Audacity 2.0.3 is now available in the linuxtech-release repo.

Audacity is a cross-platform multitrack audio editor. It allows you to record sounds directly or to import files in various formats. It features a few simple effects, all of the editing features you should need, and unlimited undo. The GUI was built with wxWidgets and the audio I/O supports PulseAudio, OSS, JACK and ALSA under Linux. This build has support for mp3 and ffmpeg import/export.

Quick install instructions:
1) install the linuxtech.repo config file if you don't have it already:
su - root
cd /etc/yum.repos.d/

2) install Audacity:
yum install audacity

This version of Audacity is much newer than the old 1.3 release available in EPEL for EL6. If you have both EPEL and Linuxtech repos enabled and had Audacity from EPEL installed then your PC will update automatically from the old EPEL release to the new Audacity package from the Linuxtech repo.

The new 2.0.3 release keeps the same look and feel as the older 1.x releases so there are no drawbacks in upgrading.
