SWR reads too high but mainly it responds too SLOWLY. I use a remote auto tuner. When I hit "tune" the tuner takes about 1 to 2 seconds to complete tuning however the meter takes about 10 seconds to finally settle down to it's too high reading. I had to install an external SWR meter for this purpose.
The SWR meter read too high before but now it really reads too high.  A dummy load reads OK however the least amount of reactance causes excessive response. 
CW sure is better though! Thanks.

    Wow, I am reading so many negative reviews regarding this "upgrade" I think I'll bide my time. Who are the Beta testers?

    Thanks for the report.  I have added this to the developers bug tracker for further investigation.
