Release Notes: This release has much-improved documentation. This is an ongoing effort. The new models added are IC-820H, DttSP (experimental), Elektor SDR-USB (Windows and Un*x), DDS-60, FT-450, and FT-767GX. Fixes have been made to models IC-746, IC-765, IC-910, Kenwood's, FT1000MP, FT817, and others. A new toy, the rigsmtr program, has been added to graph polar signal strength. There's also a new experimental rigctld rig daemon, with a simple protocol for scripting languages and radio applications.
Release Notes: This is a mid-year roll-up of bug fixes and minor feature enhancements to the Hamlib libraries. No new radio models have been added to this release.
Release Notes: Information about the w command was added in rigctl.1. The PTT command for IC-7000 was fixed.
Release Notes: This release features Python 2.4 compatibility, improved TS570 functionality, improved Argonaut V functionality, support for the IC7000 and G313i/G313e, many Icom, Kenwood, and Tentec fixes, and build system fixes.
Release Notes: The frontend API of this release is enhanced with support for clonable rigs. Please note the rigmem command had a change in CSV format. The rigctl command has a new send_cmd for protocol debugging purposes. Hamlib now has easy helpers to talk to USB devices. The new models added are AR8600, AR2700, DWT (DLL based under Windows, need test under other OS). Fixes were made to models AR7030, Orion, NRD-545, RX-320, FT-817, FT-990, TS-2000, Easycomm, and a big AOR update. The problem with parallel port support of BSD systems has been solved.
Release Notes: This release adds new models TS-480, VR5000, and FT1000MkV Fld. The frontend API sees port_t renamed as hamlib_port_t. Many fixes were brought to models TS-570S, AR7030, AR3000A, Orion, FT-897, and IC746. The 64-bit int handling is corrected, which potentially fixes the backends kenwood, alinco, pcr, uniden, aor, jrc, and tentec. Parallel port support has been added for BSD systems. Along with Visual Basic testing, a .NET wrapper is now available.
Release Notes: This release adds new backends: Racal, V4L radio cards, Watkins-Johnson 8888. It also adds new models: IC-78, IC-7800, IC-R20, IC-756PROIII. The frontend API sees the LEVEL_SQLSTAT marked as deprecated. AOR 5k&8k got S-Meter. The IC-R8500 received calibrated S-Meter. AOR AR-7030 had a freq bug fixed. Jupiter was fixed with legacy support. Many other fixes were made. The mingw32 distribution was compiled with gcc 3.4, and the stdcall interface switch for VisualBasic has been prepared.
Release Notes: This release adds new models: Ten-Tec (Orion), AOR 3030, Yaesu FRG's, and Skanti. It has fixes for JRC NRD435 and NRD535, Drake, AOR3000, and many others. On the port front, there are fixes for BRK/RTS/DTR handling under Win32 (Elektor304). The Visual Basic wrapper file has been tweaked. Finally, there's a new command 'rigswr' to measure VSWR vs frequency.
Release Notes: While the API matures slowly, many backends and new models have been added, a Python binding is now there, and the MinGW (win32) platform is in the supported list. Besides improvements and bugfixes, the experimental work has been continued on SDR.
