Version 2.3.3 of the GPLed musical score editor NoteEdit is available:


New features:

	- import MusicXML  

     Thanks to Leon Vinken <leon.vinken at hetnet.nl>

This feature is still experimental. 
Do not expect any compatibility with MusicXML files exported by
Rosegarden. The MusicXML files produced by the Rosegarden sequencer
are incorrect, because:
 - Not every <part> has a corresponding </part>
 - Note types crotchet and minim should be quarter, half etc.
 - MIDI channel numbers in MusicXML range from 1 to 16, Rosegarden starts at 0
 - MIDI program numbers range from 1 to 128, Rosegarden starts at 0
 - The part-name is empty
 - The score-part is empty

Furthermore: There is a undocumented feature : "direct" printing.
Thanks to Jorge <j.windmeisser at elogix.info>. This features uses
"abcm2ps" in background to enable quasi direct printing.

Unfortunately, this feature works only if you install NoteEdit
in KDE and "print to file" is not possible.

Use configure option --with-printing to enable this feature.
