May 18, 2007: Audacity 1.3.3 Released

The Audacity Team is pleased to announce the release of Audacity 1.3.3 (beta), which contains numerous new features and capabilities beyond the 1.3.2 (beta) release. Because it is a work in progress and does not yet come with complete documentation or translations into foreign languages, it is recommended for more advanced users. For all users, Audacity 1.2.6 is a stable release, complete and fully documented. You can have both Audacity 1.2.6 and 1.3.3 installed simultaneously.

See New Features in 1.3 for more information about the 1.3.x beta series.
