- Moving events in the Piano Roll view
- Inserting/Deleting effects, including delay-compensated effects
- Enabling/Disabling looping
- Moving the Now Time (in projects without video)
- Inserting/Deleting new tracks or buses that route to existing audio ports

Notable Bug Fixes

- CAL scripts would always use a resolution of 960 PPQ instead of the actual display/Project PPQ.
- A MIDI track's Vel+slider in the Tracks view did not update when setting Vel+ from the Track-property menu command.
- While recording Volume automation, the audible volume could be inconsistent with the resulting envelope in certain circumstances.
- Exporting to ASCII Tab didn't save complete text file
- It was sometimes possible to record onto archived tracks.
- A crash could occur when opening a Type 1 DV file on a dual processor or Hyper-Threading PC.
- Mixdown could be aborted and a memory error could occur when exporting tracks ("Tracks" selected as the Source Category in the Export Audio dialog) from a large project.
- MIDI tracks Would keep playing for a brief moment after playback was stopped if "Play Effects Tails" was enabled.
