Release Notes: New commands sort memory channels by frequency or by label, in any 100-channel bank or in all 100-channel banks. Users can save the sorted memory channel list to a CSV file. A new duplicate frequency check is added. When importing channels from a CSV file, values for selectivity and AGC are now optional and defaults will be used if no values are specified. New messages diagnose erroneous lines in a CSV file. A new command under the Data menu clears all memory channels.
Release Notes: A new label caching facility keeps track of frequency labels from the .csv file and adds them to a cache file. The cache file will be used to display a label associated with a frequency. A new, large font usage note is displayed below the frequency, which may be disabled. The serial port no longer needs be a character special device when run under Linux. This change permits using a symbolic link as a serial port, which is typical in Mandrake Linux environments. The "Line Enhance" button is now labeled "NR Hold".
Release Notes: Changing the MacOS X version to force the root directory to be the default directory in file dialogs, combining source files to simplify distribution, and sharing more files with tk8500 control software for the ICOM IC-R8500.
Release Notes: A logging facility was added to record and timestamp frequencies, signal strength, and mode, and to prompt for an optional comment. The ability to choose a different font and different colors for the program's graphics was added.
