Name: LyX
Version: 1.6.3
Type: KDE Text Processing
Depend: Qt 4.x
License: GPL
More Info:

 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 1.6.3:

This is the third maintenance release in the 1.6.x
series. Besides the usual improvements of
stability, the highlights of this release are:
 * tex2lyx is now able to read files in all latex
supported encodings and transform them into the
proper unicode-based format introduced in 1.5.0.
This paves the way for many other improvements in
LaTeX->LyX translation
 * The performance problems when editing a master
with child documents have been resolved.
 * LyX 1.6.3 introduces some goodies provided by
Qt 4.5 (menu support for fullscreen mode in linux,
close button on tabs). Of course these
improvements (as well as some Qt-related fixes)
only show up if LyX is compiled against Qt 4.5.
All users are encouraged to upgrade to this
