LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents (WYSIWYM - What You See Is What You Mean) and not simply their appearance (WYSIWYG - What You See Is What You Get). LyX combines the power and flexibility of TeX/LaTeX with the ease of use of a graphical interface. This results in world-class support for creation of mathematical content (via a fully integrated equation editor) and structured documents like academic articles, theses, and books. In addition, staples of scientific authoring such as reference list and index creation come standard. But you can also use LyX to create a letter or a novel or a theatre play or film script. The first release candidate of development version, LyX 2.1.0 RC1, has been released. In this new version:
- Bibtopic requires styles files to be passed via argument;
- Coloneqq not reliably displayed within LyX (fixed);
- Change potentially unsafe Ctrl+Alt shortcuts;
- Do not store Languages objects in completion words lists (fixed);
- Assertion when viewing Users Guide as LyXHTML (closed);
- Infinite recursion in ::notify (fixed);
- Fixed a crash when moving to Edit Menu after "Add Line Below";
- Fixed abort when Reverting Open All Insets in Shortcuts.lyx.
