A quick round up of the changes to the site since the last update in February:
- There are a number of new additions to the software page including help for converting abc to/from MusicXML and a related (and new) abc editor program called EasyABC.
- Two more composers have agreed that their tunes can be displayed at abcnotation.com and have been added to the consent list.
- I’ve enhanced the tune search so that it includes zipped collections (i.e. collections where the abc files are stored in zip files); as a result there are some new inclusions such as Antonio (Nil)’s huge collection and the Corneymusers collection.
- There are also a number of new collections added to the list including the Take 6 Transcription Programme at folkopedia – although not a large collection of abcs, this is notable as the EFDSS online archive of historically important collections.
- Finally, I’ve implemented a system for adding comments to tune pages. Although it’s only me that can do it at the moment (manually), eventually I’m intending to automate this so that anyone can add comments. However, that’s some way in the future.
Enjoy (and keep filling in the “What next” poll)!
