LyX 1.4.4 now available for OS/2 & eComStation

June 05, 2007 by Paul Smedley

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Paul Smedley

Hi All,

I've just uploaded an OS/2 & eComStation port of LyX 1.4.4 to http://os2ports.smedley.info

LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents, not their appearance. It is released under a Free Software / Open Source license.

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 futzing 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 press.

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.

Unfortunately, the LyX 1.5.x tree uses Qt v4, for which an OS/2 / eComStation port is not available - so it seems 1.4.x will be the end of the line for us :(

Cheers,

Paul.
