Engraving overhauls after MuseScore 4's release
From the look of things, it seems further major improvements to the engraving algorithms are unlikely to be ready for the MuseScore 4-release. I'm talking about things like horizontal spacing, beaming, slur/tie-placement, etc.
But what about after the 4.0-release? On the one hand, introducing engraving-changes will likely mess up carefully tweaked existing MS4-scores. Would this mean any engraving overhauls will have to wait until, say, MuseScore 5?
On the other hand, 3.6 allowed the user a choice between the old and new look. And in particular, the user can switch between the "old" and new vertical justification in style-settings. Could engraving overhauls be added in a similar way to MS4, thereby avoiding messing up existing scores?
I know this is all very broadly speaking, but I'm trying to see what I can realistically get my hopes up for.
