No, I’m not aware of any specific problem. The difference between this one and the previous version is the Qt library version only. I simply had no chance to use this library version with LyX 2.3.x yet.

Problems may arise with document presentation and ui effects only. The LyX code ist the same.

The probability of show stoppers is very low. The library version 5.12.9 should be stable.

Thanks for testing.
