Audacity 2.0.6 released with UI improvement

Audacity 2.0.6 has just been recently released and this release comes with a number of UI improvements including a redesigned user interface, effects, and lots of bug fixes. Audacity is a free, open source, easy-to-use, multi-track audio editor and recorder for Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux and other operating systems. See below some list of changes since release 2.0.5


  • Interface
    • Redesigned, searchable Keyboard Preferences with Tree, Name and Key views.
    • Edit Menu: “Cut” and “Delete” are now in the top level of the menu.
    • Transport Menu now includes “Play/Stop” and “Play/Stop and Set Cursor” (use Keyboard Preferences to create shortcuts for “Play” and “Stop”).
    • Tracks Menu now includes “Mix and Render to New Track”.
    • Track Drop-Down Menu now has Move Track To Top and Move Track To Bottom.
    • New right-click menu choice “Delete Label” to remove single labels.
    • “Snap To” settings are now independent for each project.
  • Effects
    • Truncate Silence: redesigned with simpler option “Truncate Detected Silence” to shorten to the specified length without compressing silence
    • VST effects now support standard FXP presets.
    • LV2 effects are now supported on all platforms (textual interface only).
  • Import or export using FFmpeg now requires FFmpeg 1.2 or later (or libav 0.8 or later)
