Nightlies for MuseScore 2.0.3
In parallel to the addition of new features for the next major release of MuseScore, we believe it's important to release regular bug fixes. In the past we issued MuseScore 2.0.1 and MuseScore 2.0.2 to fix urgent issues and introduce carefully chosen features. We are now working towards MuseScore 2.0.3 in the same spirit.
Since yesterday, the nightly build servers for Windows and Mac OSX create packages for the master and the 2.0.3 branches.
The nightlies for 2.0.3 branch should be compatible with 2.0.2. Meaning 2.0.2 will in most of the cases open a score made with 2.0.3 (except if you use some small new features in 2.0.3, not present in 2.0.2). In addition to the various bug fixes, MuseScore 2.0.3 nightlies now use the same version of Freetype on every platform to layout the musical glyphs. This is a bit on the edge for a bug fix release, but I believe it's important enough to have the same layout on all platforms to take the risk. The 2.0.3 nightly builds should be relatively stable but they are still untested software, so be careful and backup your work often.
The nightlies for the master branch are incompatible with MuseScore 2.0.x. Files created with these nightlies will not open in 2.0.x. The master branch being our playground, these nightlies can become very unstable.
If you are eager to get your hands on MuseScore 2.0.3, please download a 2.0.3 nightly and give your feedback! Feel free to squash some bugs from the issue tracker so we can include the fixes in 2.0.3. Join IRC #musescore on freenode.net or ask on the forum if you need any help.
