Audacity 3.0.0 Released

Post by steve » Wed Mar 17, 2021 2:41 pm

17th March 2021
We’re pleased to announce release of Audacity 3.0.0 which replaces all previous versions for Windows, macOS and Linux.

Audacity 3.0.0 may be downloaded via the Audacity website:
https://www.audacityteam.org/download/


Major New Feature:
Audacity 3.0.0 is a major update on our previous Audacity 2.4.2. We’ve changed the format in which we save Audacity projects! Previously we saved projects as a sometimes large number of small files, with an ‘.aup’ file to coordinate the lot. This way of doing things is sometimes called ‘pile of files’ storage.

Compatibility:
Audacity 3.0.0 supports opening projects from earlier versions of Audacity. Projects may be saved in the new format, or exported as audio files in the normal way. Saving in the old project format is not supported, so please retain your old projects if you need to open them in old versions of Audacity.

Bug Fixes:
There has been a massive purge of bugs, with over 160 fixes in this release to make Audacity more reliable and robust than ever.
