The “songs” pack­age has un­der­gone many re­vi­sions since ver­sion 2.14, and has now reached a new ma­jor re­lease 3.0. New fea­tures in­clude: * New \pagepre­ludes page for­mat al­lows one song per page, with page-width ti­tle cen­tered above a multi-col­umn song body. * Cus­tomiz­able echo parts and me­ter num­bers. * New in­dex-gen­er­a­tion script is writ­ten en­tirely in Lua and can be launched via texlua. (So no more wrestling with au­to­build or C com­pil­ers to run the in­dexer.) * Im­proved com­pat­i­bil­ity with mod­ern and legacy LaTeX en­vi­ron­ments and many other LaTeX pack­age's. * Many bug fixes. As al­ways, de­tailed change his­to­ries and as­sorted doc­u­men­ta­tion can be found at the of­fi­cial web site: http://songs.source­forge.net

  • au­to­matic trans­po­si­tion;
