Linux source tar file says it is 2.2.2, but...

Post by fredex » Sat May 26, 2018 9:59 pm

the linux source file is named audacity-minsrc-2.2.2.tar.xz, but when unpacked, it unpacks into a directory named audacity-minsrc-2.2.2-rc1.

Note that it ends with "rc1". Does this mean this isn't really the final release, or is it just a naming error?

thanks!

It's a naming error.
The Audacity 2.2.2 RC1 (release candidate) is identical to the release version 2.2.2. The source code "should" have been zipped to a new file with the extracted folder renamed as Audacity 2.2.2, but instead the RC1 ZIP was just renamed. I'll ensure that the developers know so that we can hopefully avoid such confusion in the future.
