By releasing version 3.0.3 RC1, Audacity digital audio editor finally adds official Linux binary support!
It’s the 64-bit Appimage package that runs in most Linux Distributions. Without installing, it’s a single executable that launches the software via double-click.
It is incompatible with the GPL license. Use it at your own risk!

- switch to 64-bit Windows binary, and drop Windows XP support.
- Improved default spectrogram colors
- Fix user interface display issue on HiDPI display in Linux.
