|| ||[Kde-announce-apps] LyX 1.4.4|
|| ||Wed, 14 Feb 2007 18:18:04 +0100|
Type: Text Processing
Depend: Qt 2.x
LyX is a document processor that encourages an
approach to writing based on the structure of your
documents, not their appearance.
LyX is for people that write and want their
writing to look great,Â right out of the box. No
more endless tinkering with formattingÂ details,
'finger painting' font attributes or fuzzing
around with page boundaries. You just write. In
the background, Prof. Knuth's legendary TeX
typesetting engine makes you look good.
On screen, LyX looks like any word processor; its
printed output -- or richly cross-referenced PDF,
just as readily produced -- looks like nothing
else. Gone are the days of industrially bland
.docs, all looking similarly not-quite-right, yet
coming out unpredictablyÂ different on different
printer drivers. Gone are the crashes
'eating'Â your dissertation the evening before
going to press.
LyX is stable and fully featured. It is a
multi-platform, fully internationalized
application running natively on Unix/Linux and the
Macintosh and modern Windows platforms.
CHANGES in 1.4.4:
This is a bug fix release, but some new features
sneaked in, among which:
* Outline support: it is now possible to move
around parts of
Â documents in the Table of Contents dialog.
* Add new UI settings default-autotoolbars and
Â allowing to select what toolbars are active or
* Improved documentation.
* Speed improvments, especially on windows.
Cf. http://www.lyx.org/announce/1_4_4.txt for a
detailed list of changes.
This is probably going to be the penultimate 1.4.x
release before LyX
1.5.0, which will be made available as a first
beta version later this
week. Before the release of the final 1.5.0, a
least one 1.4.5 version
that is able to read the 1.5 format will be
