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.





Devel Fix-Made


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


To be tested

  • P4 653 - Metadata: UTF-16 ID3 tags read incorrectly
  • P4 353 - FFmpeg: Metadata - Artist tag not imported in WMA and APE files
  • P4 2424 - Linux/Mac: Malformed choice widget in MIDI Device Preferences
  • P3 2322 - Mac: Screenshot tool captures the screenshot dialog overlaying the required image
  • P4 2497 - Windows: text can be pasted into the project rate box

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
  • P5 866 - FFmpeg: Audacity rejects FFmpeg in PATH/doesn't search PATH if invalid libs are in FFmpeg path - I don't want to mess with my FFmpeg config
  • P3 1572 - Dither not applied when exporting 24-bit WAV from 32-bit float
  • P4 1441 - Mac: Imported file names containing '/' or "\" change the slash to ':' in the trackname (and in the project window header)
  • P4 565 - Metadata: ID3 v2.4 tags in imported MP3 files are not seen so are removed on export - Leland thinks this is NOT-A-BUG

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
