News in release 0.9:
- hyperlink-aware versions of xdvi / dvips
- etex (version 1.1) and pdftex (version 0.11)
- bluesky cm type1 fonts (just ``dvips -Pcmz ...'' or ``dvips -Pcm ...''
if the cm fonts are known to your Postscript interpreter)
- some array sizes grow automatically, some are run-time configurable in
- each texmf tree can have its own ls-R file
- updated packages (incomplete): LaTeX2e <1997/06/01>, Catalogue,
amslatex, de-tex-faq, fancyhdr, floatflt, fontname, german, graphics,
koma-script, mfnfss, modes.mf, natbib, psnfss, pstricks, seminar,
tools, ulem, xypic
- some new packages (incomplete): ccfonts, hyperref, booktabs,
colortbl, comma, exam, overpic, sidecap
Maybe the most place take the etex- and omega-files (newer variants of TeX,
one time in the future thought to replace it); note also the bluesky-fonts,
which are PostScript-type1-versions of Knuths Computer Modern.
But I don't think that LyX can get any advantages of all this new stuff in its
present state -- besides the updated LaTeX2e of course.
