Hello all,

I apologize if this question has already been asked.

Has the new version of pango been ported to the binaries on
mac/windows/linux? I noticed here
<> that there has
since been bug issues with a previous version that LilyPond has been using,
and now there's been fixes to those bugs. I noticed its in the latest dev
release of LilyPond, but my question is: is it being retroactively
implemented in the stable release?

Hi Josh

Nobody replied to you.
According to a recent discussion in this list, it seems that the new Pango
version in GUB makes lilypond compile much faster. This would be another
good reason to make a 2.18.3 release. Unless 2.20 is close... What
developers think about it? (I'm cc-ing lilypond-devel).

I don't think an update to 2.18 just to pick up the updated Pango would be a good idea. Updates to stable are there really to correct problems that slipped through into the previous version, not to provide upgrades. If the performance improvement is important, I would suggest using 2.19.18.
