Note that the directory contains an extra file lm0982mt1.zip, containing
fonts sources for MetaType1.

 > The Latin Modern family of fonts is based on the Computer Modern fonts
 > in the PostScript Type 1 format, released into public domain by the
 > American Mathematical Society. The fonts, as compared to the CM family,
 > contain a lot of additional characters, mainly accented ones, but not only.
 > The current distribution contains:
 > Latin Modern fonts in the PostScript Type 1 and OpenType formats,
 > source files for MetaType1 plus all requisites for using the fonts with
 > TeX/pdfTeX; there is one set of PostScript fonts and five sets of TeX Font
 > Metric files, corresponding to:
 > -- EC (Cork) encoding (ec-*.tfm),
 > -- QX encoding (qx-*.tfm),
 > -- TeX'n'ANSI aka LY1 encoding (texnansi-*.tfm),
 > -- T5 (Vietnamese) encoding (t5-*.tfm),
 > -- Text Companion for EC fonts aka TS1 (ts1-*.tfm).
 > LaTeX *.sty and *.fd files were also added plus a few test files.
 > Most important recent changes concerned the addition of Vietnamese
 > characters and the dvips support for the substitution for CM, CS, PL,
 > and VN fonts. The current release (version 0.982) was revised and corrected
 > after EuroTeX2005.

Thanks for the upload.
