If you have the previous version already, I suggest to compare mtpro2.pdf
with the old mtro.pdf. Main news are:

- extensible curly braces, \ccases
- extensible under- and overbraces
- many additional symbols and operators
- optional slanted \sum and \prod operators
- optional "swashed" z
- additional "Curly" script alphabet
- additional slanted BlackBoard Bold alphabet
- fixed support to use Lucida Calligraphic for \mathcal (LaTeX only)
- many internal fixes and improvements
- one single macro package to support both the lite and the full font set

and finally:
the fonts do no longer inlude any code inherited from Monotype,
so there are no more uncertainties or restrictions re. licensing.

(Mike, Lance: did I forget anything?)

It might be mentioned that there are two versions of the slanted BlackBoard Bold, one like the straight blackboard bold, and one like the
"holey-roman-bold". And in each case, the slanted versions not only have letters from the roman alphabet, but also all the Greek letters, etc. that
are normally on the "math italic" fonts.

[Also, for those few who are using mtp2.tex with plain.tex, rather than
LaTeX, the end of the guide summarizes differences from the old mtp2.tex.]
