2.0.19 AGC-improvements ?!?

edited February 2020 in SmartSDR for Windows
After installing the new 2.0.19 it seems the dreaded AGC pop has been addressed. Even if bands are poor and not that many strong signals available for testing, I am currently unable to create the annoying pop that was so evident with sharper filter option.
I had a look at the change log, but nothing.... Am I dreaming?
Update:
Yes I was dreaming... just found a strong enough signal, and the pop is definitely stil there :(

    In general, if the issue is not listed in the change log, then it has not been addressed.  Occasionally a fix in another part of the code will serendipitously address other issues, but these are usually under the covers performance tweaks and optimizations.

    Performance tweaks and optimizations can absolutely eliminate such a problem even thought it may not have been directly addressed as Tim says.  We made many of those kinds of performance improvements in the code for this release.

    I wish you would address my child audio issue in (DIV) mode with the Maestro. I hope each time a release is made that it will be fixed. I review the release notes and find nothing. Than I hope it is a undocumented fix- still nothing.

    Alas I retreat to my bedroom and sob for days...

    @ka7gzr Is there an issue number associated with your DIV problem?  Or is there another thread that talks about it?  If so, could you link it?  Thanks.

    Hi Eric,

    This is #3712 in the defect database.

    The main issue I have with the Maestro is the inability to control the volume of the "child" in Diversity mode from the front panel. If A is the "parent" and B is the "child" control of A is through the front panel knob. Control of B volume must be done through the "Audio" page. This is not consistent with the implementation of the Windows SmartSDR version which has a Master Volume control. 

    Both Tim and Dudley have worked with me on this.

    Jim

    Tim, Gerald, i am was on 40m yesterday evening with pretty good propagation to pacific and BTW many strong local CW stations (59 +20/+30) and wonna put a note here with 2.0.19 :
    AFC fast mode producing "click" which is not present with  Middle or Slow AGC modes.
    This ia very audible with strong signals, however with signals below 59 just masked.
    I am running with sharp filters in radio setup with 400Hz width.
