GLASGOW, Scotland -- April 1, 2010 -- The LilyPond development
team is proud to announce LilyPond 2.14, the latest stable release
of our award-winning music engraver.  "Music notation for
everyone" has never looked better!

Following the open-source motto of "release early, release often",
we are making 2.14 available now.  There are still a few
regression bugs compared to 2.12, but we urge everybody to
download 2.14.0 from the lilypond website when it becomes
available and use it in their production systems.  Let us know if
anything doesn't work; we love getting feedback!  We have
introduced a new "bug voting" system on our website to allow us to
better direct programmer effort:

Other major new features include:
  * eyeglass markup, to remind musicians to watch the conductor
    at critical moments.
  * in tablature, fets can be indicated with colored letters
    instead of numbers.
  * The Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm is now fully supported
    for single-line markup due to enhanced integration with
    Pango, and we now use FT_Error in the prototype for

The full list of new features is online here:
