Hi everybody,
I know it’s off-topic but I wanted to share the news because, let’s be

Seriously guys, how cool is that??

I especially like how they show Dorico's approach which is to add LV directly as an item whereas Sibelius requires two actions: create a tie and then convert the tie to LV. Mind you, since an LV looks similar to a tie, I can easily see the technical justification for their design; but semantically, LV does not mean the same thing as a tie. So what do you do when you need an LV when there is no subsequent note to which to tie? Do you have to create an invisible note, add a tie, and then convert to LV? Or does Sibelius already allow you to have dangling ties, and this feature is just shortening the visual extent?
