LyX is an almost WYSIWYG-frontend for LaTeX. It makes the power and
typesetting quality of LaTeX available for people who are used to
word processors. Since LyX supports LaTeX's concept of general
mark-ups, it is even easier and faster to create professional quality
documents with it than with usual word processors. It is also
possible to use LaTeX commands within LyX, so nothing of LaTeX's
power is lost.
You can extend the functionality of LyX by installing these packages:
* chktex: check for typographical errors
* gnuhtml2latex: import HTML documents
* groff: improved table formatting in plain text exports
* librsvg2-bin, inkscape: use the SVG image format in LyX documents
* linuxdoc-tools: export SGML LinuxDoc documents
* mythes-*: use the Thesaurus
* noweb: import noweb files
* rcs: integrated version control
* sgmltools-lite: export SGML DocBook documents
* texlive-xetex: use the XeTeX typesetting system
* wv: import MS Word documents

lyx (2.2.3-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Revert "Use Python 3 instead of 2", introduced in 2.2.3-3.
The support of Python 3 is still too fragile and results
in FTBFS bugs in packages depending on lyx conversion
scripts. Thanks to Andreas Beckmann <> for
spotting this bug and reporting it. (Closes: #889793)

After the dbgsym migration, there's no longer a lyx-dbg package
created and the package FTBFS twice in a row due to the leftover

* Remove myself from the list of Uploaders.
* Remove elyxer from the list of HTML exports, filled for RM because I'm
giving up package maintenance and there is no visible upstream activity.
Move HTML exporters/converters from recommends to suggests, there are
build in facilities for basic HTML exports.
* Remove lintian-overrides for misspellings, last override
was fixed, adding all the new ones is too tedious.
* Remove suggest for latex-xcolor, superseded by texlive-latex-recommended
which is already in our list of recommended packages. Thanks Norbert for
the hint. (Closes: #865242)
* Remove transitional package ttf-lyx.
* Prepare the -dbg package to automatic -dbgsym migration. Added the migration
dh_strip invocation to d/rules and removed the -dbg package from d/control.
* Depend on debhelper 10 for all the new cool stuff, e.g. dbgsym migration.
* Update Standards-Version to 4.1.1 - no changes required.
[ Dr. Tobias Quathamer ]
* Adopt package. (Closes: #634757)
* Use HTTPS for lyx homepage
* Update Vcs-Browser URL
* Use HTTPS for d/copyright URL
* Update d/copyright
* Use HTTPS for d/watch
