Sibelius 2022.7 adds dynamic guitar staves, which dynamically link a guitar notation staff with a guitar tab staff in the score at the same time. The update also includes more instruments, more templates, and other improvements and fixes.
Sibelius 2022.5 is out, making it easier to apply a header or footer on a per-section basis, such as a song or movement. Also added is the ability to define or change the content of a wildcard directly in the score.
Sibelius 2022.3 adds support for Windows 11 and macOS 12. The UI graphics have been changed, the manuscript papers are updated with some helpful new behaviors, and the ManuScript plug-in language gains more functions.
A major upgrade is out for Graphical MIDI Tools for Sibelius, which allows the user to manipulate MIDI information in the score in a graphical manner. It has been completely overhauled as an application that runs within Sibelius to provide a piano roll window.
Avid has introduced a new licensing system with the intent of making it easier for a single user to activate and use Sibelius on multiple computers. Sibelius 2021.12 for both desktop and mobile apps is out; headlining the improvements is a new way of entering percussion notation.
Avid is bringing back discounted upgrades, or “reinstatements”, for Sibelius customers with a perpetual license to get current with the latest updates and support — but the offer is only good through December 31, 2021.
