Type: KDE Text Processing
Depend: Qt 4.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, right out of the box. No
more endless tinkering with formatting 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 unpredictably different on different
printer drivers. Gone are the crashes 'eating'
your dissertation the evening before going to
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 1.6.2:
This is the second maintenance release in the
1.6.x series. The release fixes a large number of
major and critical bugs that were reported by
users of LyX 1.6.0 and 1.6.1. Most notably, three
bugs that might lead to dataloss were detected and
resolved. Furthermore, a number of crashes,file
conversion and LaTeX output problems are fixed. As
a bonus, the
performance of the application has been improved,
and the release also introduces some new features
and user interface improvements.
All users of LyX 1.6.0 and 1.6.1 are urged to
upgrade to this version.
