Exactly one month after the first release, here is Laborejo 0.2!

Laborejo, Esperanto for "Workshop", is used to craft music through
notation. It is a Lilypond GUI frontend, a MIDI creator and finally a
tool collection to inspire and help you compose. It works by reducing
music-redundancy and by seperating layout and data.

The next release is scheduled for May, 8th. One month from now.
