The first unified LV2 release, LV2 1.0.0, is out.
This release merges the previous lv2core package with all the official
extension packages, as well as example plugins, lv2specgen, and
additional data. From a developer point of view, the biggest change is
that all LV2 API headers can be used by simply checking for the single
pkg-config package "lv2" (for compatibility the previous "lv2core"
package is still installed). Implementations are encouraged to abandon
the "copy paste headers" practice and depend on this package instead.
With this release, several new extensions have become stable that
together greatly increase the power of LV2: atom, log, parameters,
patch, port-groups, port-props, resize-port, state, time, worker.

Together with a new website design http://www.laborejo.org comes a new release of the Music Notation Workshop.
Besides the usual fixes and small enhancements please focus your attention on the following new features:
-Non Session Manager support. Start Laborejo through the NSM Gui and it will be under session management
-Numpad Palette and corresponding shortcuts. A gui widget shows you what musical objects your numpad will insert.
You can change the palette through the menu or by switching through with numpad-plus and numpad-minus.
-A moving playback cursor, showing you which part of Bachs "Kunst der Fuge" you currently don't understand
Laborejo -Music Notation Workshop- is a graphical user interface for Lilypond, a MIDI creator and finally a tool collection to inspire and help you compose. You get beautifully engraved notation through Lilypond and nice ways to control the playback without ever leaving a notation-based environment.
