Release notes for 2.5 do not mention 6300, 6500 or 6700. Has maintenance stopped on these?

I was reading over the release notes for SmartSDR for Windows version 2.5 and it specifies that it applies on to the latest Flex radios (6400, 6600, etc).  Are all of these fixes only for the later models?  
This leads one to come to the conclusion that my 6300 might be an orphan unless I spend another $200.
Can anyone help clarify this?

    The first line of the Release notes reads:
    "SmartSDR v2.5.0 is a general release intended for use with the FLEX-6400™, FLEX-6400M™,
    FLEX-6600™, FLEX-6600M™, FLEX-6300™, FLEX-6500™, FLEX-6700R™ and FLEX-6700™
    software defined radios which contains new features and software defects introduced
    in previous versions of SmartSDR."
    The 6300, 6500 and 6700 are all clearly listed. If you have licensed v2 for your radio, this "point" upgrade is free. If you are still running v1, then yes, you will have to pay the $199 to upgrade to version 2. This is how it has always been, you have to pay for major version upgrades.

    My apologies as I must have either downloaded the wrong file or had a brain check when reading the latest changelog.   Does anyone know when the actual installer will be available?  My radio is  licensed for V2 and has been since it originally came out.

    Watch here at the community for the actual release of an installer.

    FRS sometimes issues Release Notes ahead of the actual release, which they did this time.

    You will see the announcement here when they roll it out.
