lilypond 1.7.4

LilyPond 1.7.4 is out.


 * ability to put arbitrary texts on multi measure rests. (see

 * zigzag glissandi (thanks to Rune)

 * various syntax cleanups (which are handled by convert-ly)

 * preparations for Sodipodi support (by Jan).

 * New syntax for chords

      << c e g >>4

  will make a quarter note C major chord. This mechanism will supplant
  the current < > syntax at some point in the future

  I foresee that the syntax  will change as follows

      < { .. }  >  (current syntax)

  for simultaneous constructs will become

    \simultaneous {

  or perhaps

    << .. >>

  Current syntax < .. > for normal chords (eg. <c4 e g>) will become

    <c e g>4

  This is a major change, and I'm not sure how and when we will do it,
  but this change will simplify some syntax arcana, notably:

    * the start-piece-with-chord effect

    * the ordering of [ ] ~ in combination with chords

  it will also give us a chance to make the move to uniform postfix
  syntax for articulations, i.e.

    c8-(-\<-[  c8-)-\!-[ 

  (for two notes with a slur, decrescendo and beam in between.) The
  dashes must be maintained for technical reasons, but it is likely
  that will become optional at some point, so that we will get

     c8(\< [   c8 )\! ]
