New features in MTPro2.

Instead of a basic set of fonts, with various supplements, MTPro2 now comes
in either a basic "lite" version, or a complete version, which includes all the
additional features that previously appeared in supplements, including
Times versions of the various AMS symbol fonts, extra large versions of all
large operators, and the various blackboard bold, holey-roman bold, script,
and fractur fonts.

In addition:

1. Italic and bold letters, very similar to those from the Times New Roman
family, have now been designed as part of the fonts, so that virtual fonts
are not necessary, and licensing restrictions are much less onerous.

2. Quite a few new symbols have been added, virtually all that were requested
on the PCTeX font forum, as well as some others that I felt complemented them.
Some of the new symbols have corresponding new large operators (all the new
large operators also have corresponding extra large versions).
Moreover, the large operators \sum, \prod, and \coprod are now available in both
upright versions and slanted versions, for those who prefer that.
Bold and heavy versions of all the new symbols also exist.

3. In addition to the individually designed parentheses, etc., there are now
individually designed curly braces, both vertical (instead of \left\{...\right\})
and horizontal (instead of \underbrace and \overbrace).

4. In addition to the script fonts, there is "curly" font, similar to a type
of script font that has frequently been used in the past, for those who
prefer these versions.

5. Finally, there are now blackboard bold versions of all the slanted letters and numerals,
as well as all the Greek letters, both slanted and upright. Similarly, there are now
holey versions of the bold italic letters and slanted bold numerals, and all the
bold Greek letters, both slanted and upright.

6. Since TeX has a limitation of 16 math "families", trying to use too many
of these fonts in a single document would normally be impossible, so a special
device has been added to circumvent this problem. (It supercedes the so-called
"emergency load" which was previously provided for plain TeX users, but
not implemented for LaTeX.)

Dear sir:

In this forum and your newsletter, the announced new release of MTPro font is version 2, but I learned from 'MTPro Latex user guide' at PCTEX' home page,is that the version is 3. I don't know which is correct.

I am a newbie to use mathtime and MTPro, I want to know whether it is enough to use the 'times' package in LaTeX with your MTPro2(3?)?,if not, would you recommend the least required (commonly used in daily scientific writting) Times New Roman fonts?

Thanks, and your reply is very appreciated.

The current fonts set is version 3 of "MTPro", while the new release will be called
"MTPro II", and version numbering will again start with "1".

\usepackage{times} will do the job
(but the MTPro documentation explains also how this can be optimized further).
