```Han-Wen (et al.): Thanks for 2.11.28!

```
Joe: Thanks for the spacing fixes, which have appeared in 2.11.28 -- things look *so* much better now (in particular, I've been testing initial accidentals and arpeggios), and I've been able to extract my (incredibly numerous) tweaks!
```
```
Final (?) note/tip on this: if anyone else finds Lilypond's default beginning-of-measure spacing too small in general (i.e., even without "modifiers" like accidentals and arpeggios), you can add a little more space using:
```
```
\override BarLine #'space-alist #'next-note = #'(semi-fixed- space . 1.8)
```
Of course, adjust the numeric value as you see fit.

Hope this helps!
Kieren.

```
p.s. On a side-note, can anyone explain to me the difference between "first-note" and "next-note" in the BarLine space-alist?
