Musescore 3.2.3 (current release) for MX 17/18 and 19. A known issue is that the plugins can't be built for MX 17/18, but IDK how important those are to the functionality. It's headed to the test repo along with updated soundfonts.

I didn't see this in the Package Requests Status 17/18 area ...

Just want to be sure that the report that it's working fine is logged.

Thanks!

Working on the various xfce4-plugins that aren't part of the official release but which have had a new release in the last few weeks.

I noticed there's also a newer xfce4-notifyd than we currently have for MX 19 in upstream Debian. Did you want to do that while you're at it?

New xfce4-weather-plugin 0.10.0, which adds back the sunrise/set times for the gtk3 version, if Tim doesn't already have it.

Go ahead & take it.
These plugins are tedious. The github doesn't have configure files built - you have to run ./autogen.sh (no --autoreconf doesn't work) and doing it in rules doesn't always let the compile finish. You have to have all the dependencies installed for autogen.sh to work properly and between the last gtk2 version & the new gtk3 ones, of course those have changed...
I'm getting the deps right, running ./autogen.sh, then repacking the source tarball. Apparently the Xfce4 team did that for the release bundle packages because they have the configure & Make files that aren't in git.

I just wanted to thank you guys for all of your hard work in providing us with new, and newer versions of existing, packages for MX. It's much appreciated!
