Nice to hear from you. It has been a while.

Is there a new release/beta version around or are things mostly svn at this
point. I would love to play with it some more.

For the post topic, my comparisons as of now (released versions):

complete? formatting? usability?

nted almost good quite good
uses cairo, fast graphics + pango
can export to lilypond if preferred, no options now.
author quite good about fixes, new features...

mscore very lovely, good, but stability/UI
too flexible issues
uses qt4, some speed issues for large scores?
author quite good about fixes, new features
but this is a large and complex work.

denemo claimed lilypond wierd, buggy
Gtk-GUI feeder for lilypond--if one wants to try
lilypond's markup, there is a kate plugin and a
python-qt app-frescobaldi.

noteedit good lilypond hokey, get's job done
no longer maintained, KDE3, runs fine on KDE4
ignore error messages if you get em

rosegarden also does scoring. I found it nearly impossible to use for this.
It is one of the most complete DAW programs in linux but is now dated, stuck
with KDE3, could not run on KDE4. Being converted to QT4?

canorus is the other successor to noteedit. Was very incomplete last outing.
Anyone heard from them lately?
