Denemo version 0.9.0 has been released.

Denemo is a program for inputting music notation.
The music being entered is displayed as conventional music notation and
can be typeset via GNU LilyPond and played via internal synthesizer.
Scheme scripting allows the user to generate music tests, music training
exercises and some educational games are included.

This is a major release filling out many features, fixing lots of minor
irritations in earlier versions and providing powerful features
unavailable from any other notation editor.
