the automatic reflow to match screen size is awesome. Congratulations to everyone involved – great work!

> Hello everyone,
> One year after the first presentation of Verovio at the MEC last year in Charlottesville, I would like to give you an update on the progress made this year.
> Several features have been added. Some notable ones include:
> - Chords (thanks to the work of Andrew Horwitz) http://www.verovio.org/features.xhtml?id=chords
> - Critical apparatus, including nested apparati http://www.verovio.org/features.xhtml?id=app
> - Lyrics, including multi-line lyrics and connectors http://www.verovio.org/features.xhtml?id=app
> The work-in-progress on other features (cross-staff notation, mensural notation alignment, etc.) can be seen on the features page.
> The MEI viewer was updated to a version that shows how Verovio can be used in a more responsive environment. In this new viewer, the layout of the music is adjusted to the screen size. The best performance is with Firefox.
> Verovio is now SMuFL compliant. It includes its own font (Leipzig) but can also use the Bravura (Steinberg) or the Gootville (Musescore) fonts. Other fonts can easily be used.
> Behind the scenes: many improvements have been made to the Verovio codebase. They include the use of LibMEI for generating some of the code and the improvement of the SVG output structure. These two modifications make Verovio even closer to MEI. There is also a new Python binding for using it in scripting environments.
> We are aiming for release version 1.0 in the near future. It will include support for MEI timestamp events (for hairpin, dynamics, etc), basic articulations and improved slur positioning, which has not yet been taken care of.
