OpenLP 2.3.2 is the first beta release of the upcoming OpenLP 2.4. This release is been accelerated to move to PyQt5 due to a packaging problem on Debian, Ubuntu, Mint and other Linux distributions.

  • Removed unnecessary ‘?’ help buttons, and fixed the remaining ones
  • Double verses at end of song now show correctly on stageview

  • Songbooks now support multiple songbook entries
  • Fixed various issues with song importers
