- Harmony plot axes are now sorted according to the circle of fifths, both in the MPS UI and PDF analysis reports
- Added export of note/rest/measure count analysis data
- Added export of instrument-related analysis data
- Improved capitalization of analysis result folder, report folder and report file name.
- Progress view is automatically opened for potentially long-running jobs
- Added documentation for analysis results browser view
- Added overview table for all available analysis features in the documentation
- Added documentation for algorithmic composition and crossover features

- Analysis result view in MPS can now generate plots even if CSV file data is escaped for LaTeX processing
- Score option “Omit Short Instrument Names” only worked for non-percussion instruments, this now affects percussion staves as well
- Added automatic adjustment of
short-indent in LilyPond files if short instruments name overflow pages
- Fixed a problem regarding measure alignment in context layer models

- Fitness function configurations were not found when running an evolutionary composition for the first time. The related resource refresh problem was fixed.
- The capitalization of folder and file names was adjusted for analysis result folders (
*_Analysis) and analysis report folders/files (
*_Analysis_Report). If you have existing anylsis folders containing
_report and re-run re-run analysis jobs, an error will occur because Eclipse resource names are not case-sensitive. In this case, you have to either rename your resource names to
_Report, respectively, or delete the existing folders before you run the analysis or report generation again.
