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 third release candidate of LyX 2.1.0 Beta 2 has been released. In this new version:
- A new configurable preference option has been added;
- There have been changes to some often used menu items e.g. the following menu items moved from View to Document: View (Default format), View (Other formats), Update (Default format) and Update (Other formats);
- Whenever the user closes a (tabbed) view on a document, either by clicking on the tab close button, or by using the "File → Close" menu, LyX now closes exclusively that specific view;
- There have been some changes to the LyX command line;
- The Advanced Find and Replace feature now supports cancel of a long search operation by hitting the ESC key;
- Various pref variables were changed/added/obsoleted.
