Our software team is working hard to get SmartSDR v3.4 delivered in December. 

Though we previously announced that we had planned to get this release out sometime in November, input from our alpha team warranted some additional work on the release. Here is what you can expect from SmartSDR v3.4:

  • Improved DAX stability
  • Decreased audio latency 
  • New optional low-latency filters for Digital modes
  • Enhanced VOX performance
  • Robustness for client persistence in SmartSDR for
  • Windows, CAT, DAX via automatic settings file backup 
  • A Better indication of multiFLEX with Local PTT (green) vs multiFLEX without Local PTT (white) on SmartSDR for Maestro and Windows
  • Hardened input fields for security and to prevent confusion/errors
  • Many other behind-the-scenes improvements

A Release Candidate will go to our Alpha team later this week.

If no additional issues are identified, look for a public release within another week.

Look for a release announcement on social media including FaceBook, The FlexRadio Community and Twitter.
