LilyPond 2.25.18 released July 14, 2024

We are happy to announce the release of LilyPond 2.25.18. This is termed a development release, but these are usually reliable for testing new features and recent bug fixes. However, if you require stability, we recommend using version 2.24.3, the current stable release.

LilyPond 2.24.3 released! November 19, 2023

We are proud to announce the release of GNU LilyPond 2.24.3. LilyPond is a music engraving program devoted to producing the highest-quality sheet music possible. It brings the aesthetics of traditionally engraved music to computer printouts.

This version contains a number of fixes since the release of the previous stable version in August 2023. We recommend all users to update. Scores converted to or written for 2.24.0 will continue to work with this release. A list of added features and other user-visible changes for 2.24 can be found at Among others, version 2.24.0 switched to Guile 2.2 and features a completely rewritten infrastructure for creating the official packages, finally allowing us to offer 64-bit binaries for macOS and Windows.

For distributions, LilyPond 2.24.3 most notably includes a fix to restore PDF conversion with the recent Ghostscript 10.02.1. Also Guile 3.0 is now officially supported, even though the recommended version will remain Guile 2.2 for the LilyPond 2.24 series.
