Audacity 2.0.5 features and bug fixes

  • You can now navigate through an effect or other dialog using keyboard TAB
  • The separate commands that aligned track start or end with the cursor or with selection start are combined into “Cursor/Selection Start” commands.
  • “Align and Move Cursor” renamed to “Move Selection when Aligning”
  • Fixed a crash when using Equalization.
  • (Linux) It was not possible to open an effect or other dialog then navigate through the dialog using TAB.
  • (Linux) The Play shortcut did not play a read-directly WAV, AIFF or FLAC import if the warning for importing uncompressed files appeared
  • Shaped dither was corrupted and too loud on all stereo exports except FLAC.
  • Keyboard Preferences: some Edit and Align commands for different sub-menus showed the same name.
  • Recordings stopped with “Stop and Set Cursor” shortcut could not be undone
