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.


  • P2 2663 - Audacity can make unwanted moves of toolbars



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 2700 - "Failed to open the project database"
  • P2 2732 - Faux recovery offered on launch (very moonphase)
  • P2 2734 - Apply macro may not create the macro-output folder in the source directory

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
