LilyPond version 2.12 available — 12 year anniversary release
-------------------------------------------------------------
December, 2008.

We are proud to announce the release of GNU LilyPond 2.12 “Rune”.

Our joy is tinged with sadness, as long-time LilyPond contributor
and friend Rune Zedeler passed away on the 2nd of July, 2008. This
release is dedicated to him.

Rune was a computer programmer, a musician and a valued
contributor to LilyPond. He had been enthusiastically involved in
the project for the past six years, and he will be sorely missed
in our community.

Major updates
-------------
* Collision detection has been vastly improved. Outside-staff
objects now avoid each other automatically, so far fewer manual
tweaks are required to obtain a pleasing layout.
* The documentation has been almost entirely rewritten during
the year-long "Grand Documentation Project", and the online
documentation is both much better-looking and far easier to
browse. The program is now available in 6 languages, and the
documentation is partially available in French, Spanish and
German. It has never been easier to get started with 'Pond!
* Almost 30 new features, among others transposable fret
diagrams, microtonal accidentals, and a much improved musicxml2ly,
have been implemented and nearly 200 bugs have been fixed. For a
complete overview surf to

Happy music typesetting!

LilyPond was brought to you by...
