 Latin Modern fonts (lm)


Authors: JNSteam
License: GPL
Location on CTAN: fonts/lm

Note that the directory contains an extra file lm0.99.2mt1.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:
1. corrected some bugs in kerning (introduced incidentally in ver. 0.99.1)

2. .map and .enc files were uniformized.

Thanks for the upload.
