Hi Johan,

Having recently become interested in Irish Traditional Music where there are countless tens of thousands of tunes in ABC, the de facto standard for the tradition, I'd be keen to see abc2ly brought up to date. My tests with it on a sample of several tunes from can only be described as abject failures.

It would be great to have a current working version that operates really well, as the output from most of the ABC software available is dismal compared to lilypond. Although 'the dots' are frowned upon in ITM performance, it's handy to have a score to print out while learning a tune.

Is anybody interested in taking this on? I'd be happy to lend a hand as well. At least we would be working towards a mature and non-moving standard as regards ABC, so that's one good thing.

Is the abc2ly program still under active support/development? If so, are
there any plans to upgrade it to the newer standard?
