Summary description: Computer modern mathematical bold font

Announcement text:

Neither the mathbb font of AMS provided by the package of amsfonts or 
amssymb nor the blackboard bold or double stroke fonts provided by 
packages of mathbbold, mathbbol, bbm, mathds and so on are well compatible 
with the Computer Modern font family default in LaTeX because of stroke 
characteristics or line weights. So it may be necessary to create a new 
mathbb font. The new mathbb font was designed by Conden Chao with Adobe 
Illustrator 2018 and FontLab 7 on September 9-15, 2020 and the package was 
created by Saravanan Murugaiah on September 10-15, 2020. We call the new 
mathbb font and the package as cmathbb which is a shorthand for "Computer 
Modern Mathematical Blackboard Bold". The cmathbb font contains all the 
digits, and Latin letters uppercase and lowercase.
