.53 is out there.  Attractions in this release: completely revamped
accidental placement.  This should fix the embarassing mistakes that
lily does when you typeset accidentals close to the octave boundary
(i.e. <bes4 cis> ).

No, afaics it works as good as it used to. Thanks a lot for cleaning up my messy code-spacing. I'll look at the <c cis> problem at the start of june. Probably won't be that hard to fix after all.

Second, the hallmark of Your Average LilyPond score has been
changed. For a long time I loved the layout of the G clef, and I could
use it to spot lily output from a distance. Yet, there were some
faults with it. The most important fault was the downstroke, that was
a straight line segment.  .53 contains a somewhat more curved G-clef
that took a long night of sweating on MF code. I hope you like it.

Oh yes, it has a very alternative look (even rhough I liked the old one) - I'll look forward to see it in print. It has a small problem, though: There's a thin white line (few white pixels) between point 9l and 9r (that is: on the top of the clef).
