At the bottom of the first page of the documentation for the "mtp2lite" package at:

ctan:/fonts/mtp2lite/texmf/doc/fonts/mtpro2/mtpro2.pdf

it is stated that:

This document refers to version v2.1a of the mtpro2 package,
to be used with version 2 of the MathTımeProfessional II fonts.

Now if one go to the fonts themselves in the package:

 ctan:/mtp2lite/texmf/fonts/type1/pctex/mtpro2

ALL of them are labelled "Version 1.00".

So where are the free fonts that are supposed to be used with this package?

  • Ah, the download site still works www2.pctex.com/downloads.php?product=MTP2L May 10 '18 at 4:07
  • @HenriMenke I have been there and downloaded it, and it is not it. The files in there are EAXCTLY the same as the ones in CTAN, and they are all Version1.00.

  • Well, I guess it is version 1.00 of MathTime Professional 2 then, because that is the official source. May 10 '18 at 6:06
  • @HenriMenke, if the phrase was written by a normal-Joe it could easily be taken as a mistake, but in fact, it is authored by Walter Schmidt of long and known experience with math TeX fonts.

It seems that all outlines are still the same as version 1.0, but some .fd files have changed, so this is where the version 2 comes from:

umt2hrb.fd   2009/1/30 v2.2 MathTimePro II Holey Roman Bold (PCTeX/WaS)
umt2ms.fd    2009/1/30 v2.2 MathTimePro II Script (PCTeX/WaS)
umt2hrb.fd   2009/1/30 v2.2 MathTimePro II Holey Roman Bold (PCTeX/WaS)
umt2ms.fd    2009/1/30 v2.2 MathTimePro II Script (PCTeX/WaS)
