Peter 18Jul16: This is a page to act as a workbench for my testing on W10 and macOS.

Some DEVEL FIXMADE bugs get "parked" by me as they involve downloading plug-ins from sites I know nothing about - I am not prepared to risk that.

See the Talk page for bugs resolved in earlier releases.


  • P4 1215 - Incorrect splits produced by Change Tempo with leading whitespace
  • P3 2534 - Change Speed merges selected clip with adjacent clips - residual remains for handling of white space
  • P3 2083 - Labels Editor has confusing selection interface - can cause wrong labels to be deleted - reopened for residuals



Devel Fix-Made


Parked - because I don't have the wherewithal to test these


To be tested


What's to be done about this/these

  • P2 2437 - Mac: "Open with" fails when Audacity is running - OK on my Big Sur Mac and Cliff's Mojave Mac - fails on Bill's Catalina Mac
  • P3 2527 - Reset Configuration does not reset Project rate or selection timers

The Bugs tested so far on Windows and that look to be good to go so far on W10 - still to be tested on macOS and Linux


The Bugs to be tested on macOS

The Bugs tested so far and that look to be good to go so far on W10 and macOS still to be tested on Linux


  • P1 2628 - Linux: FAT/FAT32 drives can wrongly have projects saved to them

  • P3 2639 - Sound Activated Recording level depends on Input Meter options
  • P3 2517 - Mix Stereo To Mono incorrectly changes sample rate to Project Rate without resampling - it should resample to the project rate
