ROSEGARDEN 1.7.2 RELEASED 2008-09-03/9-3-2008

The Rosegarden team is proud to announce the release of version 1.7.2 of Rosegarden, an audio and MIDI sequencer and musical notation editor for Linux.

This is a maintenance release that follows close on the heels of 1.7.1. It includes some comparatively small but really interesting new features and usability improvements, which mostly concern lyrics, and a new lead sheet LilyPond export mode that lets you make lead sheets by using LilyPond format chord texts (eg. g:maj7) over top of your lead line. None of these features have been documented yet, unfortunately.

Heikki Junes deserves the lion's share of credit for this release. All the features and most of the bug fixes have his name written all over them. Thanks, Heikki!

We're also releasing with several translations that are 100% complete, and many that are 80% or more, which is a big improvement over 1.7.1, which released with no translation updates at all.
