"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I trust Audacity's own website:
http://audacityteam.org/

I also trust SourceForge:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/

There may be others, but those two are my recommendations. Regards, Joe

just an opinion from TechRepublic:
It's time to go away, Sourceforge
That once king of app hosting, Sourceforge, has lost its crown and its way. Jack Wallen discusses why Sourceforge is now Scourgeforge.

Hi Paul,
Haven't read the article, but it's likely to be an opinion with which I disagree. I've never had a problem with SourceForge (so far), although I do prefer a publisher's own website whenever available, which is why I posted Audacity's own site. But thanks for sending along the article — I'll give it a read. Regards, Joe

Hi Paul,
In light of your comment above, I think you'll be interested in knowing about an email that  I received today from the SourceForge folks saying this (there's no copyright on the material, so it's fine to post here):
SourceForge Has New Owners
The first action was to eliminate the DevShare program, which delivered installer bundles as part of the download for participating projects. "We want to restore our reputation as a trusted home for open source software, and this was a clear first step towards that," Abbott said. "We're more interested in doing the right thing than making an extra short-term profit. As we move forward, we will be focusing on the needs of our developers and visitors by building out site features and establishing community trust." Plans for the near future include full https support for SourceForge and Slashdot, and "a lot more changes we think developers and end-users will embrace," he said. Stay tuned for future announcements.
More details at the link above. Regards, Joe
