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 properly. - 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.

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.
