Yes, I'm around.
It wouldn't be totally unfair to describe me as MIA, but I am not
intending to remain so.
I apologise to all the people whose email I haven't responded to about
Lyx and Balsa.
The situation is this:
LyX: I compiled 1.2.1 a couple of days ago. As of about now, I've put
some prerelease i386 1.2.1 debs up at http://people.debian.org/~jules
for eager beavers. I haven't done any clever version numbering tricks,
if you do install these you'll need to manually force an upgrade to
the real version when I upload it. You'll need the packages from
There are two reasons why I haven't just gone ahead and uploaded.
1. I want this version to go in main, built against xforms 1.0
(LGPL). This hasn't been uploaded yet. (not released yet?)
2. I need to sort out a font issue. For now, if you want to use the
cool funky font stuff, manually x set fp+ /usr/share/lyx/xfonts.
Balsa: Well, I need to look at it again, you're right. I was hoping my
next version could be a gnome 2 version.
Sorry again for the unreplied emails,
