Release Notes: LilyPond now supports quarter tones. They are entered by suffixing "ih" for a half-sharp and "eh" for a half-flat. In addition, this release sports a slew of bugfixes and small documentation updates.
Release Notes: This release adds a change in the chord syntax, which will save keystrokes when entering piano music. A lot of work has been done on the ancient notation engine. With this release, the 1.9 line is feature complete. Stabilization toward 2.0 will start, with the 2.0 release in the end of September.
Release Notes: This release squashes a couple of minor bugs in the chordnames, glissandi, and fingerings.
Release Notes: Many syntax improvements were made, including better syntax for grace notes and simpler syntax for multiple-staff music. Support was also added for tagging pieces of the music; tagged pieces can be excluded conditionally (hence, different music editions can be generated from a single definition).
Release Notes: This release opens the new development branch. It has major changes in syntax: all articulations are now postfix. Dashes have become optional in most cases. Furthermore, octave checks have been added. They check the current octave (analogously to bar checks), making it easier to find typing errors.
Release Notes: This release adds small updates to the documentation.
Release Notes: This release is focused on internal and external cleanups. Scheme and LilyPond input can now be seamlessly mixed. Entry and layout of texts, chord names, and chords have been revised and cleaned up entirely. The Web site has also been redesigned completely, and a lot of new information was added to it.
Release Notes: This is a release candidate for the pending release of the new stable branch, 1.8. Relative to 1.6, it has completely revamped support for chordnames, text formatting, ancient notation, and scripted music manipulation. Further new features include zigzag style glissandi, horizontal chord fingerings, metronome marks, beat grouping marks, cluster notation, and text on whole measure rests.
Release Notes: This release has a few small compilation fixes, and it fixes chord-tremolos.
Release Notes: Two minor bugs were fixed, and small updates were made for the Debian packaging rules.
