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.

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.]
