On Tue, 1 Feb 2011 Jean-Francois Burnol submitted an update of the 


package to CTAN.

Summary description: Use the text font in simple mathematics
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
The mathastext package propagates the document text font to
mathematical mode, for the letters of the Latin alphabet
and, optionally, other characters in the font. Thus it makes
possible (for a document with simple mathematics) to use a
quite arbitrary text font without worrying too much that no
specially designed accompanying maths fonts are available.
The package also offers a simple mechanism for using many
different choices of (text hence, now, math) font in the
same document. Of course, using one font for two purposes
helps produce smaller PDF files.

This package is located at 
.  More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload.
