```Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the

mathastext

package.

Summary description: Use the text font in math mode

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1.2d [2013/01/02]

*  an incompatibility with amsmath (its macro \resetMathstrut@),
exists since version 1.2 of the package. This is fixed
here.

*  various improvements in dealing with the asterisk and in the
mechanism of letting non-letter symbols obey the math alphabet
commands.

*  documentation extended and improved.

*  mathastext now inserts automatically after all (latin)
letters in math mode their italic corrections, if the font
used is upright (sic). This improves the spacings for the
positioning of subscripts. The feature is de-activated
inside the math alphabets commands (apart from \mathnormal),
so as to not prohibit the formation of ligatures,

*  the documentation has been extended to explain in detail the
issues which are relevant to the new feature of added italic
corrections,

characters. This is corrected and additionally \MTnonletters-
-donotobeymathxx is made the default, as the user input is too
much constrained in its absence.

*  a less fatal, but still annoying, typo had made the dot in 1.2
of type \mathpunct rather than \mathord

*  the inner namespace has been rationalized a bit.
