> The following information was provided by the package's contributor.
> Name of contribution: cfr-lm
> Author's name: Clea F. Rees
> Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/cfr-lm
> Summary description: Enhanced support for the Latin Modern fonts.
> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> This is a very minor update to ensure that encoding files are
> unique. The map file and manifest.txt are changed accordingly.
> The package supports a number of features of the Latin Modern fonts
> which are not easily accessible via the default (La)TeX support
> provided in the official distribution. In particular, the package
> supports the use of the various styles of digits available, small-caps
> and upright italic shapes, and alternative weights and widths. It
> also supports variable width typewriter and the "quotation"
> font. Version 2.004 of the Latin Modern fonts is supported.
> By default, the package uses proportional oldstyle digits and variable
> width typewriter but this can be changed by passing appropriate
> options to the package. The package also supports using e.g. different
> styles of digits within a document so it is possible to use
> proportional oldstyle digits by default, say, but tabular lining
> digits within a particular table. See the README for details.
> The package requires the official Latin Modern distribution, including
> its (La)TeX support. The package relies on the availability of both
> the fonts themselves and the official font support files. The package
> also makes use of the nfssext-cfr package.
> Only the T1 and TS1 encodings are supported for text fonts. The set up
> of fonts for mathematics is identical to that provided by Latin
