    Release Notes: This release adds internal code cleanup, now using dynamic memory management instead of static. A Spanish translation was added, and the text dump mode no longer presents raw bytes, only meaningful information.

    •  30 Sep 2013 16:44

      Release Notes: This release adds a --language option allowing it to change note names according to Lilypond's "language" command. An older Encore format is enabled so that some very old files may be rescued too. Besides that, a minor bug was fixed, avoiding the output of "absolute" for Lilypond.

        Release Notes: This release implements reading lyrics and writing chords in the specific mode for that. It also fixes writing dynamics (hairpins), pedals, and some other symbolic notation. Another fix is for tuplets: now they are separated by groups according to the defining denominator number.

        •  28 Jul 2012 22:01

          Release Notes: This release fixes many bugs and adds separate scores with the individual instruments for multi-staff scores. It automatically completes the timing in each measure with rests and adds a warning comment if a measure has more time than is allowed by the time signature.
