The org-mode LaTeX exporter: LaTeX for non-TEXers

By: Pedro A. Aranda Gutiérrez This article shows how to configure and use the org-mode provided by Emacs to produce pretty documents. org is a multi-purpose structured text file format and Emacs can translate it to LaTeX files which, in turn, can be translated into pretty PDF documents, taking advantage of all the typesetting facilities provided by LaTeX. This is a compendium of tricks evolved out of the experience of working with Emacs, org-mode and LaTeX.

LyX Devs Release First 2.0 Release Candidates

Considering that the dev team has been working on it for about two years now, the LyX 2.0 release candidates are starting to appear relatively quickly (RC2 at time of writing). The file format is now fairly fixed and should now be forwards compatible with all later versions, so this might be a good time for LyX die hards to check out 2.0, if they haven't already.
