1.3.14 (Beta) Released


The Audacity Team is pleased to announce the release of Audacity 1.3.14
(Beta) for Windows, Mac and Linux/Unix. 1.3.14 contains important fixes
for data loss problems when reopening saved projects.

Download link:
http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download .

1.3.14 is now the only version that supports Windows 7, Windows Vista
and Mac OS X 10.4 to 10.7. Please upgrade to 1.3.14 if you are using
Audacity 1.2 on those systems. You can install Audacity Beta on the same
computer as Audacity 1.2 if you install to different directories. If you are
upgrading from a previous Beta release, you can install "over the top"
into the same directory.

Please help us progress to a new Audacity 2.0 by reporting any problems
you find in 1.3.14 to our feedback address:

Summary of Changes in 1.3.14:

Bug fixes:
* Fixes for data loss when encountering corrupted project files. Steps
     taken to prevent writing of overlong audio data block files.

     library imported as noise if FFmpeg was unavailable.

     Toolbars when an audio stream was present.
* Plot Spectrum didn't preserve signal level if multiple tracks were

Changes and Improvements:

     default with an option to normalize stereo channels independently.
* Spectrograms now allow window sizes up to 32768 and frequencies
     up to half the sample rate (the maximum possible).
* Mix and Render now preserves clip length by not rendering white
     space before the start of audio, and preserves audio before time zero.
* CleanSpeech Mode has been removed from Preferences but can be run
     or disabled in 1.3.14 by changing Preferences in a previous Audacity
* (OS X) Added support for AudioUnit MusicEffects (but no MIDI support).
