2. Changes since version 2.0.4:
2. Changes since version 2.0.5:
Bug fixes for:
* Shaped dither was corrupted and too loud on all stereo exports except FLAC.
* Keyboard Preferences: some Edit and Align commands for different sub-menus
showed the same name.
* Recordings stopped with "Stop and Set Cursor" shortcut could not be undone.
* In locales that use comma for decimal separator:
* Text boxes with slider in Nyquist effects only produced whole numbers
when using comma to enter a fractional number. Text boxes without
slider still have this problem.
* Built-in generators produced silence after running a Nyquist effect.
* (Windows) When first changing to Windows WASAPI host, the input volume slider
in Mixer Toolbar was enabled when it should have been permanently disabled.
* (Windows) On some machines, launching Audacity then recording from the current
Device Toolbar input would not record until the input was reselected.
* (OS X) Frequent crashes occurred on importing audio files on some machines.
* (OS X) Files did not open using Finder "Open with", double-clicking the
file or dragging the file to the Audacity icon.
* (Linux 64-bit) Fixed a crash when using Equalization.
* Interface:
* Region Restore did not restore the region after using Preferences.
* Dragging selections with the keyboard or Selection Toolbar digits
was very slow.
* (Windows) Help > About Audacity crashed when run in Magyar language.
* (OS X) Some full and reduced Menu Bar items were not translated.
* (OS X and Linux) Fixed various interface crashes.
* (Linux) It was not possible to open an effect or other dialog then navigate
through the dialog using TAB.
* Effects:
* Reverb and Paulstretch were missing from Chains.
* Analyze > Contrast could report very inaccurate rms levels.
* Noise Removal: Attack and decay times were half as long as set.
* (OS X and Linux) Nyquist effects ran much more slowly than on Windows.
* (Linux) The Play shortcut did not play a read-directly WAV, AIFF or FLAC
import if the warning for importing uncompressed files appeared.
* Click or drag on the Timeline after Loop Play continued to loop.
* Transcription Toolbar did not play slower than 0.1x speed.
* (Linux) Audacity did not build if python 2 was not available.
Changes and Improvements:
* Tracks Menu:
* The separate commands that aligned track start or end with the cursor or
with selection start are combined into "Cursor/Selection Start" commands.
* "Align and Move Cursor" renamed to "Move Selection when Aligning".
* Label Tracks:
* Labels Editor now allows empty labels to be saved on closing the editor.
* TAB and SHIFT+TAB when the label track has focus now always move forwards
or backwards respectively to the nearest label.
* (Windows) On a very few machines, the Windows WDM-KS low latency audio host
introduced in Audacity 2.0.4 caused Audacity to hang or the computer to
crash. WDM-KS has been removed from 2.0.5 until it can be safely enabled.
* (Windows and OS X) Screen reader improvements for Install VST Effects dialog.
* (OS X) Audio Unit plug-ins detected by Audacity on launch are now not loaded
until chosen from the Effect menu. This should speed up launch and avoid
crashes at launch due to misbehaving Audio Units.
* (Linux) Update to PortAudio r1910 fixes memory and other bugs under ALSA.
* Interface:
* Edit Menu: "Cut" and "Delete" are now in the top level of the menu.
* Transport Menu now includes "Play/Stop" and "Play/Stop and Set Cursor"
(use Keyboard Preferences to create shortcuts for "Play" and "Stop").
* Tracks Menu now includes "Mix and Render to New Track".
* Track Drop-Down Menu now has Move Track To Top and Move Track To Bottom.
* New right-click menu choice "Delete Label" to remove single labels.
* "Snap To" now offers choice of snap to the "closest" or "prior" position.
Note: the previous "Snap To On" keyboard shortcut will no longer work.
* "Snap To" settings are now independent for each project.
* (Linux) Applied fix for wxGTK 2.8.12 bug which resulted in loss of Audacity's
menu bar (or visual corruption under Unity) on Debian-based systems.
* Effects:
* Truncate Silence: redesigned with simpler option "Truncate Detected
Silence" to shorten to the specified length without compressing silence.
* VST effects: New "Settings" dialog lets you specify buffer size (for
faster processing) and enable buffer delay compensation (to prevent
inserted silence). Compensation may cause a crash in a few plug-ins.
* VST effects now support standard FXP presets.
* LV2 effects are now supported on all platforms (textual interface only).
* Import or export using FFmpeg now requires FFmpeg 1.2 or later (or libav
0.8 or later). For recommended downloads of recent FFmpeg please visit:
http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_installation_and_plug_ins.html#ffdown .
* New Tamil translation (largely complete).
* (Windows) FLAC exports can now exceed 2 GB in size.
* (OS X) Easier Audacity installation using the DMG: drag the Audacity folder
to the /Applications shortcut,
* (OS X) Audacity 2.0.6 will not officially support OS X 10.10 Yosemite when
released (in particular, Apple Audio Units may not open in Audacity).
* (Linux) Self-compiled builds of Audacity now search for system LADSPA
effects in /usr/lib/ladspa, .
