We are pleased to announce the release of LyX 2.0.5. This is the fifth
maintenance release in the 2.0.x series.

LyX 2.0.5 is the result of on-going efforts to make our stable version
even more reliable and stable. We have fixed a number of bugs and made
a number of improvements. These are detailed below. We encourage all
LyX users to upgrade to this version.

What's new in LyX 2.0.5

The View>Source widget now allows you to select the backend to display,
e.g., LaTeX or XHTML, rather than the output format. The previous choice
really made no sense: You didn't see a PDF there if you chose one of the
PDF output formats, but rather LaTeX. This solves some long-standing issues
with View>Source.

There has been an important change in how the "language" lfun works.
  - "language <LANG>" now toggles between languages
    (status quo ante LyX 2.0.2)
  - "language <LANG> set" sets to language <LANG>
    (meaning of "language <LANG>" as of LyX 2.0.2)
  - "language [reset]" resets to the document language.
  - Menu functions are unchanged.
