FlexRadio announces the immediate availability of SmartSDR v3.5.8

FlexRadio highly recommends upgrading to SmartSDR v3.5.8 at your earliest convenience and strongly recommends not reverting to any previous versions of SmartSDR v3 to ensure the issues fixed in this release do not reoccur.  

SmartSDR 3.5.8 can be downloaded from the FlexRadio website. SmartSDR v3.5.8 is a general release containing important software bug fixes and updates for version 3 of SmartSDR for Windows, SmartSDR for Maestro, SmartSDR for M models, SmartSDR CAT, and DAX.

Please download and review the SmartSDR v3.5.8 Release Notes included with the release package before installing SmartSDR v3.5.8 on your FLEX-6000.


IMPORTANT: Critical Update for M-Model and Maestro Users

A recently discovered Windows operating system (OS) function is responsible for consuming excessive amounts of disk space on the displays of M-model radios and Maestros. In some cases, it prevents the installation of SmartSDR software versions or results in the persistent display of the EULA message when booting a radio. SmartSDR v3.5.8 adds file system management logic for M models and Maestro to mitigate excessive disk consumption. Downgrading the firmware to a version before SmartSDR v3.5.8 will result in Windows consuming all of the available disk space in the display on M-Model radios and Maestros.


Release Highlights for SmartSDR v3.5.8

Improvements to Mic Profiles: Mic Profile settings are now stored per station (client) and per mode group. This means, for example, that setting a Mic Profile on SmartSDR for Windows will not affect the Mic profile selection for the same mode on Maestro. This also corrects numerous issues related to Mic Profiles unexpectedly changing in multiFLEX workflows. [SMART-9254]

Improved Disk Management for M-Model and Maestros: Added file system management logic for M-Models and Maestro to mitigate excessive disk consumption due to Windows OS functions. This change prevents problems loading new software and repetitively showing the EULA message. [SMART-9583]

Updated TURF: Modified the Spain+ (EU17) region band plan per changes in recent Protección Civil en España - REMER publications. [SMART-9509]. Modified Austria (EU16) region for 160 and 6m per official region band definition. [SMART-9616]

New Maestro and M-Model Features: Added numeric display of RF Gain value in Maestro and M-Models [SMART-9392]. M model and Maestro now indicate when switching between the High/Low and Width/Center modes of the filter knob. [SMART-9149]
