Hi - how do I get this fix? Is there a new version to download?

Is there a release date for the fixed version? Or a working beta version?

For Mac, there is a "Nightly Build" https://www.fosshub.com/Audacity-Mac-Nightlies.html
Note that these are "alpha" builds, and although the current Nightly Build is the same as the release version plus a few bug fixes, that is not always the case. During the development cycle the Nightly Builds will frequently contain untested experimental features.

Nightly Builds for Windows were being made by Gale, who sadly passed away in August, so we don't have these at present. We now have a volunteer to take over building nightlies for Windows, and hope that we will soon have regular nightly builds for Windows.

We don't make binaries for Linux. For Ubuntu there is the unofficial "Panda Jim" PPA https://launchpad.net/~ubuntuhandbook1/ ... u/audacity

Is there a version for PC I can download that is stable and contains this fix?

I am not a developer so need to know if this is something sensible to do, or if I should just deal with it crashing every time I apply a chain and wait for your next full release (2.2.1)

Many thanks for your advice.

I suggest using the RC2 Release Candidate from here: https://www.fosshub.com/Audacity-devel.html

It's extremely close to being the release for 2.2.1 (the only differences will be a README file that was omitted for Linux - plus some additional foreign language updates)

Yes but I guess this bug (viewtopic.php?f=68&t=97963) is still in there. Until it's fixed I stay with version 2.1.3.

Yes that bug is still there (or the residual part that affects chains remains)

We managed to fix the non-chains use of File>Open to import a file so the the zoom to fit was restored - and will be in the upcoming 2.2.1 release

But we than discovered that there was a related bug that affected Chains: https://bugzilla.audacityteam.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1793
This remains unfixed and will not be in 2.2.1.

I'm surprised you say you are sticking with 2.2.3 - Steve Daulton, who logged this bug, reports that it is a regression on 2.1.2 - i.e he believes that 2.1.2 is the last version where this worked properly. :?

I guess you mean 2.1.3?

I use it daily and I can confirm the bug IS NOT there, at least not on my machine. The zoom level while using chains in 2.1.3 is correct.

If you follow the link to the bug report in my previous post you will see that Steve definitely says it works in 2.1.2 but not in 2.1.3 :?

But nonetheless - whatever the version - it's still a regression. :(
