11 May 2008:

  • Final preparations were made for release of 1.3.5 Beta on 8 May. A provisional fix was made for a wxWidgets problem that prevented dialogues being escaped, and fixes made for two problems in the project rate list box. Especial thanks to Vaughan for his efforts here as time pressed.
  • Discussions reaffirmed we should make the significant changes needed for 1.3.6a1 to appear at the end of May as our first ever modular .dll release. 1.3.6 will also be a "first" in using wxWidgets 2.8.7. This will be the first of a number of 1.3.6 "alpha" releases this summer as new features are progressively added by our Google Summer of Code 2008 (GSoC) students.
  • Strings for web site translations are still not being consistently created when we make changes to our web site . Richard is on the case and thinks we should move some of the documentation to our file release system to make space.
  • There have been some good discussions on Audacity's "select all audio if none selected" behaviour, and on Mark's GSoC project for Label Track Enhancements. The liveliest discussion of all has been about Jorge Rodriguez' idea to implement non-destructive effects stacks. He has now produced a proof of concept patch for evaluation.


04 May 2008:

  • We were busy tracking down various accessibility bugs in preparation for a 1.3.5 release candidate, while Michael Schwendt gave us a patch to fix a sym-link security issue.
  • Paul Livesey started creating nightly Mac builds, uploading to Leland's server; he is looking into providing nightly Windows builds.
  • Web site translations have not been properly appearing, but some progress was made re-instating them. We were still working with Sourceforge to get our -users and -feedback mailing lists working again.
