Fedora 11 Update: lyx-1.6.4-1.fc11



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-9077
2009-08-27 22:22:16
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : lyx
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 1.6.4
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://www.lyx.org/
Summary     : WYSIWYM (What You See Is What You Mean) document processor
Description :
LyX is a modern approach to writing documents which breaks with the
obsolete "typewriter paradigm" of most other document preparation
systems.

It is designed for people who want professional quality output
with a minimum of time and effort, without becoming specialists in
typesetting.

The major innovation in LyX is WYSIWYM (What You See Is What You Mean).
That is, the author focuses on content, not on the details of formatting.
This allows for greater productivity, and leaves the final typesetting
to the backends (like LaTeX) that are specifically designed for the task.

With LyX, the author can concentrate on the contents of his writing,
and let the computer take care of the rest.

Update Information:

A new lyx-1.6.4 release, covering amongst many minor improvements, fixes some
crash and data loss issues.    See also:  http://www.mail-archive.com/lyx-
announce lists lyx org/msg00119.html    lyx font packaging has also been
reworked, effectively obsoleting the older mathml-fonts package, to comply with
Fedora's font packaging guidelines.    Included here also is a rebuild of
koffice, with improvements primarily in -kformula packaging to use the newer-
style lyx fonts, and fixes for a font-related crasher.
