1. Install

There are two sets of releases for LilyPond: stable releases, and unstable development releases. Stable versions have an even-numbered ‘minor’ version number (i.e. 2.8, 2.10, 2.12, etc). Development versions have an odd-numbered ‘minor’ version number (i.e. 2.7, 2.9, 2.11, etc).

Building LilyPond is a very involved process, so we highly recommend using the precompiled binaries.
