Pre-release of LyX version 2.0.0 (beta 2)

We are pleased to announce the second public pre-release of LyX 2.0.0.

Due to the many reports we received, support for polyglossia, XeTeX's new
language interface and babel replacement, has been added. In the same vein
we added basic and experimental support for LuaTeX as well.

Smaller changes to be highlighted are:
* better support for sub/superscripts
* externally launched documents are now possible to load in an already
  running LyX instance
* TikZ and PSTricks support in instant preview insets
* context menu handling.

Please report the problems and bugs at our lists or bug tracker and
also note that this release is for testing purposes only. Users are
encouraged to use current 1.6 stable release for any serious work.

Tarballs can be found at
binaries should follow soon.
