Hi all,

as planned, here are the binaries I built for the upcoming 2.24.0:

Please give them some final testing, they seem to work fine in my
boring configurations.

I also realized that I forgot to send a draft release announcement
text, which I originally wanted to share during the weekend. I went
with the standard text, copying from the previous stable release:
We are proud to announce the release of GNU LilyPond 2.24.0. LilyPond
is a music engraving program devoted to producing the highest-quality
sheet music possible. It brings the aesthetics of traditionally
engraved music to computer printouts.

This version includes improvements and fixes since the branching of the
previous stable release in October 2020. A list of added features and
other user-visible changes can be found at .
This release switches to Guile 2.2 and features a completely rewritten
infrastructure for creating the official packages, finally allowing us
to offer 64-bit binaries for macOS and Windows.

For the GitLab release and the announcement to the mailing lists, I
would add the following:
Please note that there is a known issue on Windows where compiling very
large scores (several hundreds of pages) can result in crashes. We hope
to address this in a future bugfix release.

Please let me know what you think, I'm sorry that I forgot to share the
text in advance. For the upcoming announcements, the text is very easy
to adapt and I can also rebuild the tarball and binaries, if needed.
