        -    Program name  changed  from ACCU  Music  Printer to  ACCU  Music
        -    Entirely menu driven
        -    All  separate programs  (modules)  have been  combined into  one
        -    Built-in  graphics based  (or  text based)  editor for  entering

             have KEY= and TIME= in same measure)
        -    Miscellaneous bug fixes

   3/23/91   Version 2.1         Many bug fixes including:

        -    Missing extended measure rest  sign:  The extended measure  rest
             sign did not print in the music.  The extended measure rest sign
             now prints in the music correctly.
        -    Extended  measure rest double digit count:   Double digit counts
             of extended  measure  rests (like  the  number 10)  would  cause
             improper  spacing of the number.   Double digit  counts now work
        -    Long staff  line crash:  If there  were more than 50  notes in a
             staff  line, the  program  would crash.    The buffer  has  been
             expanded to 200  notes and will report an error  message if more
             than 200 notes are on a staff line.
        -    Tied  note transposition:  Notes that were tied across bar lines
             would  not retain  any key  changes  in the  note in  the second
             measure.  This has been corrected.
        -    Improper page break:   Often the program would print  across the
             page break.  A new method  of counting now makes the page breaks
             more accurate.
        -    Cutting off of top of staff line:  The  top of the key signature
             sometimes did not print.  This has been fixed.
        -    Better syntax checking:   Improper music commands  now result in
             an error message rather than causing poor print outs.

   1/12/91   Version 2.0

             Added many new features  including:  higher resolution printing;
             print  margin changes;  transposing program;  key, time,  title,
             author setting from within music file; alto, tenor, and  soprano
             clefs;  3  print  modes,  draft, medium,  and  high;  redesigned
             program interfaces; plus several other modifications

             Version 1.5

             Fixed bug which cut off top portion  of sharp key signature when
             printing treble  clef music.   Special  thanks again  to Russell
             Taliaferro for pointing out this bug.

             Version 1.4

             Fixed  bug  which wouldn't  print out  sharp key  signature when
             selected from  MUSIC.EXE.  Special thanks  to Russell Taliaferro
             for pointing out this bug.

             Version 1.3

             Removed  output  of  music to  graphics  screen.    No need  for
             graphics  card.    Output  is dumped  directly  from  memory  to
             printer.  Print abort option added.

             Version 1.2

             Fixed  bug in printing which  skipped certain staff  lines.  Bug
             corrected.  Added laser printer support.  Added dynamic support.
             Added extended number of rests.

             Version 1.1

             Fixed bug  in music formatting routine which  caused measures in
             music to be skipped.  Bug corrected and music formatting routine
             works  correctly.    Added version  #  and  date  of version  to
             MUSIC.EXE program.

             Version 1.0

             Initial release of ACCU Music System.
