Announcement text:

 > The collection is arranged à la TDS now, and it comes with ready-made
 > documentation in PDF format, which acts as a font sample, too.
 > While the fonts are unchanged over version 7, the following fixes and 
 > changes have been applied to the LaTeX macros:
 > * 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. (Credits to Olaf Dietrich 
 > for having spotted this long-standing bug!)
 > * The package will fix the (La)TeX logos to suit CM-Bright.
 > * Source file cmbright.fdd abolished; all sources are in the .dtx file 
 > now.

Thanks for the update.
