a few days ago, I posted a link to
which made me realize that the static pages visitors are most likely
to visit when then don't know LilyPond, are realized with very old
versions of Lily: 1.4, 1.8 -- the most recent being 2.1 in
I saw this also some time ago when I tried to figure out how to make these examples translateble.
LilyPond has evolved a lot, and maybe the output is better now?
For the Schubert I did some updates with the current "centered dynamics" piano template, or at least then some month ago. It was not really good because the new spacing mechanism placed the dynamics on the barlines. Otherwise: the benchmarking tells about trying to follow the original as close as possible. In the current version, though, it looks again more different from the original text than in the version it is displayed on the webpage. How is the benchmarking anyways? Do we still do this kind of comparement in recent versions? Or should we just put some third new example (eg for the 2.10 vs 2.22 versions) which
shows  the improvements between those releases?
we consider updating the benchmarks page, or creating a new one (with
comparisons to recent Sibelius or Finale versions, for instance)? Or
maybe we could (if a few guys have some time to do it) eventually
create a few more pages, including the "features page" which was
planned on
Comparence to new programs should be good, Sibelius has improved a lot (eg included the spacing mechanism)
but feta is just much much better!
Is this a good idea or a waste of time? -- could be both :)
I might see to put some time into it after updating the translation, but rather only in autumn/winter.
