Lyx upstream hasn't announced the release of 2.3.0 yet.
They found some issue on Windows ( ), and are holding back the release.

Should that bother a linux distro such as Solus?

sunnyflunk added inline comments.

Can we use $installdir/usr/share/metainfo/lyx.appdata.xml instead, appdata dir is now legacy.
