I've attached the announcement for LyX-1.2.2 which has been released
today. The changes explicitly declare support for xforms-1.0:

----------------------- snip -------------------
- LyX builds with the newly released xforms 1.0. Actually, it is

  support for older versions will probably be dropped in LyX 1.3.0

I've been building this version on unstable and uploaded it to

We are glad to announce the release of LyX 1.2.2.

LyX 1.2.2 is a maintenance release. It is a recommended upgrade from
1.2.0 or 1.2.1, especially since it fixes a few bugs introduced in

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

  LyX is an advanced open source document processor that encourages an
  approach to writing based on the structure of your documents, not their
  appearance. LyX lets you concentrate on writing, leaving details of 
  visual layout to the software.

  LyX runs on many Unix platforms (including MacOS X), OS/2, and under
  Windows/Cygwin. Note that all these ports use the same xforms interface 
  and therefore need an X server. 

You can download LyX 1.2.2 here :


Prebuild binaries (mainly rpms for linux distributions) should soon be 
available at

If you already have LyX 1.2.1 sources, you may want to apply the
following patch instead
If you find what you think is a bug in LyX 1.2.2, you may either
e-mail the LyX user's mailing list (lyx-users@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/, and e-mail the LyX user's list if you
can't find an answer there.
