LilyPond is proud to announce the 10-year anniversary release, LilyPond version 2.10.

New features:

  • Better page turns: Horizontal and vertical spacing is tuned simultaneously to put page turns at rests or explicitly marked places.
  • Flat music export format: A much simpler intermediate input/output format has been added. In the long term, this will enable other programs to read LilyPond music.
  • Small features and improvements: This includes support for falls and doits, dashed barlines, al niente hairpins, right hand fingerings for guitar, better formatting of tied chords, automatic beaming and nested tuplets.

A full list of new features is available here.

The initial inspiration for LilyPond came ten years ago when two musician friends grew disappointed with the bland and boring look of computer formatted scores. Every musician prefers to read beautiful music, so couldn't programmers solve that printing problem?

LilyPond just does that: it prints music in the best traditions of classical engraving with minimum fuss. Don't waste time on tuning spacing, moving around symbols, or shaping slurs—impress friends and colleagues with sharp sheet music.
