Known Major Issues at Release


Here are all the messages that can appear when options are selected...
  • Audacity 2.3.0 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 see the Legacy Windows page on the Audacity Website.
  • 2.3.0 does not support Windows XP.
    • You may try 2.2.2 on XP, but it is unsupported.
macOS / Mac OS X
  • Linux support is tested on Ubuntu Linux.
    • Audacity may compile on Gentoo, Debian, Mint.
    • Audacity does not currently compile on SuSE Linux.
  • Bugs that were Open at time 2.3.0 was released.
  • Bugs that were in Audacity 2.2.2 and that we fixed for 2.3.0
  • Bugs that we fixed during 2.3.0 work, also bugs which we closed, sometimes because the bug was no longer valid, or was being better tracked in some other bug.
Quick Fixed
  • These are bugs that arose during 2.3.0 development and were fixed during 2.3.0 development - so were never seen in a released version of Audacity.
  • This is a complete list of all bugs, irrespective of when they were logged or closed.
Main Issues
  • Bugs that we regard as the main bugs, relevant to most users.
  • Bugs for which we have descriptions of how to work around the bug.


  • Far less of Audacity is properly accessible to visually impaired users than we would like. Currently the best supported platform for accessibility is Windows. We lost a lot of custom accessibility programming when we had to move to a more recent version of the wxWidgets library.


  • Audacity is only partially translated in many languages. We also have some issues, for example, with Right-To-Left Languages.


  • New bugs that we became aware of during work on 2.3.0.


  • These aren't really bugs with Audacity, just things Audacity does not do yet, that we would like to add. Feature Requests are the way we handle most issues of this kind, rather than adding them as bugs into our database.

Dynamic Buglist

The controls below give a custom bug list, allowing you to dig deeper into our list of bugs. You can choose:
  • Window, Mac or Linux bugs
    • OR all Open bugs, OR all bugs fixed in this release OR all bugs closed during this release (including e.g. duplicates and bogus bugs)
    • OR QuickFix (created and fixed in this release) OR Any for a list of all bugs ever recorded.
  • Express interest in Main Issues (the ones we think relevant to most users), Accessibility, Translation, Enhancements, Workarounds, New Issues (issues we found during this release) or 'Any'. These bugs will be shown first.
  • Express interest in low priority bugs. If you choose one of the 'Maybe' choices, you will get a second list of bugs that you can look through by hand, or using Ctrl+F in the browser.
