What's new in this version:

- The following translations have been added or updated:  Finnish, French, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Russian.
- Fix a bug that could cause data to be lost when pasting audio from one project into another, after the first project has been saved and closed.
- Fix a possible crash when opening or resizing the Equalization window, especially when using large system fonts.
- Don't allow percentages less than -100% in Change Pitch/Speed/Tempo effects (fixes a possible crash).
- Fix a crash when the temporary directory is not available on startup.
- Correctly load ID3 tags saved in Audacity project files.
- On Linux and OS X, store lockfiles in the temp directory instead of the user's home directory.  This fixes problems in lab environments where users have restricted or network-mounted home directories.
- Fix a bug that prevented Nyquist effects from running when certain regional settings were activated.
- Fix a bug in the Quick Mix command that could cause old temporary files to not be deleted.
- Two new Nyquist plug-ins: "Cross Fade In" and "Cross Fade Out."
- Other minor bug-fixes.
