[Apologies for multiple postings]

Strasheela is a highly expressive constraint-based music composition 
system. Users declaratively state a music theory and the computer 
generates music which complies with this theory. A theory is formulated 
as a constraint satisfaction problem (CSP) by a set of rules 
(constraints) applied to a music representation in which some aspects 
are expressed by variables (unknowns). Music constraint programming is 
style-independent and is well-suited for highly complex theories (e.g. 
a fully-fledged theory of harmony). Results can be output into various 
formats including MIDI, Lilypond, and Csound.

The installation instructions and other documentation have been 
revised. Support for more output formats has been added, namely ENP and 
Fomus, thus allowing export to Finale and Sibelius. Other extensions 
have been added, and bugfixes have been made.
