So let me see if I understand. You have a problem with LyX 10 but not with LyX 
2.10 series. Is that correct?

My other remark is that are not changes that meet the litmus test of being 
considered important enough to deserve the major version jump. There has not 
been none in the previous 20 years. If we applied this reasoning we would 
start work on the release of LyX 1.11.
