Dear LyX users,
despite unannounced until today there is an Windows installer available
for LyX 2.3.0 since March:
Due to some disagreements with some LyX developers, this will not be the
official LyX for Windows installer. However, it works and was already
downloaded more than 1000 times since March.
Due to the disagreement with the understanding how LyX under Windows
should be developed, I will provide the LyXWinInstaller as my private
project and support it of course.
The LyXWinInstaller will take care of everything that provides you a
fully functional LyX. That means LyXWinInstaller will take care of all
third-party programs LyX is using in the background (MiKTeX, TeXLive,
Python, ImageMagick, Inkscape etc.) and will configure and update them
for you. The goal is, as for the last years where LyXWinInstaller was
the official LyX for Windows installer, to provide an installer where
90% of the users just have to click few times OK and Nextbut to get a
fully functional LyX but that also gives some freedom for the 10 % power
users (to deselect third-party programs etc.).
As I understood it, there will be a new installer for LyX under Windows
from the LyX developers based on the code of LyXWinInstaller. I can and
will not give support for this installer because I was not involved in
