Frescobaldi 0.7 released, a new LilyPond music editor

Postby studio32 » Sun Dec 28, 2008 11:01 am

Hi all,

I just released Frescobaldi, a brand new LilyPond music score editor for KDE4.
It aims to be powerful, yet lightweight and easy to use, and it currently has
most features of LilyKDE (the KDE3 Kate plugin):

* Enter LilyPond scores, build and preview them with a mouseclick
* Point-and-click support: click on notes or error messages to jump to the
correct position
* A powerful Score Wizard to quickly setup a musical score
* Editing tools to:
- manipulate the rhythm
- hyphenate lyrics
- quickly enter or add articulations and other symbols to existing music
- run the document through convert-ly to update it to a newer LilyPond
* A powerful Rumor plugin, using the Rumor program to quickly enter music by
playing it on a MIDI keyboard or even your computer keyboard

You can download Frescobaldi 0.7 from ... 0.7.tar.gz

To use Frescobaldi you need also the latest lilypond-kde4 package, that
provides icons for the lilypond file type and a KDE service that enables point
and click in LilyPond-generated PDFs. Available at ... 0.2.tar.gz

Please try it out and help finding bugs :-)
many thanks and best regards,
Wilbert Berendsen
