We have posted a year-end update about the W3C Music Notation Community Group on the group blog. One of the highlights for MusicXML users is that MusicXML 3.1 development will be starting soon, either later this month or in early January.
MusicXML 3.1 will be focused on adding greater coverage for musical symbols, along with targeted bug fixes and feature enhancements. The goal is to maintain and improve MusicXML 3.0’s high level of document interoperability, without distracting from the longer-term work of the community group. You can see the current list of MusicXML 3.1 issues in the MusicXML GitHub repository.
If you would like to participate in MusicXML 3.1 development, please join the community group. Click on the link and press the “JOIN THIS GROUP” button, which will lead you through the process of joining the group. Joining the community group is free, and you or your company need not be a W3C member to participate.
Thank you for your continued support of MusicXML. I look forward to working together with the community group on this new update.
