Headline Features (held over)

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

  • Export Multiple - More flexibility in automatic naming.


Operating system support

  • Audacity 2.2.0 is planned to be the final version for OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. It may even be that 2.1.3 was the last Snow Leopard release.

Won't be reported on

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

  • Extra line between quick-play and scrubbing ruler
  • Customisable spectrogram colours
  • If writing on meter bar would have low contrast, add a background to the numbers.
  • New option to blend a theme with the OS theme.
  • Default icons/colours for certain icons/colours that were not provided.
  • Easier adjustment of custom themes thanks to borders round the component images.
  • Preparation for HiDPI (scale down the images in the cache)
  • Hover effect for microphone/speakers on meter bar.
  • Space saving rearrangement in recording prefs.
  • Remove concept of left and right wave types, and instead use stereo panned left or panned right.
  • Many wordings and accelerators updated.


Build/Infrastructure


RM's list

  • Patches to wxWidgets need to be better documented. What is each patch for? Need to be applied to our GitHub copy of wxWidgets too.
  • Update workarounds for wxWidgets page, and track any reports back via wxWidgets Trac.
  • Linux ASSERT Issues Not addressed yet to a safe level. We need code to guarantee we are building with patched wxWidgets under linux, I think.
  • Pulse Audio issue leads to plan to keep sound card steams open.
  • Silent write failure on disk full is reported on Wikipedia and needs to be cleared.



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.

Bugs Addressed in this Release

There are lots of tables here with information about work done on bugs for this version.

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

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

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

Already seem to be making promises for 2.2.0

  • "We'll look into more unicode use during development of 2.2.0"
  • Bring new menus from DA into Audacity
    • Peter 21Nov16: don't forget David's new Edit menu entries
      1. Store Cursor Position
      2. Select>Cursor to Saved Cursor Position
  • Bring (option of) Dark Theme into Audacity.
  • Bug 437 - Paul's extended solution.
  • PULSE Audio. Starting/Stopping.

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

Completed

Other

  • 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

Demos/Experiments

  • Leland's analyze effects whilst recording.
