This topic is only for users testing the 2.0.0 Release Candidate tarballs listed below.

2.0.0 is our upcoming release to replace the elderly Audacity 1.2.6. It is based on the long running 1.3 Beta series which has many new features and has now had release-blocking bugs fixed. 2.0.0 gives Audacity a new non-Beta version for the first time in several years.

The Release Candidate tarballs below are offered before release for all to test and report on them so as to be sure there are no serious problems we are unaware of. We welcome any comments, but primarily wish to receive reports of any major problems such as:

  • crashes
  • lost audio in exported files or in reopened Audacity projects (.aup files)
  • any features that work in your current Audacity version but do not work correctly in 2.0.0.

Audacity 2.0.0 rc1 full source tarball (.tar.bz2)

Audacity 2.0.0 rc1 minimal source tarball for Linux/Unix (.tar.bz2)

If you find a problem, please reply below, giving as much detail as you can including what actions you took in Audacity before the problem occurred. Problems we already know about are listed here . If you experience problems compiling the tarballs, please tell us that also and attach the configure log and compile output.

Please tell us which distribution of Linux you are using and whether you obtained the minimal or full tarball.
