(Joe) Sibelius 8.4.2 now available!
Posted by Joe @ Sibelius - 23 Aug 05:37PM (edited 31 Aug 05:36PM)
Hi Everyone,

Today we're releasing Sibelius 8.4.2. Sam has had to unexpectedly take some time off today, but he drafted the announcement below for you all earlier this week. I hope you enjoy the new update! Let me know if you have any questions. Joe



Hi All,

I'm pleased to let you know that we are today releasing Sibelius 8.4.2 for all Sibelius users with active subscriptions and upgrade plans. The updated installers are now available from Avid Application Manager. We'll be updating everyone's Avid Accounts with the new downloads very shortly too. The update is recommended for all Sibelius 8 customers and includes the following improvements:

* A problem where hidden text was shown when printing or exporting to PDF has been fixed
* The spacing between clefs, key signatures, time signatures and start repeat lines has been improved
* Sibelius no longer crashes when clicking on 'Detailed View' in the Ideas panel
* Sibelius no longer crashes when exiting from viewing a video in full screen mode (macOS Sierra only)
* The staff size is now shown in Edit Instruments > Edit Staff Type
* The top crashing issue from Sibelius 8.4 has also been addressed

In addition to this, we have made improvements to the sizes of Ossia Staves. Since Sibelius 8.4, we introduced the ability to have two further staff sizes (Medium and X-Small). The sizes of Ossia staves from 8.4.2 are now two smaller than the size of the parent stave where possible, for example:

Normal parent -> Small ossia
Medium parent -> X-Small ossia
Small parent -> X-Small ossia
X-small parent -> X-small ossia

Sibelius 8.4.2 also comes with the latest version of Avid Application Manager, version 2.5.8, which now includes a silent install option, providing a much smoother and more streamlined update experience.

Work on Sibelius 8.5, our iOS app and improvements to Sibelius Cloud Publishing continue, and we're looking forward to sharing more about those projects in due course.

Sam

Hi Joe,

Tried to login to my App Man and spinning beachball. I quit it and restarted and it's fine.

Do I also start AvidAppManHelper app?

The vs. for the AppMan on the Application Manager is 2.5.6.12065. Is that the one I want?

I ask because the Sibelius vs on App Man is 8.4.1.111 and on my Avid Master Account page it is 8.4.1. installer.

I don't see 8.4.2 available anywhere?

Thx, let me know when and where to look.
====
PS I see that Application Manager v2.5.8 is available w/auto renewal feature.

How do I download that?

This should be managed automatically so no need to launch/quit it yourself except for troubleshooting purposes.

>

You should be able to get the update from AppMan 2.5.6, download the new update, and

Correct, we're updating everyone's Avid Accounts right now! Won't be long. I'll post back when they're ready.

It's included with 8.4.2, however if you're experiencing problems with AppMan that prevent you getting that far then you can download it directly from:

Thanks, Joe

Fixing the printing of text with embedded tildes (~) was really great.

I see that the problem of selecting a double barline and rehearsal mark totether and then alt clicking to copy it keeps the barline and RM together again, which is also a good thing.

Thanks for putting out an interim release.

Hi Joe, It's still not showing check boxes correctly on Mac on various places like in image.
Also with inspector pinned. It's really hard to see which boxes are checked.

1. Go to my.avid.com
2. Log in
3. Go to My Products and Subscriptions
4. Find Sibelius, and then click the Product Details and Download Links button to expand the list
5. You'll find the Sibelius 8.4.2 downloads at the very top of the list

Hi Jesper - yes we're aware of this one, it's actually been like that for a while. This will be fixed when we release a version of Sibelius based on Qt5. Currently Sibelius is built on Qt4. It's a large piece of work that has been in progress for well over a year now!

I was hoping this might magically be true but I just tried it and it's not fixed. We weren't able to get this in to this particular release but I have it, provisionally speaking, slated for our next update.

Huh - I would have sworn I had gotten that to work, but trying it now it fails, both with alt-click and pasting from the clipboard.

Sorry to have raised false hopes :(

I click on the the disc image and it takes ages to verify, but only after several attempts. Now the installer shows and it also being verified, but nothing happens.It hangs.
The screen stays on ''verifying install Sibelius''. At the moment
I cannot install the update.
Is this a problem with MacOS10.11.6 ?

Thanks Robin for the tip, but this also did not work.
I tried double clicking again on the disc image and the ''verifying''
procedure started. After five minutes the Sibelius install app appeared. I double clicked on this and at first nothing happens.
Again after five minutes the installation process started so I was able to install the update
This is annoying(also happened with the 8.4.1.

These are download errors: delete those files and start again. Configure the power options on the Mac so that it does not go to sleep or standby during the download.

I have Sibelius 8.4.2. Since 2002, I've used Sibelius 2, 3, 4, 7, and 8.

Has anyone noticed that in Sibelius 8, somebody went in and CHANGED EVERYTHING so it takes an obscene amount of time now to perform the basic tasks that were always so easy?
