What's New in This Release:
  • (OS X) Crashes when importing audio files are fixed.
  • (OS X) Files can now be opened using Finder "Open with", and by double-click or dragging to the Audacity icon.
  • (OS X) Audio Unit plug-ins are not loaded until used. This makes Audacity start faster and avoids startup crashes due to incompatible plug-ins.
  • (Windows) On a very few machines, the Windows WDM-KS low latency host caused Audacity 2.0.4 to hang or the computer to crash. WDM-KS has been removed from Audacity 2.0.5 while we work on safely enabling this host. WDM-KS will still be available for testing in the Windows alpha development builds.
