What's new in this version:

Cross-platform Bug Fixes:

- Noise Removal and all Nyquist effects pasted the original unmodified audio at the end of the modified region
- Noise Removal inserted a tail of low level noise at the end of the modified region
- Nyquist and Compressor plug-ins did not display moving bars in progress dialogue and over-estimated "Remaining Time"
- Cancelling Nyquist effects deleted unprocessed audio
- Change Speed and Change Tempo failed to modify the original selection length
- Cut lines invisible
- Fixed various bugs importing multi-stream files via FFmpeg
- File > Export as WAV could be corrupted if overwriting an imported WAV read direct from the file
- Export multiple "Other uncompressed files" choice always produced 16-bit PCM audio irrespective of chosen options.
- MP3 export usually produced a 128 kbps constant bit rate file irrespective of chosen options; reported length often incorrect
- MP3 ID3 Genre tag misread on import if the genre list in Metadata Editor was opened and saved
- Exported metadata tags in MP3, OGG and FLAC often not seen by player software - now substantially improved

- Note: Windows users wanting to export MP3 files will require the latest version of the LAME encoder from http://lame.buanzo.com.ar/
