Here is the current status of OpenMusic.

There is already a porting to Linux that is based on OpenMusic version 3 
(current version is version 4) and that is available there: 

The developers who did this porting have been invited at IRCAM in order 
to complete the porting and integrate their work in version 4. This will 
happen later this year (visa take some time).

Meanwhile, I have created the project on sourceforge.net 
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/ircam-openmusic/) but have not entered 
any code yet.

I have little idea about the amount of work that is necessary 1) to 
integrate the Linux porting in version 4 and 2) to complete and debug 
the Linux version.

I'll announce when the sourceforge project is ready so that we can start 
working together.

Thanks for your patience :-)
