LilyPond 2.24.2 released! August 12, 2023
We are proud to announce the release of GNU LilyPond 2.24.2. 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 February 2023. This includes an update of the library for garbage collection, addressing crashes when compiling very large scores (several hundreds of pages) on Windows. 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 https://lilypond.org/doc/v2.24/Documentation/changes/. 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.
LilyPond 2.25.7 released July 30, 2023
We are happy to announce the release of LilyPond 2.25.7. 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 2.24.1, the current stable release.
