Yes and no. MusE 0.6.3 has score features but not 0.7.0. MusE's main author,
Werner Schweer, thought it a dead end and removed the support. Instead he
started a separate project http://mscore.sf.net that probably will be
reincorporated some day.
Rosegarden is probably your best bet if you want to start from score. I guess
it would be possible to use something like noteedit to enter score and then
export to midi, but it seems more complicated.

No idea what happened, though with respect to it's size I'd say it died
because of lack of money. ;-)
There's still www.hammersound.net with some great fonts.
