CTAN Update: mathastext

On Tue, 1 Feb 2011 Jean-Francois Burnol submitted an update of the 

  mathastext 

package to CTAN.

Summary description: Use the text font in simple mathematics
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The mathastext package propagates the document text font to
mathematical mode, for the letters of the Latin alphabet
and, optionally, other characters in the font. Thus it makes
possible (for a document with simple mathematics) to use a
quite arbitrary text font without worrying too much that no
specially designed accompanying maths fonts are available.
The package also offers a simple mechanism for using many
different choices of (text hence, now, math) font in the
same document. Of course, using one font for two purposes
helps produce smaller PDF files.

CTAN Update: sty2dtx

On Wed, 2 Feb 2011 Martin Scharrer submitted an update to the

  sty2dtx

package.

License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Changelog:
 * Better handling of code comments:
    - Comments direct before a macro or environment definition
      are now placed inside the corresponding 
      description environment before `\begin{macrocode}`.
    - Separate comment lines stay as they are and will be normal
      text in the .DTX file.
    - Commented text inside definitions will cause the `macrocode`
      environment to be interrupted and reopened afterwards.
    - Code lines which are commented out (i.e. are indented and
      there is no space after the '%' sign) will stay as part of
      the macro code.
 * Added '-c' (generate code section only) option. This resembles
   the output of v1.0 and is useful to insert more code into
   exisiting .DTX files.
 * Config files can now include comment lines as well.
   These lines must start with '%' or '#'.

arguments. This update provides major development of
\DeclareCommand, as announced at BachoTeX 2010. May lack
compatibility with previous version to some degree.
