Audacity 1.2.5 and 1.3.2 have been released

Thanks for visiting. We have officially released these versions.

Thanks to all who left feedback; no extremely serious problems were found. We are working on fixing the envelope and MP3 bugs and hope to release version 1.3.3 soon. If those bugs are affecting you, you can probably find a test version of Audacity in a few days from http://audacity.sourceforge.net/files - just check the "last modified" date of the file to see if it is newer than the version you have.

Problems found

1.3.2rc1 - Mac PPC (ansi) on a Mac Mini 1.42ghz 512ram.

The Envelope tool is misbehaving. On stereo tracks when I tried to use it to create a fade out the tracks are not mirroring as they did in 1.2.4. Never happened in 1.2.4.

screen grab to illustrate

NB This is when I had multiple clips in one track - the feature I've most wanted!

When I saved the file, closed it and re-opened it, all of the shapings were gone, with some set at whatever the quietest I had used and others at the loudest, but only the first as I had left it. Export the file as mp3 results in a corrupt file. Vaguedisclaimer 18:16, 28 October 2006 (PDT)

Additional: re: the "flattened" clips - applying "Fade Out" to one of them, then undoing it restores the clipped to the intended shape. So at least the data is not lost. Vaguedisclaimer 02:34, 29 October 2006 (PST)
Additional 2: Mix and Render seems to have resolved the problem with corrupt mp3s (despite only seeming to re-order the tracks rather than mixing them down to a single stereo track). Vaguedisclaimer 02:50, 29 October 2006 (PST)

PS Here's in the error thrown when I try to open the mp3 in VLC. Don't know it it's useful:

similar problem on win-xp / Audacity ® 1.3.2-beta (ANSI):

 1. only one clip in the project (stereo)
 2. creating fading-points on left track (with multi-tool)
 3. the fading-points created on one track aren't identical with the ones on the other (stereo-)track
(4. mp3-file is valid)

Same problem as Audacity 1.3.2-beta and 1.2.4, exporting files to u-law with a WAV header causes the file to be padded with silence at the end to make the file 27.5 seconds long.
