MuseScore Development Blog

Welcome to MuseScore development news and digest blog.

[2018-09-20]

More than 1000 new users tried 3.0 alpha! Welcome aboard, brave people. :)

We changed the MuseScore file format a month ago to facilitate the introduction of a new tool: a scores comparator which shows the diff between two scores. From now on, you cannot open files created in early 3.0 development versions, so to use your files, open them in 3.0 alpha build and select "Save As... new file".

Right now, My_First_Score.mscz needs to be resaved as well...

Why do we need it?

MuseScore 3.0 is based on the latest Qt version. Unfortunately, QtWebKit which is used for MuseScore Connect is not presented in QT since version 5.4. So we migrated from QtWebKit (QWebView in particular) to QtWebEngine. Unfortunately, QtWebEngine team doesn’t maintain libs for MinGW due to the
