track.
* Audacity mod-script-pipe for driving Audacity from Python now comes with
Audacity and can be enabled via preferences.
* Options and preferences:
* Type to Create a Label is now off by default.
* A plug-in installer for Nyquist now provides a file browser for
selecting '.NY' files to install.
