LilyPondTool prerelease available

The long awaited 2.14 release of LilyPondTool is now available for download from

Unzip to your jEdit settings directory (e.g. c:\documents and settings\YOU\.jedit)

The most important new features are:
- completely rewritten parser (best used with "Parse on keystroke" - See Plugins > Plugin Options > SideKick) (the new parser is created using flex and bison so very closely mirrors the actual lilypond parser)
- instant compile - LilyPond will be called to compile your file in the background while you are working, and the PDF preview is updated automatically
- compile on save
- a lot of bugfixes

This release should be available from jEdit plugin repository in 1-2 weeks - I'm waiting for bugreports until that :)

One feature left

Just a quick followup.
I'm now working on an "Instant preview" feature which will make lilypond create the PDF in the background while you are working on the score.
When that's finished, I release a new version of LilyPondTool.
