Changes from v1.5:

    • Updates storage for sound card configuration to use device names instead of IDs.
    • Detects changes to computer sound card configuration and notifies user when devices go away.

    • Bug fixes with audio configuration to allow mono devices to be used along with stereo ones.
    • Tweaks to user interface and record/playback functionality to improve usability.
    • Bug fixes and tweaks to improve voice keyer support.
  4. v1.5.0:
    • FreeDV 700E, better performance than 700D on fast fading channels
