+Public release of LyX version 2.3.4-2
+=====================================
+
+This is an emergency release that fixes four bugs in 2.3.4. Only the
+first two really warrant an emergency release, but while we're at it...
+
+The first, bug #11728, caused a five-second delay when attempting 
+to save files on Windows. This was a side effect of the fix for #10091
+and reminds us why it would be good to have more testing on Windows.
+
+The second bug is discussed in this thread
+    https://www.mail-archive.com/lyx-devel@lists.lyx.org/msg210294.html
+and concerns a crash related to the math toolbar. This was due to an 
+uninitialize buffer_ member revealed by the fix for #11586.
+
+The third, bug #11724, affects Beamer presentations and causes bad output
+when page geometry is set in certain ways. LyX should and how does ignore
+such settings.
+
+The last, bug #11579, is an old one, but a serious one, that prevents
+the use of CJKUtf8 in ERT. It's a straightforward fix for a bug that is
+pretty serious for people who encounter it.
+
+All LyX users are encouraged to upgrade to 2.3.4-2.
+
+The original announcement for 2.3.4 follows.
+
+=====
+
+We are proud to announce the release of LyX 2.3.4. This is the fourth
+maintenance release in the 2.3.x series. 
+
+You can download LyX 2.3.4 from http://www.lyx.org/Download/.
+
+LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based 
+on the structure of your documents and not simply their appearance. It is
+released under a Free and Open Source Software license.
+
+LyX 2.3.4 is the result of on-going efforts to make our stable version more 
+reliable and more stable. One important change is that we have finally fixed
+a large number of bugs related to bibitems (see bug #7548). We have also (we
+hope) fixed a long-standing bug involving the saving of files on Windows to
+Dropbox folders.
+
+If you think you have found a bug in LyX 2.3.4, please open a bug report at
+http://www.lyx.org/trac/wiki/BugTrackerHome. If you're not sure whether it
+really is a bug, you can e-mail the LyX developers' mailing list (lyx-devel 
+<at> lists.lyx.org) and ask. 
+
+If you have trouble using LyX or have a question, consult the documentation 
+that comes with LyX (under the Help or Apple menu) and the LyX wiki, which 
+is at http://wiki.lyx.org/. If you can't find the answer there, e-mail the 
+LyX users' list (lyx-users <at> lists.lyx.org), where you will find an 
+active community of people who are ready to help.
+
+We hope you enjoy using LyX 2.3.4.
+
+The LyX team.
