 This is something I have have often wondered about too. For example, if
 you have a book that was written in 1600 but your copy is a 1976 paperback,
 what do you put for the date?

 The date is supposed to be the publication date. So it depends upon exactly
 what sort of reprinting it is. If it's JUST a reprinting, then the
 original date will usually be appropriate; if it's more than that, then the
 later one. Generally, I tend to look at the copyright date and use that, and
 then you can add a note, as Rich suggested, if that seems appropriate.

 In the case you've mentioned, one would suppose there will have been
 substantial editing and such. So one would put 1976, to identify that
 particular edition.

Re: Installing pgfplots on the Mac

Hi Graham,

If you have at least very basic knowledge about how to use a UNIX  
command prompt this shouldn't be that difficult:


Open a Terminal window and type the following:

sudo -i
mkdir /path/to/latex/installation/pgfplot
cp -R /source/of/pgfplot/* /path/to/latex/installation/pgfplot

Depending on your LaTeX-Installation you might have to copy  
certain parts of the pgfplot-source to different target directories.




Actually, my immediate confusion is where it should go

The pgfplot instructions suggests texmf/tex/generic/pgfplots

But the mactex instructions additions should go into

/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local

But equally, the Mactex instructions also seem to suggest it should  
go into


$HOME/Library/texmf

 I have put the downloaded pgfplots folder into each of these  
locations, but get the same error about not being able to find  
pgfplots.sty


The Mactex instructions also suggest that you don't need to run  
texhash, but other advice on thsi forum suggest that you do need to  
run texhash, which I have done, but get a list of errors.


texhash: /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf: directory not writable.
Skipping...
texhash: /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-config: directory not writable.

texhash: /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-dist: directory not writable.
Skipping...
texhash: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-var/ls-R...
texhash: Done.

So I'm confused about where the pgfplot folder should be installed,  
along with the other issues.


I do however, think I understand your commands, just don't know how  
to fill in the path.

Well the answer would seem to be the need to use sudo texhash and not  
just texhash

In my favourite text editor, I use Ctrl-A for completion and Tab for
indenting.

But IMO, there is need for configurable adaptive keybindings:

user configurable: This is already possible (via the *.bind files and since
   1.6 also via GUI)

adaptive: smart bindings that take into account the context, e.g.
  the same key should be configurable to different lfuns

  There are simply too few keys for too many actions,

LyX version 1.6.0 (release candidate 2) is released

2008-08-29 Thread José Matos
Public release of LyX version 1.6.0 (release candidate 2)
=

We are pleased to announce the second release candidate of LyX 1.6.0.

LyX 1.6.0 will be the culmination of 12 months of hard work since the
release of the LyX 1.5 series. We sincerely hope you will enjoy the
result.

As usual with a major release, a lot of work that is not directly
visible has taken place. The core of LyX has seen more cleanups and
some of the new features are the direct results of this work.

The new features in LyX 1.6 are detailed in
http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/NewInLyX16

The file RELEASE-NOTES lists some known issues with this release
compared to the current stable release (LyX 1.5.6). An updated list of
issues might later be found at http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/ReleaseNotes


In case you are wondering what LyX is, here is what
http://www.lyx.org/ has to say on the subject:

   LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing
   based on the structure of your documents, not their appearance. It
   is released under a Free Software / Open Source license.

   LyX is for people that write and want their writing to look great,
   right out of the box. No more endless tinkering with formatting
   details, 'finger painting' font attributes or futzing around with page
   boundaries. You just write. In the background, Prof. Knuth's legendary
   TeX typesetting engine makes you look good.

   On screen, LyX looks like any word processor; its printed output -- or
   richly cross-referenced PDF, just as readily produced -- looks like
   nothing else. Gone are the days of industrially bland .docs, all
   looking similarly not-quite-right, yet coming out unpredictably
   different on different printer drivers. Gone are the crashes 'eating'
   your dissertation the evening before going to press.

   LyX is stable and fully featured. It is a multi-platform, fully
   internationalized application running natively on Unix/Linux and the
   Macintosh and modern Windows platforms.

You can download LyX 1.6.0rc2 here (the .bz2 are compressed with bzip2,
which yields smaller files):

ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/devel/lyx-1.6.0rc2.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/devel/lyx-1.6.0rc2.tar.bz2

Note that due to the amount of change, no patch is provided to upgrade
from version 1.5.6.

Prebuilt binaries (rpms for linux distributions, Mac OS X and Windows
installers) should soon be available at
ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/devel/

If you find what you think is a bug in LyX 1.6.0rc2, you may either
e-mail the LyX developers' mailing list (lyx-devel at lists.lyx.org), or open
a bug report at http://bugzilla.lyx.org

If you're having trouble using the new version of LyX, or have a question,
first check out http://www.lyx.org/help/. If you can't find the answer there,
e-mail the LyX users' list (lyx-users at lists.lyx.org).

Enjoy!

The LyX team.

I don't think that Ctrl-Tab has any bound functionality at the

It is, but it is a general regression on Mac: there is something very odd
about the tab key with 1.6. For example, in mac.bind, opttab is
supposed to switch between buffers in the same window; currently it does not
work.

(Note by the way that Ctrl is unavailable for any keybinding: a limitation

This is a known problem that we intend to fix before 1.6.0. The problem
is that the completion framework monopolize the tab key for requesting
completion.


Just courious:
* even if the completion feature is switched off?


This is hard-coded right now so yes, I think so, not sure though.


* is the Tab binding hard-coded or configurable?


hard-coded :-/




We need to find a good key in replacement for tab but we
didn't reach a consensus yet. Feel free to suggest something.


In my favourite text editor, I use Ctrl-A for completion and Tab for
indenting.

But IMO, there is need for configurable adaptive keybindings:

user configurable: This is already possible (via the *.bind files and since
   1.6 also via GUI)

adaptive: smart bindings that take into account the context, e.g.
  the same key should be configurable to different lfuns
  in math and text mode.

  There are simply too few keys for too many actions,
  so we should avoid bindings that result in command disabled.


Right. We try to do that with Tab related keys.

Yes, the problem in bugzilla is a different one, but the cause of both
problems is the strange parameter handling of the listings inset: In
the .lyx file the parameters are stored in one string in LaTeX syntax. The
same string is used for communication with the dialog. The intermediate
representation in memory is sometimes a vector, and sometimes a std::map.
Because of the latter the order of the parameters is not guaranteed at all,
and because of the parsing of the LaTeX string all sorts of other
problems can happen.

Both problems would be fixed by a sane parameter handling that would not
store all parameters in one string, but one parameter after the other in
the .lyx file. Preservation of order would then be easy to implement as
well.

 If you prefer I will add my suggestions there, otherwise I would open
 a new bug (with a reference to 4884).

Do as you like, I don't really care. There are good reasons for both

[announce] preview test release of LyX 1.6.0rc2 for Windows

2008-08-29 Thread Uwe Stöhr

Hello LyX testers,

I uploaded an installer for the second release candidate of the upcoming LyX 
version 1.6.0 for Windows.

NOTE: LyX 1.6rc2 is not a stable release! That means it is stable enough for 
testing, but expect
inconsistencies and regressions. This preview release is build for interested 
LyX users who want
to check out the new features of LyX.

The new features of LyX are listed here:
http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/NewInLyX16

! THIS LYX VERSION SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR ANYTHING ELSE THAN TESTING !

-

The installer for this version can be downloaded from:
http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=5117release_id=15072

(General infos about the installer can be found here:
 http://wiki.lyx.org/Windows/LyXWinInstaller )

This LyX version can be installed side by side to an existing LyX 1.5 
installation when you uncheck
the installer option update the .lyx file extension settings. It will be installed 
as LyX
1.6.0rc2.

Installer Changelog:
-
Version 4.08
- LyX 1.6rc2
  (list of current regressions: http://tinyurl.com/yu4the )
  (list of current crashes and critical bugs: http://tinyurl.com/653prg)
- new Catalan translation of the installer (thanks to Joan Montané)

If you have a bibliography, check that.  One way a document can suddenly

 This is something I have have often wondered about too. For example, if
 you have a book that was written in 1600 but your copy is a 1976 paperback,
 what do you put for the date?

 The date is supposed to be the publication date. So it depends upon exactly
 what sort of reprinting it is. If it's JUST a reprinting, then the
 original date will usually be appropriate; if it's more than that, then the
 later one. Generally, I tend to look at the copyright date and use that, and
 then you can add a note, as Rich suggested, if that seems appropriate.

 In the case you've mentioned, one would suppose there will have been
 substantial editing and such. So one would put 1976, to identify that
 particular edition.

Hi Graham,

If you have at least very basic knowledge about how to use a UNIX  
command prompt this shouldn't be that difficult:


Open a Terminal window and type the following:

sudo -i
mkdir /path/to/latex/installation/pgfplot
cp -R /source/of/pgfplot/* /path/to/latex/installation/pgfplot

Depending on your LaTeX-Installation you might have to copy  
certain parts of the pgfplot-source to different target directories.




Actually, my immediate confusion is where it should go

The pgfplot instructions suggests texmf/tex/generic/pgfplots

But the mactex instructions additions should go into

/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local

But equally, the Mactex instructions also seem to suggest it should  
go into


$HOME/Library/texmf

 I have put the downloaded pgfplots folder into each of these  
locations, but get the same error about not being able to find  
pgfplots.sty


The Mactex instructions also suggest that you don't need to run  
texhash, but other advice on thsi forum suggest that you do need to  
run texhash, which I have done, but get a list of errors.


texhash: /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf: directory not writable.
Skipping...
texhash: /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-config: directory not writable.
Skipping...
texhash: /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-dist: directory not writable.
Skipping...
texhash: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-var/ls-R...
texhash: Done.

So I'm confused about where the pgfplot folder should be installed,  
along with the other issues.


I do however, think I understand your commands, just don't know how  
to fill in the path.

Well the answer would seem to be the need to use sudo texhash and not  
just texhash

LyX version 1.6.0 (release candidate 2) is released

2008-08-29 Thread José Matos
Public release of LyX version 1.6.0 (release candidate 2)
=

We are pleased to announce the second release candidate of LyX 1.6.0.

LyX 1.6.0 will be the culmination of 12 months of hard work since the
release of the LyX 1.5 series. We sincerely hope you will enjoy the
result.

As usual with a major release, a lot of work that is not directly
visible has taken place. The core of LyX has seen more cleanups and
some of the new features are the direct results of this work.

The new features in LyX 1.6 are detailed in
http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/NewInLyX16

The file RELEASE-NOTES lists some known issues with this release
compared to the current stable release (LyX 1.5.6). An updated list of
issues might later be found at http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/ReleaseNotes


In case you are wondering what LyX is, here is what
http://www.lyx.org/ has to say on the subject:

   LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing
   based on the structure of your documents, not their appearance. It
   is released under a Free Software / Open Source license.

   LyX is for people that write and want their writing to look great,
   right out of the box. No more endless tinkering with formatting
   details, 'finger painting' font attributes or futzing around with page
   boundaries. You just write. In the background, Prof. Knuth's legendary
   TeX typesetting engine makes you look good.

   On screen, LyX looks like any word processor; its printed output -- or
   richly cross-referenced PDF, just as readily produced -- looks like
   nothing else. Gone are the days of industrially bland .docs, all
   looking similarly not-quite-right, yet coming out unpredictably
   different on different printer drivers. Gone are the crashes 'eating'
   your dissertation the evening before going to press.

   LyX is stable and fully featured. It is a multi-platform, fully
   internationalized application running natively on Unix/Linux and the
   Macintosh and modern Windows platforms.

You can download LyX 1.6.0rc2 here (the .bz2 are compressed with bzip2,
which yields smaller files):

ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/devel/lyx-1.6.0rc2.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/devel/lyx-1.6.0rc2.tar.bz2

Note that due to the amount of change, no patch is provided to upgrade
from version 1.5.6.

Prebuilt binaries (rpms for linux distributions, Mac OS X and Windows
installers) should soon be available at
ftp://ftp.devel.lyx.org/pub/lyx/devel/

If you find what you think is a bug in LyX 1.6.0rc2, you may either
e-mail the LyX developers' mailing list (lyx-devel at lists.lyx.org), or open
a bug report at http://bugzilla.lyx.org

If you're having trouble using the new version of LyX, or have a question,
first check out http://www.lyx.org/help/. If you can't find the answer there,
e-mail the LyX users' list (lyx-users at lists.lyx.org).

Enjoy!

The LyX team.

I don't think that Ctrl-Tab has any bound functionality at the  
moment.  I was suggesting it as a possible standard binding for  
cycling through eqnarray environment fields.  In previous versions of  
LyX (prior to 1.6), this was accomplished by the Tab key, but Tab now  
is bound for word completion.

Okay - perhaps this is a Mac nuance.  On Mac, Command-Tab (bound to

It is, but it is a general regression on Mac: there is something very odd
about the tab key with 1.6. For example, in mac.bind, opttab is
supposed to switch between buffers in the same window; currently it does not
work.

(Note by the way that Ctrl is unavailable for any keybinding: a limitation
of Qt.)

In my favourite text editor, I use Ctrl-A for completion and Tab for
indenting.

But IMO, there is need for configurable adaptive keybindings:

user configurable: This is already possible (via the *.bind files and since
   1.6 also via GUI)

adaptive: smart bindings that take into account the context, e.g.
  the same key should be configurable to different lfuns
  in math and text mode.

  There are simply too few keys for too many actions,
  so we should avoid bindings that result in command disabled.


Right. We try to do that with Tab related keys.

Yes, the problem in bugzilla is a different one, but the cause of both
problems is the strange parameter handling of the listings inset: In
the .lyx file the parameters are stored in one string in LaTeX syntax. The
same string is used for communication with the dialog. The intermediate
representation in memory is sometimes a vector, and sometimes a std::map.
Because of the latter the order of the parameters is not guaranteed at all,
and because of the parsing of the LaTeX string all sorts of other
problems can happen.

Both problems would be fixed by a sane parameter handling that would not
store all parameters in one string, but one parameter after the other in
the .lyx file. Preservation of order would then be easy to implement as
well.

 If you prefer I will add my suggestions there, otherwise I would open
 a new bug (with a reference to 4884).

Do as you like, I don't really care. There are good reasons for both

Hello LyX testers,

I uploaded an installer for the second release candidate of the upcoming LyX 
version 1.6.0 for Windows.

NOTE: LyX 1.6rc2 is not a stable release! That means it is stable enough for 
testing, but expect
inconsistencies and regressions. This preview release is build for interested 
LyX users who want
to check out the new features of LyX.

The new features of LyX are listed here:
http://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/NewInLyX16

! THIS LYX VERSION SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR ANYTHING ELSE THAN TESTING !

-

The installer for this version can be downloaded from:
http://developer.berlios.de/project/showfiles.php?group_id=5117release_id=15072

(General infos about the installer can be found here:
 http://wiki.lyx.org/Windows/LyXWinInstaller )

This LyX version can be installed side by side to an existing LyX 1.5 
installation when you uncheck
the installer option update the .lyx file extension settings. It will be installed 
as LyX
1.6.0rc2.

Installer Changelog:
-
Version 4.08
- LyX 1.6rc2
  (list of current regressions: http://tinyurl.com/yu4the )
  (list of current crashes and critical bugs: http://tinyurl.com/653prg)
- new Catalan translation of the installer (thanks to Joan Montané)

If you have a bibliography, check that.  One way a document can suddenly

Hi Graham,

If you have at least very basic knowledge about how to use a UNIX

Open a Terminal window and type the following:

sudo -i
mkdir /path/to/latex/installation/pgfplot
cp -R /source/of/pgfplot/* /path/to/latex/installation/pgfplot

Depending on your LaTeX-Installation you might have to copy  
certain parts of the pgfplot-source to different target directories.




Actually, my immediate confusion is where it should go

The pgfplot instructions suggests texmf/tex/generic/pgfplots

But the mactex instructions additions should go into

/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local

But equally, the Mactex instructions also seem to suggest it should  
go into


$HOME/Library/texmf

 I have put the downloaded pgfplots folder into each of these  
locations, but get the same error about not being able to find  
pgfplots.sty


The Mactex instructions also suggest that you don't need to run  
texhash, but other advice on thsi forum suggest that you do need to  
run texhash, which I have done, but get a list of errors.


texhash: /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf: directory not writable.

texhash: /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-config: directory not writable.
