Adrian has committed the changes for note value quantity for tuplets to be a structured object instead of using the duration microsyntax, and the changes for note pitch to use a structured object containing the step, octave and optional alter value instead of using the pitch microsyntax. The lion’s share of the work was updating all of the examples, since all of the examples contain many pitches.
With these changes, we have completed the project to eliminate the remaining microsyntaxes in MNX (discussion #293). While we were verifying this, we decided that we can now eliminate the page about parsing microsyntaxes, and noticed also that the Styling an MNX document page still uses the old XML-based format, so Adrian will take care of these next.
For the remainder of the meeting, we discussed issue #288, concerning the former accidental element of the note object. Following broadly in the footsteps of Myke’s proposal, we have settled on a new accidentalDisplay object in the note object which will have three boolean key/value pairs, show, editorial and cautionary. Adrian will work on the specification and examples for this ahead of the next meeting.
The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday 31 August 2023.
