It’s that time of year again so I thought I’d give a quick round-up of what’s been going on here in abc land over the past year:

Here are some of the possibilities:

- Links to amazon.com – so you can search for recorded versions of tunes
- A smart-phone app that connects to the tune search – so you can access it anywhere
- Allow comments on tune pages – so you can add notes & comments
- Melody search – so you can find tunes by searching for a sequence of notes

… at least, in terms of the number tunes available in the tune search.
Aside from the attention grabbing headline, it’s customary at this time of the year to take a look back at what developments have happened over the year, so I thought I might as well join in. Here are a few of the 2010 highlights for abcnotation.com:
I’ve just released a new edition of the tune search and I’m pleased to announce that it’s massively increased in size now with over 275,000 tunes indexed and available for searching!
When I originally set up the tune search I planned not to display copyright tunes.
I’ve just released the May edition of the tune search – now with 61,000 tunes, including several thousand newly added song melodies from the Digital Tradition archive. Enjoy!
