LilyPond 2.22.0 released! January 10, 2021

We are proud to announce the release of GNU LilyPond 2.22.0. 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 includes improvements and fixes since the branching of the previous stable release in August 2017 (even though the final 2.20.0 was only released in March 2020). A list of added features and other user-visible changes can be found at http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.22/Documentation/changes/ Behind the scenes, this release switches to Python 3 and includes a number of performance improvements that should be noticeable for larger scores.

LilyPond 2.21.82 released December 14, 2020

We are happy to announce the release of LilyPond 2.21.82. This is a further pre-release test version, but these are usually reliable. We encourage all users and developers to download this version to test it to allow us to release a new stable version. If you want to use the current stable version of LilyPond, we recommend using the 2.20.0 version.
