Changes in Audacity 2.0.6 since version 2.0.5:


* Interface:
  * Redesigned, searchable Keyboard Preferences with Tree, Name and Key views.  
  * Edit Menu: "Cut" and "Delete" are now in the top level of the menu.  
  * Transport Menu now includes "Play/Stop" and "Play/Stop and Set Cursor" 
     (use Keyboard Preferences to create shortcuts for "Play" and "Stop").
  * Tracks Menu now includes "Mix and Render to New Track". 
  * Track Drop-Down Menu now has Move Track To Top and Move Track To Bottom. 
  * New right-click menu choice "Delete Label" to remove single labels.
  * "Snap To" now offers choice of snap to the "closest" or "prior" position.
     Note: the previous "Snap To On" keyboard shortcut will no longer work.   
  * "Snap To" settings are now independent for each project.
* Effects:
  * Truncate Silence: redesigned with simpler option "Truncate Detected 
     Silence" to shorten to the specified length without compressing silence.
  * VST effects: New "Settings" dialog lets you specify buffer size (for 
     faster processing) and enable buffer delay compensation (to prevent
     inserted silence). Compensation may cause a crash in a few plug-ins. 
  * VST effects now support standard FXP presets.  
  * LV2 effects are now supported on all platforms (textual interface only).    
Peter 26Sep14: The Manual states FFmpeg 2.2.2 is required for "latest Audacity" and that is the version on Buanzo's site.
* Import or export using FFmpeg now requires FFmpeg 1.2 or later (or libav
   0.8 or later). For recommended downloads of recent FFmpeg please visit: .
* New Tamil translation (largely complete). 
* (Windows) FLAC exports can now exceed 2 GB in size. 
* (OS X) Easier Audacity installation using the DMG: drag the Audacity folder
   to the /Applications shortcut, 
* (OS X) Audacity 2.0.6 will not officially support OS X 10.10 Yosemite when 
   released (in particular, Apple Audio Units may not open in Audacity).
* (Linux) Self-compiled builds of Audacity now search for system LADSPA 
   effects in /usr/lib/ladspa.
