Sorry for the crossposting, but the statistics show that only some people have subscribed to all three lists.

Just after one month the Denemo project has released a new version of its music notation program. Denemo 0.8.6, which is available for Windows, Linux and MacOS (via third-party builds) as source and binaries. The software is distributed under the GPL. Denemos notation-functionality is ready for daily and professional use and aims to be the only tool you ever need for notation and an Open Source alternative to Finale, Sibelius or other unfree software, because the tools for producing art and culture should be free.

Notable new features are
- Downloading new commands and edit scripts between releases
- MIDI out, Tempo and Volume changes and insertion of arbitrary MIDI messages at any point in the music.
- Edit lyrics in text editor and see the syllable placement as you type. Multiple verses per voice allowed.
- Pasting LilyPond text directly into the Denemo window. By pasting the actual music text a Denemo editable score can be created from almost any LilyPond file.
- With JACK, the playback starts from the cursor or plays back the selection if there is one. All this happens withoutre-creating the MIDI data, and in any case without generating external files.

Official support, beneath our website, is avaible via our IRC channel #denemo on irc.freenode.net.

For future improvements our team searches for additional developers. If you are interested in notation and midi-sequencing please join the team!
