There are two new palettes, "Notes" and "Beam Properties". This palettes replace the "Note Entry Pad" which is removed in this release. Palettes operate via drag&drop but by first selecting an object and then double click on a palette entry they work like the old Pad.
Creation of new chords is now guided by a "New Score Wizard".
New implemented score elements are acciaccatura and appoggiatura grace notes. There is also a new line object which combines a text with a line. Texts can now be circled.
Import and Export of compressed MusicXml files (*.mxl) is now supported.
