LilyPond 2.23.8 released April 24, 2022
We are happy to announce the release of LilyPond 2.23.8. This is termed a development release, but these are usually reliable. If you want to use the current stable version of LilyPond, we recommend using the 2.22.2 version.
In this release, dropping Guile 1.8 support has finally become possible also for our sources. We’d like to dedicate this release to Ian Hulin who was one of the first systematically working on our numerous roadblocks for Guile 2 migration after tackling a few other high-level problems. In the time spans where his health permitted it, he was able to significantly reduce the amount of remaining problems for the Guile 2 migration after having started working on them in 2010, making the goal that we finally reached now more tangible for others to work on after he left us in 2015.
