Tom - SmartSDR v1.5 will be released when the publically stated feature set of enhanced noise mitigation, primarily NB, NR and ANF are complete and we are satisfied with the quality and stability of said features.  SmartSDR releases are no longer time "boxed", meaning we no longer establish a publicly stated target date for the release.  We are working hard on the last of the noise mitigation features and when the features are done, you'll receive the software.

The animosity you have received is due to a bit of some uncomfortable history when we used to establish target release dates and due to some internal decisions we made to delay a release in order to fix some fundamental performance issues that were not originally slated for the release.  As such, we were significantly delayed and there was a lot of negativity directed towards FlexRadio because we "missed a date".  Even though we stated that we made the decision to delay in order to vastly improve the performance, stability and quality of the release, that did not quell the level of complaining about it being delayed.  So we decided that it is more important to provide quality software releases defined by features and when they were completed to our satisfaction rather than estimating when we thought we might be able to release it.  Therefore, we do not state publicly when a release may be available until it is available.

I am going to close this topic so that a rehash of this already overly explained topic doesn't fill up everyone's inboxes.  73
