MuseScore 2.2 Release Candidate
Today, we are announcing the release of the MuseScore 2.2 Release Candidate (RC). In general, a release candidate means that we have done everything we plan to do for the release, and we are welcoming one final round of testing to be sure we have not forgotten anything. In this case, the RC contains the alpha release of MS_General.sf3, and we are waiting for the new MuseScore SoundFont to be ready before the final release.
Assuming all goes well, there will be an official release of MuseScore 2.2 on March 27 that will be identical to this release candidate except for updated translations (see below) and the updated SoundFont. At that point, you can expect another announcement with full details on everything you need to know about MuseScore 2.2. We have in-progress release notes which list the bug fixes and new features in MuseScore 2.2. Our thanks to everyone who participated and helped us improve MuseScore!
If you find issues in this release candidate, we encourage you to post about them to our support forum. If you are sure you have found a bug and that it has not been reported already, you may post directly to the issue tracker. Please indicate that you found the bug in the 2.2-dev version.
