Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 2.0.0
Release     : 0.17.rc1.fc15

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

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

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:

First public candidate for lyx-2.0.0 and thus this version has lots of fixes over the last version.

This update adds a new requirement to guarantee that the mathematical formula instant preview works every time.

su -c 'yum update lyx' at the command line.
