    Wiki > Wording agreed changes implemented - none for this release

31st May. Making progress. 3xP1, 6xP2. Many new contribs from outside team being reviewed, accepted, rejected. We're behind schedule, and string freeze will probably be delayed.
2nd Jun. 4xP1s. Can't string freeze with these still open, so taking a one week 'slip'. Dates updated accordingly.

  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    9th Jun - String freeze. Audacity.pot updated and sent to translators.

Timeline 2.4.1

  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    22nd Nov 2019 - 2.3.3 released
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    2nd Feb 2020 - RM for 2.4.0 announced (James)
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    28th Feb 2020 - RM notes 5 P1's and 41 P2's

At this stage (28th Feb) we have way too many P1s and P2s to stick to our original schedule. The main concern is additional P1 bugs that we have not bumped into yet in testing. Accordingly taking a one month slip relative to original schedule.

  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    22 March 2020 - RM notes 22 P2s, plus a Covid-19 bug (actually a virus) out in the wild. Too many bugs to meet the revised 1st April String freeze target, but as so much is unclear, not pencilling in a slip yet. It seems we are also finding new serious bugs fast, e.g. a recent P1, Bug 2367, reported by Steve, so it is dangerous to progress to freeze.
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    29 March 2020 - RM notes 21 P2s, and P1 Bug 2367 is DEVL-FIX-MADE but not closed. It has not yet been tested on Linux. Based on trade offs we have to make, now slipping by 1 week, with a string freeze of 8th April.

  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    P1 bugs and certain P2 bugs might further delay releases. See live counts below.

As of 20th April, a ton of bugs fixed; Manual in good state; Build instructions and such needing some work - and testing of very recent fixes.

    22nd Apr - RC01
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    25th Apr - RC02
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    26th Apr new P1 bug fixed Bug #2399
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    27th Apr - RC03

As of 27th April a show-stopper issue was found with the CMake windows build. It crashes on recording or playing. The non-CMake build is fine, so we are proceeding with that, whilst we investigate what the differences are between the two builds.

  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    01st May - RC04

For RC04 we were able to use the CMake build again for PC, having figured out David's issue was the AVX instruction not being supported. Also on Mac, the dock-insertion cursor regained its transparent background. Rolling RC04 also was combined with an update to the scripting section of the manual. As of 2nd May, a new P1 (Mac only) bug, bug 2411 has been found, a crash involving toolbars. Pushing dates by 2 days to accommodate it.

  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination

    If the user starts recording or playing with volume set to zero, pop up the precision volume setting dialog (as a clue to the user as to what they are doing wrong).
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    Scripting to include a GetInfo: Time command.
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    Change in GetInfo: Menus format to include optional extra information about effects (their classification)

    Experiment with redist in Windows installer.
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    P4 ENH Bug 565 - Easier way to avoid clipping on multiple tracks

    • However this would be a new feature and needs design, so not for 2.4.0
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    Negative Play At Speed (poor-man's scrubbing)
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    ENH 2188 - ENH: No warning is given on project opening that the project is not self-contained and relies on aliased file(s)
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    Change some defaults:
    • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
      Overdubbing "off" by default - see ToDo: Unstick 'Stuck In a Mode' (contentious - needs more discussion or better proposals)
    • This is a 'patches-welcome' request. It's a bug fix which can be fixed safely up to the point when translation is complete.
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    P3 Bug 266 - Set Sample Format lacks progress dialog
    • This is delegated to a library, making it hard to get accurate progress indication measures. So it is fiddlier than it looks at first.
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    Make the export step in macros more flexible. (work in progress, but ran out of time).
    • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
      'Next' functions. Needs agreement. Maybe we should do it via Nyquist rather than string-substitutions.
    • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
      'Export' options.
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    Sleep: Macro to pauses for specified number of seconds. Useful for handling recording with a Macro.
  • Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
    Additional Nyquist plug-in types
In most cases, Nyquist Macros have to behave as ;type tool even though it may be more appropriate for them to be listed in the Generate, Effect or Analyze menus.
  • ;type tool generate would behave as a "tool" type, and appear in the Generate menu.
  • ;type tool process would behave as a "tool" type, and appear in the Effect menu.
  • ;type tool analyze would behave as a "tool" type, and appear in the Analyze menu.
