Lilypond 2.14.0

Lilypond 2.14.0 for Mandriva Linux 2010.2

LilyPond is a music engraving program, devoted to producing the highest-quality sheet music possible. It brings the aesthetics of traditionally engraved music to computer printouts. LilyPond is free software and part of the GNU Project.

 

 

 

LilyPond came about when two musicians wanted to go beyond the soulless look of computer-printed sheet music. Musicians prefer reading beautiful music, so why couldn't programmers write software to produce elegant printed parts? The result is a system which frees musicians from the details of layout, allowing them to focus on making music. LilyPond works with them to create publication-quality parts, crafted in the best traditions of classical music engraving.

After a rather long space of time, we are proud to offer a new stable release to all musicians using a Mandriva distro.

Some new Features:

  • Lilypond now helps beams avoid collisions with other grobs! This feature works completely with manual beams. It also works for all automatic beams that do not end right before a change in staff. For this special case, please use manual beams.
  • Single beat repeats for sixteenth or shorter notes and beat repeats for measures containing notes of varying durations are now supported.
  • Lilypond now engraves woodwind fingering charts.
  • MIDI output has been improved.
  • MIDI-import through Midi2ly is improved.
  • New markup commands \pattern and \fill-with-pattern are available.
  • A minimal composer toolkit of modal transformations is provided. A motif may be transposed, inverted and/or converted to its retrograde within any scale.
  • Compound time signatures are now supported by the \compoundMeter command, which can be used instead of \time.
  • New commands makeStringTuning and contextStringTuning allow the creation of string tunings in the form of a Lilypond chord construct.
  • Funk-style and Walker-style shape notes have been added.
  • Text crescendo spanners can now be added directly using \cresc, \dim and \decresc.
  • Dashed and dotted slurs, phrasing slurs, and ties have been made variable thickness, and partially dashed slurs are now available.
  • Tuplet number formatting functions are now available to print other fractions and to add notes to the number or fraction.
  • And much more...
