Version 4.0.15 Maintenance release

  • ARQ server
    • Correct server accept implementation
      • OS X cannot use wait(0) without forcing max cpu usage.
  • Signal gain
    • Fix signal path corruption caused by recent changes to path gain processing

Version 4.0.14

  • remote logbook
    • Correct seg fault when starting with remote logbook
  • ARQ exit seg fault
    • Correct ARQ seg fault during shutdown
      • only occurs on Linux and dependent on OS releasing resources from various threads.
      • probably a better way to resolve the fault
  • WEFAX auto center behavior
    • Fix auto center button behaviour in WEFAX mode.
      • The button is used to control if the user wants to manually center the image or let the program do it for him. Previously it was impossible to disable the auto center.
  • WEFAX phasing change button
    • Fix change button from phasing to abort in WEFAX mode.
  • RTTY configure initializers
    • Correct Fl_Combobox RTTY initialization
  • File aging
    • Not working correctly on Windows, OK on Linux and OS X
  • OS X shutdown
    • Fix to ARQ server shutdown issue on OS X
    • reimplement psk s/n and imd evaluators to allow both measurements during both idle and character transmission
  • Spectrum Display
    • Update to waterfall interaction controls
    • Changed function of waterfall gain offset control
      • left most numeric control below waterfall
      • setting will now effect all three signal viewers
        • waterfall (WF)
        • fast fourier transform (FFT)
        • signal (SIG)
        • setting also changes the path gain to demodulators
        • the more negative the number the greater the gain
        • this adjustment DOES NOT compensate for low audio input to the A/D converter
        •  it will effect the positioning of squelch controls and the visibility of signals on the waterfall,
  • Warnings in sound.cxx
    • Fix compiler warning messages
  • OS X app paradigm
    • Update documentation explaining the OS-X app paradigm. In particular the location of the Unix binary with the app folder structure.
