Daniel Ángel Romero Senior editor

The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 1.5
OpenSong 1.5.1 is a program to manage lyrics, chords, lead sheets and projections. This program was specially developed to fit the needs of Christian churches. The songs library that´s bulked with the program contains Christian songs only.
There are versions of OpenSong available to run on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux. By using this program you will be able to prepare sheet with lyrics and chords, in order to print them and distribute them between the people in a church. You can include tempo, keys, signatures and lyrics, among with other information you wish to include. You will also be able to build a slide show with the lyrics of the song you will be singing, along with inspiring background images. You can choose the images you want to include, as well as the seconds that the image will stay on screen, the transition effect it will use when appearing and disappearing. You can, of course, choose the order in which the slides will be shown. In the developer´s page you will find links to download more songs, and some extra tools to be used with this program, such as language packs and other utilities.

What's new in version 2.1

- It addresses some show-stopping bugs.

What's new in version 2.0 beta

This is mainly a bug fix release. Most notably this release addresses how OpenSong handles non-existent Document folders. OpenSong will now attempt to create the folders, or continue to run with limited functionality if the folders cannot be created.
Automation API for remote control purposes using REST over HTTP and/or WebSocket.

What's new in version 1.7

Several fixes and improvements for tab processing:
- tabs at the beginning of a slide now also work
- styles with only 1 tabstop location now also work correct
- improved behaviour of character-aligned tabstops
Fix verse display presentation for songs with multiple chorus variants like C1 V1 C2 V2 C2 V3 C2
Add option in presentation settings to export snapshots of the slides that are presented as an image to a file
Decrease height of lbl_the_question in InputBox.Message to make push buttons visible again
Complete the fix for bug 3117855 by correcting issue with quick lookup with extended Latin-1 characters in book name. Requires change to the regular expression that parses the citation, so by creating a new key in the preferences file, biblefactory/useoldregex and setting it to true, the old regular expression will be used
Add option to turn off reversing the Bold attribute on the font used to print chorus lyrics
Misc. Mac stability fixes
Fix bible indexing issue where the first word in the first verse of the first chapter would be added to the index but the reference wouldn't be
Fix bible indexing issue where UTF-8 characters would be dropped from the index incorrectly
Fix bible indexing issue for bibles with newline characters
Improve set item reordering - quick drag-and-drop could mess up the synchronisation between set list and contents window. This still can happen - looks like an RB issue, although you need to try harder now.
Added an option to force 4:3 preview mode on wide or portrait screens. This allows correct presentation preparation for 4:3 screens on a monitor with a different aspect ratio. This option can be enabled on the Presentation Settings dialog. See the tab 'options' under 'Screens'. It is now also possible to make the Presentation Helper window even smaller.
Added next slide preview in presentation helper window.
Fix for CCLI song number reporting for presented songs
Fix in set item selection
