2. Changes since version 2.1.3:

Improvements

* Four Selectable themes provided, with new 'Light' theme as default,
plus option to customize
* Many menu changes:
* Menus Reorganized
* Extended menu bar provided
* New keyboard commands for working with clips
* 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.
