JS8Call version 2.1.1 has been released

Jordan, KN4CRD has released version 2.1.1 of JS8Call. 

About JS8Call

JS8Call is an experiment to test the feasibility of a digital mode with the robustness of FT8, combined with a messaging and network protocol layer for weak signal communication on HF, using keyboard-to-keyboard style interface. JS8Call is heavily inspired by WSJT-X, Fldigi, and FSQCall and would not exist without the hard work and dedication of the many developers in the amateur radio community.

JS8Call is a derivative of the WSJT-X application, restructured and redesigned for keyboard-to-keyboard message passing. It is not supported by nor endorsed by the WSJT-X development group. While the WSJT-X group maintains copyright over the original work and code, JS8Call is a derivative work licensed under and in accordance with the terms of the GPLv3 license. Source code can be found in this public repository: https://bitbucket.org/widefido/wsjtx/ 

What’s new in version 2.1.1? 
  - Added decoder threshold extension for slow mode to prevent decode thrashing after tx
  - Added center filter spinbox implementation
  - Added ability to use legacy hamlib vfo definition
  - Added filter width parameter. Added filter center right click option.
  - Fixed ordering of filter controls and logic around min filter
  - Fixed table sorting by slow speed
  - Fixed widegraph width issues on larger monitors by centering the widegraph and extending the controls panel
  - Filter center, width, and min. Much easier to use. No cumbersome jumping around.
  - Spinbox label tweaks

What's new in version 2.1.0?
  • A new slow speed with a 30 second transmission for decoding down to -28dB. Fire up those milliwatts!
  • A software filter to limit the frequencies that the decoder will try to decode. Useful in crowded bands or for slow CPUs.
  • Some tweaks to the decoder to allow it to be slightly more sensitive. 
  - Added validation to station add modal
  - Slow mode threshold is 1.25 seconds
  - Updated decoder with better debug handling. Fixed issue with E mode crashing on some decodes
  - Fixed signal subtraction for E speed signals
  - Added I decoder and reorganized the E selection code
  - Fixed typo in ifdef
  - Moved JS8E to 3.125 baud instead of 3 baud.
  - I believe SNR should be the min between xbase and xnoi...let's try
  - Removing leftover ft8 files. Cleaning up sync code.
  - Proper SNR calculations for each mode speed under additive gaussian white noise
  - Fixed symlink for ft8 params
  - Decoder does not need to emit debug by default
  - Updated js8 params
  - Fixed #280: sync to station right click option.
  - Time drift menu option should have units
  - Added SKYWARN group to built-in groups list
  - Added debug statements for costas
  - Set I decode default setting
  - Updated hamlib interface to use new unsigned int for vfo_t
  - Added SPEED to spots to JS8NET
  - Fixed #277: callsign deselect while hbing during qso
  - Added software filter to waterfall controls to allow for a way to skip decoding signals outside of the filter range. Useful in a crowded band to prevent decodes from polluting your RX window
  - Fixed some settings bugs related to filtering
  - Added filter tooltips
  - Customized min and max filter positions
  - Reorganized waterfall controls and timing controls under one sizeable pane
  - Added vertical spacing to the waterfall controls
  - Added right click context menu to waterfall for easily setting filter parameters
  - Typo...missed Hz in context menu
  - Added tooltips to waterfall controls
  - Fixed minimum size for waterfall controls
  - Children collapsible should be false
  - Fixed initial state of waterfall controls menu item
  - Added the ability to adjust the filter mask opacity
  - Widegraph tweaks
