Avid has released Sibelius 2019.7, its latest update to Sibelius. 2019.7 contains no new major features, but there are some MusicXML improvements and fixes in the areas of stability, fonts, PDF export, and playback.
Steinberg has released Dorico 2.2.10. We explore what’s new in this update, which introduces improvements across all areas of the program and addresses a number of bug fixes as well, making it a solid iteration of the program and a worthwhile update to the massive 2.2 release.
Sibelius 2019.1, released to coincide with the opening of the 2019 NAMM Show, introduces a new Review Mode, adds some playback enhancements and integrates Avid Link, the new way for users to manage their Avid account, licensing, and subscriptions.
Avid has released Sibelius 2018.12. Coming less than three weeks after the release of Sibelius 2018.11, today’s release is largely intended to fix bugs that appeared in last month’s release, and it also addresses several other issues.
Today Steinberg released Dorico 2.1.10, a maintenance update to its scoring program. There are no new features in Dorico 2.1.10, but the update addresses a number of stability and performance improvements that users will appreciate.
Today Avid released Sibelius 2018.7, the latest version of its notation software. This is a workmanlike release devoted to fixing bugs, some of which newly appeared in the 2018.6 update, and some which have been around longer.
Today MuseScore announced the release of MuseScore 2.3, featuring the brand new MuseScore Extension facility to allow additional packages of features to be easily delivered and installed without the need to update the program. These extensions can include new instruments and sounds as well as new palettes and other enhancements. In conjunction with MuseScore 2.3, MuseScore is releasing the first such extension, MuseScore Drumline.
Avid today released Sibelius 2018.5 to fix an issue in Sibelius where running some plug-ins would cause a memory leak that slowed Sibelius down until you restarted it. This most notably affected the Dolet MusicXML export plug-in, and only on Windows, not on Mac.
Today Avid released Sibelius 2018.4.1, a maintenance release to the substantial 2018.4 release from earlier this month. A few bugs hitched their way along for the ride on that release, and those have now been fixed in the latest update.
Today Avid released Sibelius 2018.4, a broad release with many new features and some longstanding requests addressed. Areas of improvement include multi-edits for text, a new note spacing rule affecting multiple voices and other cases, deleting and adding bars at the beginning of the score, smarter ties, and many more other enhancements. Avid also announced a new naming strategy where the pro-level version is now called “Sibelius Ultimate”.
