Audacity, an open-source audio editor, is to share limited analytics data with their company in Kaliningrad in Russia, it has announced. The data shared, which you don’t appear to be able to opt-out of, includes your IP address but doesn’t include your name, address or email. The app was “acquired” by Muse Group, a company based in Cyprus, in May; they attempted to add analytics through Google and Yandex, but reversed that decision. They have also requested open-source developers sign a license agreement to contribute new code.
Ardour, a free audio editor, has released v6.8 which includes a Remove Gaps feature and a number of bugfixes.
