Audacity 1.1.2 for Windows (update)

The last beta of Audacity came with an unintended "undocumented feature"; selecting anything from a track pop-up menu would immediately crash the program. Handy, huh? Anyway, yesterday saw the release of 1.1.2 as a bugfix. Not terribly newsworthy, save that anyone currently using 1.1.0 or 1.1.1 is strongly advised to upgrade.

  Again, according to the Audacity website:

This only affects the pop-up menu in the track's label - all other menus function correctly - and this only affects the Microsoft Windows version of Audacity 1.1.1.


  We now return you to your regularly scheduled squabbling over whether APE tags on MP3 files are more of a "hack" than gapless support...

Using 1.1.1 in WinMe, with Roxio GoBack, it seemed to create gigabytes of temp files when I load a 70 mb file.  It had to be ctrl-alt-del terminated.  Then the GoBack restore area was overcrammed so I had to uninstall and reinstall that.  & I did this twice!  Thinking that this was the bug this fix release targeted, I repeated the ordeal.  Only four hours down the drain.

Hi ckjnigel. Sorry to hear about your frustrated efforts... would you consider filing a bug report with the developers and explaining the problem?

Edit: Seems I can't spell, tonight... so I'm "furstrated" indeed!
