And I really support this thread and Sibelius, and hope it is healthy and going strong!!!
Sibelius has moved to a yearly subscription model, and to save development costs they are doing the bare minimum of feature development every year, as little as they feel they can do to get people to renew the yearly subscription, and no more than that.

You can buy the perpetual Sibelius (you want Ultimate, Sibelius is the 'smaller' limited version) also in other (online) shops.
The 2 competitors are Dorico https://new.steinberg.net/dorico/ and Finale https://www.finalemusic.com/
thank you! RC,

I am looking specifically for a an open page, grand stave, with options of interface, mouse, keyboard, iPad pen, though I have heard that is discontinued. That info ...from what company I am not certain, perhaps that was "sourced" from an Apple forum or press release?

any clarification would be great.

As it it is very difficult if not impossible to try out versions at resellers, music stores, what few we have left - i am in the dark as to what interfaces are available. Also I understand that "old school" music writing is being integrated and possibly usurped by other notation input methods and paradigms, i still prefer Guido's thin red line.

sincerely,

M

P.S. will check out links . thank you!

Could that be Notion? That has pen/tablet input and an iPad version, and has not seen real updates (the last have only been to better interface with Studio one only).
You can get a Notion demo version if you register a presonus account.
