Lyx releases new version- now if only there was a SIMPLE way to put R code in a Lyx existing text class (having tried Sweave and sweaved myself into knots ! 😦

and I hope Ubuntu Linux 10.10  netbook fixes the curious case of disappearing menu bar in Lyx

(Hint start Lyx using from the terminal:

We are pleased to announce the release of LyX 1.6.9

 

Beta Release: LyX 2.0.0 beta 4 released.

February 6, 2011

We are pleased to announce the fourth public pre-release of LyX 2.0.0.
Except usual bugfixing we fixed random crashes connected with the new background export and compilation feature.

As far as new features is considered it is now possible

  • to set the table width,
  • customize the language package per document,
  • export LyX files as a single archive containing linked material (e.g. images) directly via export menu.

 

Since this is most probably the last beta release we also added convertor for old (1.6) preference files which are automatically checked on the startup now.
