That's good to read there will be facilities to record sound from microphone 
(I think/hope the "Webcam capture" also includes microphone only input).
It would be handy for note taking applications to attach recorded audio 

Will the captured audio be saved to standard format like OGG or MP3, or in 
raw/wav format like KRecord (which is nearly useless if every audio note take 
several Mb)?

And last question, will there be ways to cut such audio note.
Cut the X first minutes, or the Y last seconds would be sufficient.
Imagine an audio remember for a shoplist, and we bought the last ingredient, 
cutting the last Y seconds would erase it from the shoplist.

Best regards,
Sébastien Laoût.
