Laborejo, Esperanto for "Workshop", is used to craft music through notation.
It is a Lilypond GUI frontend, a MIDI creator and finally a tool collection to inspire and help you compose.
It works by reducing music-redundancy and by seperating layout and data.

This is the release of version 0.3
Download: https://github.com/nilsgey/Laborejo/tarball/0.3
Dependencies: http://www.laborejo.org/documentation

Linux Instructions: Unpack, cd into the created directoy, execute:
./laborejo-qt

Then use the number- and cursor keys for immediate success!
Check Help->Manual for navigational and note/rest entry keys. Everything else is in the menus.

New since version 0.2 (highlights):
-Many performance and stability improvements
-Improved Midi performance. Slur ends, tenuto etc.
-Ardour 3 exporter
-Fine control over midi velocity and note durations per note.
-Translation is now possible. A partial German translation is included.
-Lisalo Importer (convenient way to create new files with all jack connections set up already)
-Mirror notes, reverse, shuffle, sort ascending/descending
-The GUI can now open multiple files in tabs.
-Open as template: Use existing save files as templates for new ones. No need for explicit template files. Every file is one.
-Many new Lilypond and GUI functions such as: Auto-Piano staff from a single track (great for arpeggios), piano pedals and many more.
-Convert chord-tracks to single voice tracks

Most important known problems:
* This is Alpha Grade Software. Don't use for long-term work. However, the produced midis and PDFs will last forever.
* There is no built-in jack midi output yet. You have to export midi files.
* Documentation is nearly non-existent.
* Deleting selected objects may result in strange gui behaviour. Nothing a save/reload can't fix for now.

Have fun, it would be nice to hear from you!
