LilyPond 2.3.14 is out

From: Han-Wen Nienhuys

LilyPond 2.3.14 has hit the download server. If you go and  grab it,
you will enjoy the following NEWS features,

   * LilyPond will try to keep staves at the same distances across a
     page, but it will stretch distances to prevent collisions. This
     results in a more orderly appearance of the page.

   * Key signature cancellations are now printed before the bar line,
     and their appearance has been improved.

   * Different voices that all use  `\quote' can now refer to each

all in all, the biggest improvement is IMO the vertical spacing of
systems across the page. Well printed music has its staves at regular
distances. In the past, you could mimick this effect by setting
minimumVerticalExtent, but that made it difficult to typeset a
vertically tightly spaced page. With the vertical spacing engine, it's
become all automatic now!

        * input/regression/ (Module): new file.

        * scm/lily.scm (print): add function.

        * scm/music-functions.scm (quote-substitute): new

        difference into account when spacing naturals.

        * lily/ (create_key): create KeyCancellation grob
        separately, so the cancellation can be put before the staff-bar

        * scm/define-grobs.scm (all-grob-descriptions): add a
        KeyCancellation grob.

        * lily/ (struct Tuplet_description): new

        betweensystemspace variable.

        * ly/ set betweensystemspace: 20 mm

        * scm/page-layout.scm (space-systems): new function. Use spring
        and rod approach for vertically spacing systems.

        * ly/ tune down minimumVerticalExtent.

        * scm/define-grobs.scm (all-grob-descriptions): set threshold for
        vertical alignment.
