LyX 2 is out

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011 by hinrich


The LyX team has just released the second major release version 2.0.0. Even though I have been using LyX for several years now, I did not know that the project exists already for 15 years. Congratulations to the team and my best wishes for the coming decades!

While everyone will have their own favorite new features, I am particularly happy with the following:
• Spell-checking as you type
• Being able to define a default output format (like PDF via pdflatex)
• Better definition of tables (e.g., horizontal alignment, table width, alignment on a decimal point)

Of all of the improvements, one made me most happy: "The R tool Sweave can be used out of the box with any document class using the sweave module."
