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