How good is it for classical guitar notation, and also lute tablature? Sibelius (I have v.6) it terrible for lute tab, especially for the low bass notes (diapasons) below the tab stave.

Seems like the Ubuntu PPA has not been updated yet.

To me it seems as good as Sibelius for guitar staff notation and better than Sibelius for lute tablature. The renaissance lute tablature font I have used looks really neat and you can enter sounding diapasons. Forum member cadiz kindly provided written instructions for this here: viewtopic.php?f=75&t=116135&p=1236039#p1236039 when MuseScore 2.1 was released and I'm sure they will work in version 2.2

Slight diversion: Does anyone know how to make a score with no time signature in Musescore? These Satie pieces I'm transcribing have literally no bar lines.

This is perhaps an esoteric complaint much like my previous Musescore complaints about midi entry or voice re-assignment, but on 2.1 I didn't quite get the third voice to be clearly separate from the second. In professional editions the note heads and stems would be slightly off rather than vertically under each other. Perhaps there's a tweak I haven't discovered

by the way, if this is in the cafe will it disappear in the future? It would be a shame, can you move it to composer's workshop or any other notation software appropriate forum?

One way is to:
Create a new score of a single bar, say 4/4.
Create a new time signature in the master pallette e.g. 100/4 (or whatever you need) and drag it onto the existing 4/4 time signature.
Right click on the new 100/4 time signature and select 'time signature properties'
Delete the 100 and 4 in the Appearance window.

You should now have a single bar of whatever length you need with no time signature.

Open the Inspector panel (F8) and add a horizontal/vertical offset with Chord.

Slighty off topic, but is there software that can make a score from an audio recording? Thank you!
