M-Tx: Changes in specification

0.30:
- @< and @> uptext adjustments

0.29:
- Word on C: line may start with ? for arpeggio of whole chord
- (( {{ [[ to inhibit melismas
- = in note resets octave to default 
- Uptext lines U:
     @^ @v @=4 @+4 @-4 in U: line similar to lyrics adjustments
       (U: @v actually is Downtext)
     # and % characters for sharp/flat translated to TeX
     Words like mp, sf etc set in \ppff font
     !\bf !\it. etc defines font for uptext, remains in effect till changed
     Note and bar spacers ~ and | as on C: lines
  -x compiler option

0.25:
- Bar symbols | in C: lines to reduce need for ~ spacers
- Braces/parentheses option to distinguish between s and t slurs.
- PMX: preamble option still supported but barely documented.
  Use of %% encouraged instead.
- Meter: preamble option now also accepts PMX-formatted meter words.
- Comma shortcut for 2:1 rhythms.
- Voltas, key changes may now appear in any voice, but only have an
  effect in the bottom voice.  Meter changes MUST still appear in
  all voices.  
- No more modfiles: use Type 4 TeX strings

0.24:
- Nested slurs
- Above/below stave lyrics positioning

0.23:
- Space command allowed in music paragraphs.
- Size command individual for staves.
- )( for slur continuation.
- Option -b to force beams even on vocal lines.

0.21:
- Several extra options added to command line.  This includes switches
  to force M-Tx 0.12 compatibility, and disable chords and lyrics.
- A style library file is read if present.
- More informative error messages for non-existent files.
- Dotted groups treated by default as in PMX 1.12, not as in M-Tx 0.12.  
- Lyrics handled by lyrics paragraphs or by synchronous lyrics lines.
- Temporary second voice on one-voice stave supported. 

0.20:
- Lyrics now handled by Rainer Dunker's musixlyr package.  This makes
  all lyrics adjustments in lyrics lines obsolete.
- Vertical adjustment of lyrics moved to music line, since it is the
  notes, not the lyrics, that dictate where lyrics go.
- Explicit meter change supported.  Support (in 0.12c) for PMX meter 
  change via %% lines withdrawn.
- Passages with many chords can be coded more easily using a separate
  line for chordal notes.

0.12:
- Many improvements to version 0.10.  If you must know, read the 0.10
  manual.
