Veranderingen voor v2.2.1 RC2 - v2.2.1 RC3

  • Improvements
  • * Waveform colorways
  • You can optionally change the colorway of the waveforms displayed in your project.
  • The setting is per track and not per project so you can have multiple colorways
  • in the same project.
  • * "Save Other" reverts to "Export" in the File menu
  • When we made the menu changes for 2.2.0 we introduced an entry into the File menu
  • called "Save Other" which led to a sub-menu for exporting various audio formats.
  • Many users were confused by this change and found it hard to find where they could
  • export audio from. So for 2.2.1 we have changed that menu entry to be File > Export.
  • Bug Fixes
  • * Release 2.2.1 is mainly a maintenance release.
  • Soon after the release of 2.2.0 we discovered some problematical bugs in Audacity:
  • Bug #1767 - Opening a second project from Mac's Finder produces a second
  • inaccessible instance of Audacity
  • Bug #1770 - Crash applying certain chain files
  • Bug #1783 - Preview fails when selection extends before zero
  • Bug #1787 - Auto-scroll stopped working in 2.2.0
  • Bug #1765 - Using File > Open to import audio gives wrong zoom level
  • and no scroll bar slider



Veranderingen voor v2.1.3 - v2.2.0

  • Improvements
  • * Four Selectable themes provided, with new 'Light' theme as default, plus option to customize
  • * Many menu changes:
  • * Menus Reorganized

  • * Help buttons ? in Preferences, Effects, Generators and Analyzers - and other places
  • * Non-Graying out of effects when no selection (and explanatory dialog with help button)
  • * Playback of MIDI (and Allegro) files imported into Note Tracks is now available.
  • * 'Center' option in Selection Toolbar
  • * Stem plots
  • * Major overhaul to documentation/manual including many new images and streamlined text on landing pages for in-program help.
  • Other Changes
  • * Append-record is now the default (use Shift + Record for old behavior,
  • to record on a new track)
  • * The Esc key now cancels all click-and-drag actions. It also chooses among overlapping mouse click targets, which is especially useful in the Multi-Tool.
  • * Sync-Lock button removed (use menu item or keyboard shortcut instead)
  • * New preferences and preference pages
  • * Overhaul of much code:
  • * Overhaul of envelope handling code to deal with some anomalies
  • * Overhaul of exception handling for greater safety
  • * New Logo
  • Bug Fixes
  • * Major work on bug fixing. 198 bugs that were in 2.1.3 were fixed for 2.2.0.
  • * The most serious bug fixed this time round was bug 437 which was about what happens when Audacity is recording and runs out of storage.
  • * Most of the bugs fixed were more minor, such as bug 463 which was about a case in which the numbering on the timeline could display
  • incorrect times.

  • * Timer Record now saves recordings automatically into an existing project.

  • GNOME Flashback interface or under Unity if you open Audacity with the
  • UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 environment variable. Audacity compiled from source

  • Playback and rendering was significantly inaccurate, creating audible and visual glitches.
  • Accessibility
  • The mnemonics character "&" was read out by screen readers in most of the Preferences choices.

  • Vertical scale added with options for linear and logarithmic display and interpolation.
  • Upper and lower speed limits will now be remembered when saving and reopening a project in 2.0.3. Warp points in projects saved by previous Audacity versions will be correctly restored in 2.0.3.

  • Adjustable Fade (accessible effect for creating partial fades and adjustable fade shapes).
  • Bass and Treble (replaces Bass Boost).

  • Compilation
  • CMake is required in order to build libsoxr.



Veranderingen voor v2.0.1 - v2.0.2

  • Bug fixes
  • Interface
  • "Retain labels" Interface Preference did not retain labels for a region that snapped exactly to both label edges.
  • Projects did not save the track selected state.
  • (OS X, Linux) Timer Record: Interlinking of the Start, End and Duration controls was broken.
  • (Windows) JAWS screen-reader did not read the "Draw curves" and "Graphic EQ" radio buttons in Equalization correctly.
  • Envelopes and Clips
  • Exporting (or any render operation) on a track containing split lines could create clicks at the split lines.
  • Effects and Analysis
  • Normalize could crash if the track name contained "%".

  • Importing a labels file writes the file name to the name of the Label Track, and exporting a labels file offers the name of the last Label Track in the project.
  • Removed the "Audio cache" option from Directories Preferences due to frequent crash reports. All data operations will now be written to disk and not to RAM.
  • Removed the FFmpeg "On-Demand" option from Libraries Preferences (this fixes Audacity not building if configured --without-ffmpeg).

  • Clips did not drag to another track if mouse was over a selection.
  • Mixer Board: Rendering four tracks resulted in a redundant Track Strip followed by a crash.

  • Exporting to WAV or AIFF led to a "Libsndfile says" error or corrupted output due to order of metadata in imported files.
  • (Mac) Fixed crashes importing MP3 files on PPC machines.
  • (Linux Ubuntu) .Aup files could not be associated with Audacity (they opened in the web browser instead).

  • New Device Toolbar to manage inputs and outputs. Timer Record feature. New Mixer Board view with per-track VU meters.
  • Automatic Crash Recovery in the event of abnormal program termination.
  • Fast "On-Demand" import of WAV/AIFF files if read directly from source. FLAC now fully supported. Added support for optional FFmpeg library for import/export of AC3/M4A/WMA and import of audio from video files.

  • MP2 files were not importable without FFmpeg library or an import rule.
  • Files that could only be imported using FFmpeg imported as noise with no error message if FFmpeg was not available.

  • Plot Spectrum didn't preserve signal level if multiple tracks were analyzed.
  • Other bug fixes:
  • Audacity has been provisionally fixed so that it can no longer create block files longer than the sample format or project format allows, and can no longer delete these, which led to data loss. Any overlong blocks found are preserved but "orphaned", so will appear as silence.
  • Orphan block files were wrongly reported if cutting or copying to the clipboard then reopening the project in the same session.
  • Fixed some crashes and incorrect movement of audio when dragging tracks.
  • (Windows) Data loss is now prevented when encountering a corrupted .aup file created in ANSI builds.

  • Spectrograms now allow window sizes up to 32768 and frequencies up to half the sample rate (the maximum possible).
  • Mix and Render now preserves clip length by not rendering white space between time zero and first audio, and preserves audio before time zero. To retain silence before the audio starts, generate silence after render.
  • Grouped some Edit Menu items into "Remove Audio" and "Clip Boundaries".
  • CleanSpeech Mode removed from Interface Preferences (it still runs if it was enabled in a previous Audacity but can only be turned off there).

  • (Linux) Set the per-user files directory per the program name set in configure.
  • (Linux) Changed the default location of the Audacity temporary directory to be in /var/tmp not /tmp, so preserving the directory between reboots.
