LilyPond 2.7.4 has support for proportional notation, where
the space for a note is proportional to the time it takes.
some small samples are available from

It encompasses the following spacing features

   * When `strict-note-spacing' is set, notes are spaced without regard
     for clefs, bar lines, and grace notes.

   * Notes can be spaced proportional to their time-difference by
     assigning a duration to `proportionalNotationDuration'.

   * Symbol sizes (e.g. accidentals) are disregarded for spacing if
     `uniform-stretching' of the `SpacingSpanner' grob is set.

These improvements have been sponsored by Trevor Baca. He has also
sponsored various improvements to tuplet formatting,

   * Tuplets can be made to reach the next non-tuplet note by setting
     the `tupletFullLength'  property.

   * Tuplet brackets get arrows when they are broken across a line.

   * Arrow heads were added to the Feta font.

   * Nested tuplets are automatically positioned,

Furthermore, there are a bunch of small bugfixes in 2.7.4.

The MacOS X, Autopackage, and Fedora packages are uploaded as I send
this. The windows version will follow soon, hopefully.
