Dodgy Audacity?

Not actually used or updated it in a while, but this is a bit concerning:

Quote:
Audio-edit software Audacity has denied accusations its new privacy policy has transformed it into "possible spyware".

And technology website Fosspost described the most recent version as "possible spyware".

"One would not expect an offline desktop application to be collecting such data, phoning home and then handing that data to governments around the world whenever they see fit," it wrote.

I wonder what the license was like before they did this, maybe someone will fork it?

I still use an older version of Sony SoundForge because it does everything I need and audio hasn't exactly changed much over the years.
