ity: In the pre­vi­ous ver­sion of paratype, if you re­quested slanted shape of PT Serif, it was re­placed by italic shape. Now, there is both italic and slanted shape and they are dif­fer­ent. - Re­moved f-lig­a­tures from the TS1 and X2 en­cod­ings. They were set ex­plicitely for all en­cod­ings on the com­mand line, no mat­ter if they were re­ally needed. - The file paratype.sty sets PTMono-TLF as the de­fault monospaced font.
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 .

Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
