MuseScore 3.0.2 Release

• Jan 29, 2019 - 16:30

Today we are pleased to release MuseScore 3.0.2.

The main change in this release is the reinstatement of the plugin framework, which makes the most popular plugins work in MuseScore 3. Another important improvement is the new login page which appears when you use the Save Online feature. This redesigned page allows you to use Google and Facebook to sign in and to create a new account right in the editor.

Please guys I really need help on getting pass this ever occurring problem just immediately after I run MuseScore 3.0.2 Release version on my laptop (x64 bit compliant)? This notice keeps appearing...MuseScore3.exe has stopped working - A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available....This notification box keeps popping up just few seconds after running the program. I have uninstalled & reinstalled it but it keeps repeating the same problem notice. Please see attachment below to view the problem. Really frustrating...

It finally worked! I tried opening any MuseScore file directly (i.e mscz file) by right clicking on it & choose open with MuseScore 3.0.2 Release app, instead of running the app first. It just opened with ease without freezing. Although if I try opening it first, the problem still persist. Anyways big thanks Jojo for your concern & assistance, it was truly helpful, I honestly appreciate.
