Flrig v1.3.53 now available

The FLdigi development team led by W1HKJ have announced the release of Flrig v1.3.53. Flrig is a transceiver control program designed to be used either stand alone or as an adjunct to Fldigi.

As with all of the FL suite, Flrig continues to support both PowerPC and Intel (i386) processors; with individual downloads available for each architecture and can be downloaded here.

  xmlrpc server
    * add command rig.cat_priority
      . receive and execute cat string with higher priority
        than any internal processes
      . required for sending CW text strings

    * Add serial port discovery for OpenBSD

  Xiegu G90 etal
    * Correctly parse Xiegu G90 power output in tenths of watts
    * Add XML-RPC API: rig.get_pwrmeter_scale. Divide rig.get_pwrmeter by
      this value to get the actual value in watts.
    * Add XML-RPC API: rig.get_swrmeter (currently broken with G90 since it
      seemingly always outputs 0)

    * adde Yaesu FT-757GX2 transceiver

  Cmd Buttons
    * fix issue with commands 17-24

    * Correct read ALC

    * change power set/get to % of full power

    * fix read/write of commands to status file

    * add AGC button
    * relabel IPO button

  Extras dialog
    * change tab labels for better fit on Pi & macOS

    * FT991A
      - Correct FT991A mic gain, values are 0 .. 100.
      - FT-991A split
        . The FT-991/A does not support the FR CAT command
        . change to use RI (Radio Information) CAT command
      - Add 50ms delay between setting PTT and reading
        . corrects timing problems with WSJTX.
    * FT991, clean up class code structures

  Remove superfluous ceil call in get_rf_gain() as the cast to int truncates it anyway.

  FT450D / TS-480SAT
    * Change for loops to while loops.
    * Simplify logic in some places.
    * Fix RF slider values on the FT-450D which were inverted

  CPU optimization
    * added new --enable-optimizations options to ./configure
      - RaspberryPi 1,2,3,4 [rpi1, rpi2, rpi3, rpi4]
      - BeagleBone Black [bbb]
      - Cyclone5 [cyclone5]
      - Optimize for sse4 [sse4]
      - Use AVX extensions [avx, avx2]
      - i486, i686 [i486, i686]
      - x86-64 [x86-64]
      - ARM CPU-native [nativeARM]

  Font Browser
    * fix segmentation fault
