Updated Version of fldigi & flrig please?

#1 Post by NevilsStation » Thu Jun 14, 2018 9:48 pm

I am told by the package maintainer that the versions of fldigi and flrig
in the MX repository (fldigi 3.23.14 and flrig 1.3.26) are over 2yrs old.

I cannot get support on their forum as no one still uses those versions.

Is it possible to update to:

fldigi-4.0.17
flrig-1.3.39

I need to use these for emergency communications in support of our
local EMA, hospitals, and National Weather Service Office.

Thanks!

fldigi 4.0.17 & flrig 1.3.39 are now available for MX-17 in the test repo. I don't have any suitable equipment to test these with, so please leave feedback when you try them.
fldig needs more work to backport for MX-16, and I'm travelling at the moment, but I'll see if I can get it.

Both downloaded & installed no problems. Will have to do some reading of docs before testing, fldigi looks to have more than a few updates. Thanks Tim.

The new versions appear to have solved the problems of the older ones & are working fine.

I'm not experienced with with these so this is my first impression pending further testing.
