LilyPond 1.9.0

The heat is on!

LilyPond 1.9 is out, it features the syntax improvements that we
promised for so long, and then some more.


New features in 1.9 since 1.8

   * Octave checks make octave errors easier to correct.  The syntax is
            \octave PITCH

     This checks that PITCH (without octave) yields PITCH (with octave)
     in \relative mode. If not, a warning is printed, and the octave is

   * All articulations must now be entered postfix. For example,

                c8[( d8])
     is a pair of beamed slurred eighth notes.

   * The definition of `\relative' has been simplified.  Octaves are
     now always propagated in the order that music is entered. In the
     following example,
            \repeat "unfold" 3  BODY \alternative { ALT1 ALT2 ALT3 }
     the octave of BODY is based on PRE, the starting octave of ALT1 on
     BODY, the starting octave of ALT2 on ALT1, etc.

     The same mechanism is used for all other music expressions, except
     the chord. Backwards compatibility is retained through a special
     program option, which is set through

            #(ly:set-option 'old-relative)
