Does anyone know if they fixed the DStar functionality in SmartSDR v2.0?

For those that have upgraded to SmartSDR v2.0, has the DStar operability been fixed? There was a waveform bug that kept DStar from working in SmartSDR v1.****. I was wondering if it now works again in version 2.0?

    Unfortunately, that defect did not get addressed with 2.0.17. I see it scheduled for the 2.1 release.

    I find it frustrating that this is so low on  the list .  This feature was one of the deciding  factors in my decision to by a Flex 6000 radio.  Since the feature requires the consumer to purchase additional hardware in the form of a dongle, I would have expected the fix to be prioritized and fixed WAY before V2 was released.

    Thank you so much for letting us know that it is at least scheduled and for the 2.1 release.  That means a lot.

    May I ask in what way DStar is broken?

    My 6700 seems to be decoding the local DStar reflector transmissions - is the problem with transmitting DStar signals?

    (I hope that I am not imagining those reflector transmissions describing the weather and dinner specials of the day in Missoula...)
