Release Notes 2.2.1
|Audacity 2.2.1 was released on XX Month 2017.
Changes since previous version
You can optionally change the colorway of the waveforms displayed in your project. The setting is per track and not per project so you can have multiple colorways in the same project as in the image below.
Four colorways are available with the color selection made from the dropdown menu in the track's Track Control Panel.
When we made the menu changes for 2.2.0 we introduced an entry into the File menu called "Save Other" which led to a sub-menu for exporting various audio formats.
Many users were confused by this change and found it hard to find where they could export audio from. So for 2.2.1 we have changed that menu entry to be.
We fixed a bug on Mac that caused Audacity to crash with certain Chain files. Plus we fixed another Mac bug whereby opening a second project from Mac's Finder produced a second inaccessible instance of Audacity
- Audacity 2.2.1 requires the CPU to support the SSE2 instruction set which should be available on any Intel hardware produced after 2001 and any AMD hardware produced after 2003. To check what SSE levels your CPU supports, you can install CPU-Z. If your hardware only supports SSE, you may download Audacity 2.0.6 (ZIP, not installer) by clicking this link.
- 2.2.0 does not officially support Windows XP.
