ABC Import plugin reloaded
Since version 0.9.6, MuseScore comes with a plugin to import ABC notation. The plugin calls a webservice located at http://abc2xml.appspot.com/.
Previously this webservice was relying on ABC4J, a java library to handle ABC notation. Unfortunatly, this library is no more developped and many people requested better ABC import (in particular multi staff and multi voices).
This is now history :) http://abc2xml.appspot.com is now brand new and uses the ABC2XML python script by Prof.dr. Wim G. Vree and it should be a lot better! The beauty of building a plugin with a webservice, you don't even need to do anything to enjoy the new feature! Just try it.
To celebrate, I also put online a new version of the plugin for MuseScore 1.2. It's an adaptation by Stéphane Groleau of the original plugin. You can now paste ABC directly in the plugin. The plugin should now handle bigger ABC files better too.
