Changes in version 2.0
This is a complete reworking of the package making it into an enhanced add-on to newtxmath. It is assumed that the text package is constructed from the Opentype MinionPro fonts, version 2.0 or higher, using Sebastian Schubert's FontPro software to create the MinionPro package. This  package contains the interface elements that permits the newtx math fonts to be used instead of those built-into the MinionPro package.

Changes in version 1.061
Small changes to optional minion2pro.sty file and to documentation.

Changes in version 1.06
Modified zmnmia and zmnbmia to add varkappa in italic and upright shapes, not requiring the AMS fonts or their substitutes.

Changes in version 1.05
Regenerated zmnmia and zmnbmia in line with changes to ntxmia and ntxbmia, providing bigdelims option as well as timesmathacc option.

Changes in version 1.04
1. Revised description for generating zmn*.pfb, due to cfftot1 in this case not creating type1 fonts compatible with those generated by FontForge.
2. Revised metric files, in view of 1.

Changes in version 1.03
1. Resolved problem in script creating zmn*.pfb.
2. Brought MathItalicA into conformity with other newtx addons. Newtxmath, version 1.15 or higher, is required.

Changes in version 1.02
1. Substantial changes to documentation and simpler conversion procedures.

Changes in version 1.01
1. Provided expanded symbolsA font.

1. You must have in your possession Version 2 or later of MinionPro-Regular.otf, MinionPro-Bold.otf, MinionPro-It.otf and MinionPro-BoldIt.otf.

2. The map file zmn.map must be enabled before using the option 'minion' with newtxmath.


Mac OS X: To install, open a Terminal window and cd to inside the downloaded TDS folder.

Method A (recommended): type

sudo cp -Rfp * /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local


sudo mktexlsr


sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map=zmn.map

Method B: If you insist on making your font installations in your home folder, potentially making your personal installation become out of sync with updates to TeXLive, use instead

(i) if you checked Update for All Users in TeXLive utility

cp -Rfp * ~/Library/texmf


updmap --enable Map=zmn.map

(ii) otherwise

cp -Rfp * ~/Library/texmf


sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=zmn.map

Linux: Very similar to Mac OS X.

MikTeX: Copy the newtxTDS.zip to the root of the folder you use for personal additions to the TeX trees, open a command window, chdir to that folder, and type

unzip newtxtds
initexmf --update-fndb
initexmf --edit-config-file updmap

The latter command should open updmap.cfg in your default editor, commonly Notepad. Add the line 

Map zmn.map 

to updmap.cfg, save and close. Then, in the command window, type

initexmf --mkmaps

You can ignore error messages that may occur here. This should result in a properly enabled zmn.
