Summary description: Martin Vogel's Symbols (marvosym) font
License type: other-free

Announcement text: 

Martin Vogel's Symbol (marvosym) font contains the Euro currency symbol as 
defined by the European commission, and also in shapes to blend with typefaces 
Times, Helvetica and Courier; symbols for structural engineering; symbols for 
steel cross-sections; astronomy signs (sun, moon, planets); the 12 signs of the 
zodiac; scissor symbols; CE sign and others.

The package contains both original TrueType font as well as derived Type 1 and 
support files for TeX (LaTeX).

Changes in this version:
- Fixed licence of TeX support files. Original font is licenced under OFL,
  which prohibits GPL licence. Reorganized documentation, added OFL licence
  texts and this FONTLOG.txt which is sadly missing in original font.
  Thanks to Karl Berry for many useful suggestions and impromevents.
- Added original TTF font.
- Updated to font version 3.10 (2008-09-01).
- Recreated Type 1 font files with some incompatible changes in font metrics,
  some glyphs removed and some newly introduced ones. Created TDS directory
  structure and made LaTeX macros 100 % compatible with original names.
  Old LaTeX names were kept as synonyms.
- AFM file now contains proper glyph names instead of names of
  ASCII characters on those slots.
- Characters `A' and `p' (positions 0xF0 and 0xF1) are no longer present,
  as they are not in the original font.
- Some high school logos were removed or replaced.

Changes on CTAN:
- moved from fonts/psfonts/marvosym to fonts/marvosym
- OzTeX and VTeX support files removed
