Version 2.0.6

Improvements

Interface:

  • Redesigned, searchable Keyboard Preferences with Tree, Name and Key views.
  • 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.

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.
  • (Linux) Self-compiled builds of Audacity now search for system LADSPA effects in /usr/lib/ladspa.

Bug Fixes
