1.8 For Windows?

I'm still happily on 1.6.21 and skipped the last update as I saw no benefit. I don't have Maestro. Steve's post suggests the 1.8 update is fine for Windows, just not maestro. Still, I see a lot of swr/reflected-power/foldback issues posted.

Is there any consensus? Best stay with 1.6.21 if I'm happy with it (my inclination)? I'm not too hot on the idea of trying it and then having to go back down to previous version.

In general, the 1.8.3 release for SmartSDR for Windows, CAT and DAX is very stable.  There have been a few reports of the SWR foldback affecting a few users (much less than 1%).  We are in the  process of characterizing their problem reports.  It has been entered into our bug tracker as issue #3765.  

I would strongly recommend upgrading to 1.8.3 because the items it fixed are more global in nature that the few reports we have received regarding the SWR issue.  If you upgrade and have the SWR issue, I strongly recommend that you open a HelpDesk support ticket so we can characterize your issue.  And you can always easily and conveniently revert back to 1.7.30.
