Updates for OSX 10.11 El Capitan: cjk-gs-integrate and jfontmaps 20151002.0

Now that OSX 10.11 El Capitan is released and everyone is eagerly updating, in cooperation with the colleagues from the Japanese TeX world we have released new versions of the jfontmaps and cjk-gs-integrate packages. With these two packages in TeX Live, El Capitan users can take advantage of the newly available fonts in the Japanese TeX engines ((u)ptex et al), and directly in Ghostscript.

cjk-ghostscript

For jfontmaps the changes were minimal, Yusuke Terada fixed a mismatch in ttc index numbers for some fonts. Without this fix, Hiragino Interface is used instead of HiraginoSans-W3 and -W6.

On the other hand, cjk-gs-integrate has seen a lot more changes:

  • add support for OSX 10.11 El Capitan provided fonts (by Yusuke Terada)
  • added 2004-{H,V} encodings for Japanese fonts (by Munehiro Yamamoto)
  • fix incorrect link name – this prevented kanji-config-updmap from the jfontmaps package to find and use the linked fonts
  • rename --link-texmflocal to --link-texmf [DIR] with an optional argument
  • add a --remove option to revert the operation – this does clean up completely only if the same set of fonts is found

For more explanations concerning how to run cjk-gs-integrate, please see the dedicated page: CJK fonts and Ghostscript integration.

For feedback and bug reports, please use the github project pages: jfontmaps, cjk-gs-support.

Both packages should arrive in your local TeX Live CTAN repository within a day or two.

We hope that with this users of El Capitan can use their fonts to the full extend.

Enjoy.
