Audacity 2.0.6

Does Audacity 2.0.6 operate pretty much the same as the earlier version? I’m comfortable with the fairly basic processes I now use and worry that if the new version is different, I won’t be able to figure it out. I’m not particularly computer savvy as you can probably guess.

It operates pretty much the same, although the Edit Menu has been re-arranged somewhat.

You can check the 2.0.6 Release Notes to see what changed between 2.0.5 and 2.0.6 and you can read the Manual online at Audacity Manual which has been updated to version 2.0.6.


Since I already downloaded the 2.0.6 beta version several weeks back and it’s been working fine for me in OS 10.6.8, should I download/install this release candidate version of 2.0.6?

Do the release notes specify any differences, improvements between the two?

The actual release (not “release candidate”) is now out and available here: Audacity ® | Downloads

Most of the changes over the last few weeks have been updates to translations. However, even though there are few changes to the code, there may be slight differences to the configuration / build so I’d recommend that you do update. In the (hopefully unlikely :wink:) case of you having problems, it will be clearer if you are using exactly the same version that the support team are using.

Just downloaded and installed with no problems or missing Effects plug-ins from previous update installs.

Thanks for the clarification and links, steve.
