Summary description: Greek letters in math mode from Libertinus or Linux 

Announcement text:

1.1 2022/11/11

This package allows to set the Greek letters in math mode
to use the glyphs from the Libertinus Serif or Sans font,
via support files for type1 provided by the libertinus-type1
package of Bob Tennent.  All Greek letters are defined both
in \...up and \...it variants.  The style (ISO, TeX, or
French i.e. upright) can be modified midway in the document.

For a complete math solution, see rather libertinust1math.

The initial 2011 release was set-up to use font files mapping
to Linux Libertine or Biolinum, but the libertine-legacy
package providing this has been obsolete for some years, and
as a result this package was broken on new installations.

The 2022 release has switched to using libertinus-type1 as it
provides LGR-encoded fonts.  The package will detect if
libertine-legacy is present and will fall-back to the
`legacy' code to ensure exact backwards compatibility for old
documents on old systems.
