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
  • P2 2710 - Compressor with audio before T=0 crashes Audacity



Devel Fix-Made


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

  • P4 2684 - Bitrot for Docimage script - well above my nerd-grade
  • P2 2701 - Progress dialog interferes with scripting
  • P2 2714 - (Japanese & Korean) "Unable to parse project information"

To be tested

  • P2 2676 - Export: Incorrect handling over 0 dB
  • P2 2722 - Noise Gate fails on a one hour stereo selection

What's to be done about this/these

  • P4 2726 - Enh: Some preference changes are not written until Audacity exits - looks OK to me on Win and Mac - but there may be residuals

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
