Flrig v1.4.8 now available

The FLdigi development team led by W1HKJ have announced the release of Flrig v1.4.8.  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 supports PowerPC, Intel (i386) and Apple Silicon (M1) processors with individual downloads available for each architecture. Download the latest version of Flrig here.

        and reduce the potential for inadvertent inclusion of
        system file with the same name.
      * trusdx 'check' function fix
      * serial.cxx - trace function reporting in seconds
        rather than milliseconds

        want to explicitly throw focus to FCs following vfo swap

    ULL Data Type Changes 
      * Updated four occurrences of old frequency datatype to
        unsigned long long; this fixes the mishandling of freqs
        greater than 2 GHz in the serial loop.

    UI - Frequency Control behavior  
      * Made FC behavior consistent across flapps

        . Hold L/R Click for repeat (digit reverses colors)
        . Middle Mouse click: paste from clipboard
        . SHIFT Left Click to set focus - colors reverse - then:
          - R/L arrow +/- (3-dp); w/SHIFT (4-dp); w/CTRL (5-dp)
          - U/D arrow +/- (6-dp); w/SHIFT (7-dp); w/CTRL (8-dp)
          - Pg U/D    +/- (9-dp); w/SHIFT (10-dp); w/CTRL (11-dp)
          - L/R mouse click (hold for rpt) in top/bot half of digit
          - Ctrl/Meta-v: paste from clipboard
          - Enter frequency with number keys or Keypad
            (decimal point blinks once entry has started)
            . BSP/Ctrl-BSP erase last digit/all digits entered
            . ENTER to confirm, send to rig, release focus
            . ESC to abort, revert to previous value, release focus
