The new Frescobaldi (2.0) will sport a more flexible plugin-like structure. In 
1.2 you could use the Expand Dialog (Ctrl+.) but that one does not create 
articulations on multiple selected notes/chords.

You can use VMPK by routing it to Rumor (which does the conversion to 
LilyPond) and use Rumor inside Frescobaldi via the rumor panel.

Both ;-) Main target is becoming available on Mac and Windows in an easier 
way. I'm not sure how to handle things like embedding a MIDI player. That sort 
of things probably still require multiple backends for the different 
platforms. New functionalities that are already in place are multiple and 
split views, and highlighting of LilyPond inside HTML, DocBook, LaTex, Texinfo 
etc. LilyPond-book will be supported and it will become much easier to define 
own build commands. Running commands is not yet done but almost all generic 
editing functionality is already in place.

There will also be a custom PDF preview with two-way point and click 
integration: moving the text cursor highlights objects in the PDF and objects 
in the PDF can directly be manipulated because the built-in parser knows that 
type of object they represent. The parser is already quite good and also 
provides the highlighting. Plan is also to integrate MIDI input so that rumor 
is not needed anymore. But this needs a MIDI backend and that is not yet done.
