did not work in High Sierra, had to roll back to 2.2.2.

the 2.3.0 install worked but then Audacity would not load and run at all.

Gerade AudaCity V. 2.3.0 installiert und nichts rührt sich, danach wieder AudaCity 2.2.2 installiert und AudaCity läuft wieder. Der Installer von V. 2.3.0 lief problemlos, aber das eigentliche Programm eben nicht.
