This is a page for James and Peter to record their wish lists for 2.3.1. This wish lists is for typically small features that are not hard to do. That's because 2.3.1 is likely to be mainly a continuation of the war on bugs.

See also:



  • Bug 1366 Using the sliders in Mixer Toolbar in a Project-2 alters levels in on-going recording (or playback) in Project-1
  • Proposal new Zoom Toolbar: separate off the zoom controls from the Edit Toolbar - and increase zoom functionality P4 Bug #864
  • Searchable Manual - this is long overdue
  • Bug #1462 Timer Record does not check that there is sufficient space for Export
  • Save/export the History (see Wiki>Feature Requests)

Peter's WIBN list



  • Done.png Much more bug reduction. The 20% live bugs target is more ambitious than it looks, given how many passes we have already done to close easier bugs.
  • Done.png Audio code clean up. The code is in big functions which need to be broken up into smaller more logical ones.

James' WIBN LIst

See Category:Proposal and sort by champion.

  • Unified splash dialog. The mess and multiple clicking is increasingly annoying me.
  • Click fixing. We still have too many.
  • Recreate export multiple using scripting, so that we have the full functionality of it in script and hence greater opportunity to adapt the pipeline adding steps on the way. In particular provide automatic naming.
  • Complete the resizability of toolbars. For example we should be able to make the edit toolbar 2 units high.
  • 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.
