I just wrote some instructions for setting a recording time limit in
the current version of Audacity. I hope you'll find this useful while
waiting for scheduled recording to be added to a later version:
1. If there are no tracks yet, choose Create New Track from the
Project menu. (This is necessary because the zoom and selection
controls won't work without a track.)
2. Zoom Out until you can see the total time you want to record
(e.g. 1:00:00 for a one-hour recording).
3. Position the cursor at the desired stop time, and then choose
Select: Start to Cursor from the Edit menu (or hold down shift
while pressing the "Skip to Start" button).
4. Press Record. The recording will stop when it reaches the end of
the selected area.
