release of AMSFonts in PostScript format

The American Math Society is pleased to announce the release, for free
and unrestricted use, the Type-1 (PostScript) versions of the AMSFonts.
This collection includes the Euler, ``extra symbol'' and cyrillic fonts
in selected sizes.

These fonts, produced by Blue Sky Research, of Portland, Oregon, and
Y&Y Inc., of Concord, Massachusetts, and previously distributed by them,
are made available through the cooperation of a consortium of scientific
publishers along with Blue Sky and Y&Y.  Members of this consortium include:

    Elsevier Science
    IBM Corporation
    Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)
    American Mathematical Society (AMS)

In order to assure the authenticity of these fonts, copyright will be
held by the AMS.  This is not meant to restrict in any way the legitimate
use of the fonts.  However, the AMS does require that the AMS copyright
notice be removed from any derivative versions of the fonts which have
been altered in any way.  A more detailed statement of these requirements
can be found at the AMS Web site, .

The canonical versions of these fonts are located on the AMS FTP server
and are also accessible via the Web:

Four system-specific packages are available from the AMS site:

CTAN submission -- concmath fonts

I have uploaded two files to

(1) concmath-fonts.tar.gz

This file unpacks into fonts/concmath and includes a new release of
the Concrete Math fonts that were derived from the Concrete Roman
fonts designed by Don Knuth.  It is intended to replace the original
contents of CTAN:fonts/concmath.

Changes compared to the original release of the `concmath' fonts
as of February 1995 include:

 - new font shapes added: xccex[7-9], xccam[5-9], xccbm[5-9]

 - bug fixes: `math_fitting:=true' for all sizes of xccmi, xccsy

 - updates: parameters of xccmi, xccsy, xccex, etc. corrected 
   to reflect the latest official version of Knuth's ccr fonts

Warning: The bug fix regarding `math_fitting:=true' unfortunately
implies a change of font metrics for xccmi[5-8] and xccsy[5-8].
Hopefully, after this bug fix there should no need to change these
font metrics ever again.

(2) concmath-latex.tar.gz

This file unpacks into macros/latex/contrib/supported/concmath and
includes a new release of the `concmath' LaTeX package and the
corresponding font definition files.  This is now a fully documented
