LilyPond 2.22.0-1

LilyPond is not unique in making music notation: there are a lot of programs that print music, and nowadays most of the newly printed music is made with computers. Unfortunately, that also shows: just ask any musician that plays classical music: new scores do not look as nice as old ones.

What is the difference between hand-work and machine work, and what has caused it? How can we improve the situation? This essay explains problems in music notation (software), and our approach to solving them.

FEATURES:

· Automatic spacing, line breaking and page breaking.
· Handling of polyphonic collisions for notes, dots, and rests.
· Automatic placement of accidentals, beams, slurs, ties, based on optimal scoring algorithms.
· Users don't need typographical expertise to produce excellent notation.
· No user interaction necessary during running. Running the program can be automated which is convenient for mass converting databases of digitized music and printing algorithmic compositions.
· The Feta font has been tailored especially for LilyPond, and was designed carefully mimicking the finest hand-engraved scores. It is available as a scalable font, but also as a Metafont.
· Accidental cautionaries and suggestions, classic and modern styles
· Ambituses
· Arpeggio signs
· Balloon texts (teaching)
· Beamlets
· Blanking arbitrary notation elements (teaching)
· Chord names, in English, French or Italian
· Cluster notation and rhythmic grouping signs
· Coloring of arbitrary notation elements
· Cross staff beaming
· Cue-notes (automatic)
· Dashed or dotted bar lines
