SVN Checkout

When using TortoiseSVN Checkout, what is the correct “URL of repository” in order to download just the 2.1.1 release code?

Audacity has moved to GitHub

That URL causes a number of older versions to download as well. I just want the source code for the current release.

When I compiled 2.1.0 with ASIO I did so on Win 7 with VS Express 2013, wxWidgets 2.8.12, and Python34. I’ve now tried twice to compile 2.1.1 in exactly the same way and it failed both times: once using the “trunk” code and a second time using the “tags” code. What is different about compiling this new release on Windows?

Just go to the GitHub address in your web browser.
There is a dowload link for the current source code in the right hand column.
The current ZIP file is virtually identical to the 2.1.1 release except that the version number has been changed to 2.1.2 alpha, and there have been 2 bug fixes since the 2.1.1 release.

I don’t use Windows so I can’t help you with compiling on Windows. The “readme” instructions included in the code “should” be correct.

Thanks for your reply. I have gotten this “2.1.2-alpha” version to compile with errors only on “Help” and “Locale” which do not seem critical.

Is there no way to checkout the final 2.1.1 release code? I’d like to end up with the 2.1.1 release version with ASIO which I need for my USB audio interface.

Yes there is, but I’ll need to look it up…

Here it is:


Is there a new source code repository? Where would I point to “SVN checkout” the 2.1.3 release version source? I’d like to build ASIO version.

I tried pointing to but it can’t be right as it is too large and after 900MB failed. Thanks.

Audacity development source code is on GitHub:

For a one-off download, click on the “Clone or Download” button on the right side of the page, then select the “Download Zip” option. The file size is 26.3 MB.
For developers that want to be able to keep up to date with the current code it is better to clone the source code repository.

Release version source code is available from this page:
Windows users will usually want the most recent (2.1.3) Zip version (28.4 MB)

For Linux, there is a “mini” tarball (7.7 MB) available from the link at the top of this page on the Audacity website:
Shared libraries that are usually installed as standard on Linux Desktop systems have been removed so as to reduce the download size.

Perfect, thanks.

Do these two errors on the Windows build matter:

Error 520 error MSB3721: The command “msgfmt -o “C:\Resources\Audacity\win\Release\Languages\af\” …....\locale\af.po” exited with code 1. C:\Resources\Audacity\win\Projects\locale\po.targets 45 5 locale

You don’t need to build the locale or help projects to build Audacity with ASIO support. So you can disable those two projects in the configuration manager.
