Thanks once again to everyone in the Music Notation Community Group who has contributed to MusicXML 4.0 development. This release addresses many long-standing issues with the format, and allows MusicXML to better support new types of applications.

Special thanks go out to Adrian Holovaty, who developed the documentation system that we used to produce the new report. His work allowed us to update, simplify, and expand the MusicXML 3.0 documentation that Mark Johnson originally developed at MakeMusic in 2012. The move from Flare to open source tools will make the documentation more maintainable for future versions.
