The Cochineal Font Package
--------------------------

Cochineal is a fork from the Crimson fonts (Roman, Italic, Bold, BoldItalic only) released under the OFL by Sebastian Kosch. These remarkable fonts are inspired by the famous oldstyle fonts in the garalde family (Garamond, Bembo) but, in the end, look more similar to Minion, though with smaller xheight and less plain in detail. The Crimson fonts on which these were based had roughly 4200 glyphs in the four styles mentioned above. Cochineal adds more than 1500 glyphs in those styles so that it is possible to make a TeX support collection that contains essentially all glyphs in all styles. Bringing the Semibold styles up the same level would have required adding about 2000 additional glyphs, which I could not even contemplate.

The fonts are provided in OpenType and PostScript formats. As with Crimson, they are released under SIL's OFL, details of which are spelled out in the file OFL.txt accompanying the package.

Current version: 1.042 2017-03-10

Changes in version 1.042
Modified the sty file so that Cochineal text figure styles are selected always in the \AtEndPreamble hook. (Formerly, using babel would prevent this.)

Changes in version 1.041
Added two entries to smcp table so that dotlessi and dotlessj map to correct small cap glyph.

Changes in version 1.04
Small modifications to sizes to provide better match across styles.

Changes in version 1.03:
1. Some modifications to a number of glyphs, spacing and kerning.
2. Added uni2016---required for some footnote macros.

Changes in version 1.02:
Modified the {OT1,T1,LY1}Cochineal-{OsF,LF,TLF,TOsF}.fd files so that the swashQ tests work correctly even when cochineal.sty is not loaded.

Changes in version 1.01:
Corrected lgr encodings to replace Delta and Omega with uni0394 and uni03A9 respectively.
