* The COMPUTER MODERN BRIGHT family of fonts *
* fonts: v1.0g 2002-05-25 *
* macros v8.1 2005-04-13 *
* There will be no more *basic* changes to the fonts. *
* Extensions and bug fixes may be expected still. *
`Computer Modern Bright' is a family of sans serif fonts for
TeX and LaTeX, based on Donald Knuth's `Computer Modern'.
It comprises OT1, T1 and TS1 encoded text fonts of various
shapes as well as all the fonts necessary for mathematical
typesetting, including the AMS symbols. CM Bright is
accompanied by a matching family of monospaced fonts,
`Computer Modern Typewriter Light'.
This distribution comprises
* the fonts in the Metafont format,
* the TeX font metrics,
* the LaTeX macro package cmbright.sty and the related font
The CM Bright fonts are available in the Type1 format, too.
To install, move all files to the corresponding directories
of your TeX system. In case yor TeX system does not support
the use of fonts in the obsolete Metafont format, omit the
directories fonts/source and doc/fonts.
Documentation regarding the use of the fonts can be found in
the document cmbright.pdf.
Additional documentation regarding the license of the
Metafont sources of the CM-Bright fonts can be found in the
The MF sources of the CM Bright and CM Typewriter Light
fonts are subject to the LPPL; see the files in the
The LaTeX macros to use the CM Bright and CM Typewriter Light
fonts are separately(!) subject to the LPPL, too; see the
notice in the file source/latex/cmbrght/cmbright.dtx.
The fonts are now declared as continuously scalable, so
that arbitrary sizes are supported.
The obsolete hacks regarding the use of \oldstylenums
and \textregistered have been abolished.
When the package is loaded with the option
[slantedGreek], all upright uppercase Greek letters are
made available, too
Bug fix re. default definition of \Gamma.
The package will fix the (La)TeX logos to suit CM-Bright.
The package documentation now acts as a font sample,
Source file cmbright.fdd abolished; all sources are in
the .dtx file now.

be redefined. Same font sizes will always get the same
