We are proud to announce the release of GNU LilyPond 2.18.0 - the new stable release. LilyPond is a music engraving program devoted to producing the highest-quality sheet music possible. It brings the aesthetics of traditionally engraved music to computer printouts.

Among the numerous improvements and changes, the following might be most visible:

* Many items are now positioned using their actual outline rather than a rectangular bounding box. This greatly reduces the occurrence of unsightly large gaps.
* Sets and overrides can now use a simpler syntax
* Triplets with a given group length can now be written using a more user-friendly syntax

A full list of noteworthy new features is given in:

Great thanks go to the large number of LilyPond enthusiasts whose financial backing enabled one core developer, David Kastrup, to focus exclusively on LilyPond during the entire development cycle.
