Recordare now has version 5.1 maintenance updates available for both the Dolet 5 for Finale and Dolet 5 for Sibelius plug-ins. The Dolet 5.1 for Finale update was just released today, and includes a dozen new features and fixes compared to version 5.0.
The Dolet 5.1 for Sibelius update was released back in October, but I missed blogging about it. It now supports Sibelius 6.1, which added ManuScript support for many new features, including document setup and selected engraving rules. So version 5.1 exports much more score formatting from Sibelius 6.1 than has been possible in the past. Sibelius 6.1 also runs plug-ins 2 or 3 times faster than previous Sibelius versions, and most Dolet users will really notice this difference.
These updates are free for current Dolet 5 customers. Both plug-ins are available at the Recordare Online Store, with upgrade discounts available for Dolet 4 users. These updates take another step forward in making digital sheet music interchange between different music programs as seamless and accurate as possible.
