We’ve today made available a minor update to Sibelius 7 that addresses some initial issues found in the product since it was released to manufacturing just over a month ago, and since its public release just under three weeks ago.
Sibelius 7.0.1 is available as a free, downloadable update for existing Sibelius 7 users. If you’re still using the 30-day trial version of Sibelius 7, you can also download and install the update to benefit from the fixes in this update.
This update addresses stability, performance and includes a good number of bug fixes. It’s recommended for all Sibelius 7 users. The complete list of fixes is quite extensive (we’ve fixed nearly 200 bugs in this update), so if you have some time on your hands, you can read it in full here.
Also included is an update for the Sibelius 7 Sounds sample library. Do be careful to only download and run the updater for Sibelius 7 Sounds if you already have the full library installed: if you’re running the trial version of Sibelius 7, for example, you definitely don’t need and should not install the Sibelius 7 Sounds update.
If you’re reading this on a different computer to that on which Sibelius 7 is installed, the simplest way to get the update is to open a score, open the File tab, choose the Help page, and click Check For Updates to be taken directly to the web site to download the update.
From today, the 30-day trial version available from the Sibelius web site has also been updated to Sibelius 7.0.1, so if you’ve been waiting for some initial wrinkles to be ironed out before jumping in, now’s a good time to get your feet wet.
