  • 23rd January 2016. 2.1.3 RM yet to be announced.
  • 30 June 2016. 2.1.3 RM (James) announced.

Planned Release Announcement Text

Audacity 2.1.3 replaces all previous versions.

  • blah
  • blah, blah
  • Fuller details on the changes since 2.1.2 can be found here.
Gale: If this text is reused for the main announcement the links to the Manual will need changing to their o/man equivalent.

Headline Features

  • Extensive work to eliminate memory leaks
  • Upgrade PortAudio to r1966.
  • Windows 10 properly supported.
  • Improved user interface for scrubbing
    • Scrubbing Toolbar
    • Scrub Bar
  • Big improvements to Timer Record:
    • automatic Save and/or Export on completion,
    • optional ability to quit Audacity or (Windows only) shut down/restart the computer on completion.
    • dialogs throughout the Timer Record process have been improved to give more information
    • error handling (warning) on potential disk full situation if Timed Recording would exceed available disk space
    • Confirm dialog added for Stopping recording or Cancelling waiting to start to avoid accidental aborts
  • New Recording preferences for naming of recorded tracks.
  • New option to mix MP3 export to mono.
  • Pinned (fixed and centered) play/record head for playing and recording
  • New Distortion effect (replaces Leveller)
  • Other small changes such as...

Headline Features (held over)

Take these with a big grain of salt... they could be vapourware.

  • Classic Noise Removal available again as optional enabled built-in (A G+ conversation)
Gale 08Mar16: I support improving Noise Reduction rather reintroducing legacy effects. I think the more sensible Noise Reduction defaults have helped to some extent.
  • More compact and more flexible menu on tracks.
  • Color-selectable Spectrogram (later will go when we have theming)
  • Harmonic separation effect.
  • Legacy Theming Support fixed. Possibly even with Theming panel in preferences again, via mod-theme.
  • Export Multiple - More flexibility in automatic naming.

Won't be reported on

These were some pieces of work done that won't be reported on in the release announcement.


  • Work on systematically fixing memory leaks.


  • Donations using "Exquisite Donate"

So is the Manual Release Ready?

This page lists pages that refer to 'ToDo-1' in the manual.

  • Manual team now maintain a div with the manual status on it on the front page.
  • Manual team also maintain a Clean-up Plan for dealing with P1s and critical P2s

So is the Code Release Ready?

This query shows us possibly problematic P1 and P2 bugs right now. If there is a P1 in there, the answer is 'NO'. The P2s need closer examination, and RM may decide that one or more of them block release, even at the last moment. The PXs (if any) might possibly be P1s - so we need to know about them.

2734P2DEVEL - FIX MADEApply macro may not create the macro-output folder in the source directory2734

RM Watchlist

These are bugs the RM is paying particular attention to that usually are not in the list above.

IDPStatusSummary (5 tasks) ID
1244P2RESOLVEDWindows: Vamp: QM 1.7.1 plugins crash Audacity on opening Plug-in Manager.1244
437P2RESOLVEDWrite fails without error message box on disk full437

Bugs Addressed in this Release

There are lots of tables here with information about work done on bugs during this release cycle. There's been a lot of it.

These bugs and fixes probably won't be reported on individually. However we should report on the P2s that we have fixed and summarise the general trend.

Updated in this release cycle

These are bugs which we knew about before we started the release cycle, and have updated, and that are now DEVEL-FIXED or better. Often that will mean we DEVEL-FIXed them in this cycle.

Notes that are relevant to next release.
WIBN= "Wouldn't It Be Nice".

Developer WIBN lists are list of things they are actively looking at. QA/Support WIBN lists are lists of things they are lobbying for. These are aspirational changes. The closer we get to the planned release date the less likely the ones still listed in this section are to be in.

James' WIBN List

  • 276 [P2] Repeatedly start/stopping Pulse Audio. A fix by keeping the audio card open. Also means monitoring persists.
  • Diags - Glitch detection (counting) of overruns and underruns.
  • Diags - Command line options, and run very simple test, e.g. generate DTMF from Travis build to get us started on automated test.
  • Diags - mod-diag as built-in module. Also to help get built-in modules working for other reasons.
  • Diags - mod-diag actually with a GUI window so we can see diags and reset them live.
  • Diags - Automatically generate screenshot for each effects dialog.

James' Notes

General News/Activity

  • Viktor working on (LADSPA?) percussion/harmonic separation effect.
  • Luciano working on spectral colouring.

Enabled / Disabled

This is current status/plan:

  • WDM-KS out (considering a module, but not for 2.1.3 needs work on test support)
  • MIDI_OUT out.
  • Updated PortAudio

Steve's WIBN List

  • 683: Excessive amplification causes NaNs.

Buanzo WIBN List

  • Bugzilla_report, Maths and SoundManager2Button Extensions to wiki.

Gale WIBN List

Vaughan WIBN List

  • Updated Logo/Text (via Chris F).

Paul/Leland WIBN List

Luciano#s WIBN List

  • Customisable spectral colours.

Peter's WIBN list


  • Configurable Mouse Prefs.
  • Far fewer binding prefs set up by default. The most common high value ones only. Instead use import for a fully populated list, if desired. Power users (the people who use all the shortcuts) will typically set up their own.
  • MultiButtons


  • Leland's analyze effects whilst recording.
