And amid the controversy, MUSE Group launches Audacity 3.0.3 and includes AppImage version for Linux

Audacity 3.0.3 in AppImage

In the last few months there has been a lot of buzz around one of the most popular open source wave editors. Less than three months ago, MUSE Group acquired Audacity in what was the first episode of a soap opera that is still shooting. Here we write several articles about it, such as one that explains what data it will collect hereinafter, one with alternatives y another about two forks that do not collect telemetry, but life goes on and yesterday became available Audacity 3.0.3.

It is not one of the most important update in the history of software and, deluded me, it had crossed my mind that I was going to read something related to an apology and that they were not going to collect any data about us. Nothing of that. The good thing for Linux users is that, for those who don't want to install anything, Audacity 3.0.3 is now also available as AppImage.

What's new in Audacity 3.0.3

  • The Windows version of Audacity is now 64-bit (Note: 32-bit plug-ins will not work on 64-bit Audacity).
  • The default spectrogram colors have been improved.
  • An official Linux binary is now offered in the form of AppImage (available here!).
  • Update check: Audacity can now check for a newer version available.
  • Bug Report - Allows users to submit the details of a fatal bug.
  • Various bugs have been fixed

Personally, to say that the Flatpak version has failed me in Manjaro and I have had to reinstall it. For everything else, Audacity does not need an introduction, and only the few previous news, that there is a version in AppImage and the change of owner has to make us decide if we want to continue using it or not. For my part, I will wait to see how the support goes in some of the forks.
