A look ahead
When releasing a new version, you might be curious already about what's coming next, but first, let us look back.
We released MuseScore 1.2 less than one year ago. Since then version 1.2 has been downloaded more than 1.5 million times in more than 200 countries. We hear from many sources that MuseScore is steadily becoming a household name in music education worldwide. Keep in mind that less than 5 years ago, we launched musescore.org to create a home for the MuseScore community. The success of MuseScore today is thanks to all those who have contributed to MuseScore and evangelized it among their friends and peers. It can't be said enough: Thank you all!
So what's ahead of us? Well, MuseScore 2.0 will be the next release. If you like to know what new features it will bring, take a look at the 2.0 roadmap. We invite everyone to join in testing the new features and give feedback in the Technology Preview forum. The more test feedback the MuseScore developers receive, the faster MuseScore 2.0 can be released. Everyone is welcome to join, from starters to expert users.
