It comprises OT1, T1 and TS1 encoded text fonts of various shapes as well as all the fonts necessary for mathematical typesetting, including the AMS symbols. CM Bright is accompanied by a matching family of monospaced fonts, `Computer Modern Typewriter Light'. This distribution comprises * the fonts in the Metafont format, * the TeX font metrics, * the LaTeX macro package cmbright.sty and the related font definition files The CM Bright fonts are available in the Type1 format, too. See <http://www.micropress-inc.com/fonts/brmath/brmain.htm>. To install, move all files to the corresponding directories of your TeX system. In case yor TeX system does not support the use of fonts in the obsolete Metafont format, omit the directories fonts/source and doc/fonts. Documentation regarding the use of the fonts can be found in the document cmbright.pdf. Additional documentation regarding the license of the Metafont sources of the CM-Bright fonts can be found in the directory texmf/doc/fonts/cmbright. License ======= The MF sources of the CM Bright and CM Typewriter Light fonts are subject to the LPPL; see the files in the directory doc/fonts/cmbright. The LaTeX macros to use the CM Bright and CM Typewriter Light fonts are separately(!) subject to the LPPL, too; see the notice in the file source/latex/cmbrght/cmbright.dtx. History ======= *** 2005-04-13** The fonts are now declared as continuously scalable, so that arbitrary sizes are supported. The obsolete hacks regarding the use of \oldstylenums and \textregistered have been abolished. When the package is loaded with the option [slantedGreek], all upright uppercase Greek letters are made available, too Bug fix re. default definition of \Gamma. The package will fix the (La)TeX logos to suit CM-Bright. The package documentation now acts as a font sample, too. Source file cmbright.fdd abolished; all sources are in the .dtx file now. Distribution rearranged \`a la TDS. *** 2002-05-25 *** Fixed tbsymb.mf and all TFM's of the TC Bright fonts, which had wong \fontdimen's; notice that the the font shapes are unchanged! Documentation (cmbright.dtx) cleaned up. *** 2002-05-11 *** fixed cmbr8.tfm cmbr9.tfm cmbrmb10.tfm cmbrmi8.tfm cmbrmi9.tfm cmbrsl8.tfm cmbrsl9.tfm; TFMs are no longer mentioned in manifest.txt *** 2000-06-30 *** cmbright v7.1: Bug fix. Loading amsfonts.sty with the option [psamsfonts] would use the `roman' AMS fonts instead of the `Bright' ones. Improved documentation. *** 2000-02-09 *** fonts v1.0f: Fixed all Euro symbols. *** 1999-05-12 *** documentation revisited and reorganized *** 1999-03-28 *** cmbright.sty v6.9: new option [slantedGreek]; *** 1998-12-11 *** cmbright.sty v6.7: Fixed the math font setup, so that \mathbold acts on lowercase greek, too. fonts v1.0e: improved Euro symbol (the metrics remain unchanged!) *** 1998-02-02 *** fd files v7.3: font sizes 29.86 and 35.83 pt suppported *** 1998-01-19 *** Fixed cmbright.ins to prevent problems with Unix (teTeX): Do not generate uppercase filenames automatically. cmbright.ins now TDS-enabled. Added oinst.ins for LaTeX < Dec.1996. *** 1997-09-11 *** cmbright.sty v6.6: added \relax after \ProcessOptions, removed spurious spaces in font definitions fd files v7.2: forced \hyphenchar\font45 in OT1 fonts, removed spurious spaces in font definitions included the new installation script, which was erroneously lacking in the previous distribution :-( *** 1997-06-03 *** fixed a bug in the installation script: the fd files are now generated with mixed-case names if necessary (i.e. when running an obsolete LaTeX release on Unix) fonts, v1.0d: corrected height of arithmetic symbols in T1/TS1 fonts; *** 1997-05-26 *** Fonts, v1.0c: changed lowercase hachek accent in order to avoid METAFONT errors occurring with certain MF modes; fixed `root' symbol and big circles in TS1 fonts; corrected rule_width# in semibold fonts, which had been larger than it is in the bx fonts; *** 1997/05/22 *** fd files v7.0: lowercase filenames fonts v1.0b: br17pt.mf fixed (o#, apex_o#) cmbright.sty v6.4: minor fixes enhanced documentation *** 1996/11/20 *** Documentation update only, e-mail address added. *** 1996/07/02 *** cmbright.sty, v6.2: The code for selecting font size and \baselineskip has been basically changed. The default font sizes defined in the class file will no longer be changed. The size macros like \normalsize will no longer be redefined. Same font sizes will always get the same leading: size \baselineskip 8pt 10.00pt 9pt 11.25pt 10pt 12.50pt 11pt 13.70pt 12pt 15.00pt A new option [standard-baselineskips] enables you to suppress the enlarged \baseselineskip values. The commands \textregistered, \pounds, \textsterling and \mathsterling have been made working; they will use the roman text font. font definition files, v6.0: In all .fd files octal numbers have been changed to decimal ones, in order to avoid conflicts with possibly active quote characters. fonts, v1.0: erroneous comments fixed *** 1996/05/02 *** fonts: version 1.0 font definition files: 5.0 LaTeX package `cmbright': 5.0 The first `final' release, including the AMS fonts. %% finis

cmbright – Computer Modern Bright fonts
A family of sans serif fonts for TeX and LaTeX, based on Donald Knuth’s CM fonts. It comprises OT1, T1 and TS1 encoded text fonts of various shapes as well as all the fonts necessary for mathematical typesetting, including AMS symbols. This collection provides all the necessary files for using the fonts with LaTeX.
A commercial-quality Adobe Type 1 version of these fonts is available from Micropress. Free versions are available, in the cm-super font bundle (the T1 and TS1 encoded part of the set), and in the hfbright package (the OT1 encoded part, and the maths fonts).
