Problem: Articles and Posts live on where our radios are being updated. While the Hardware is Static the SmartSDR software is redefining our radio (the SDR promise) enough that an old review is irrelevant to current operations.
Suggestion: Add the software version to the way we identify our radios when writing about them, adding more description if additional clarity is needed for non-standard software.
Today (September 4th 2015) I would describe my two radios as a Flex-6700-1.4.16 and a Flex-6300-1.4.16
If a hypothetical SmartSDR version 1.5.9 launch next week I would write about my Flex-6700-1.5.9 and Flex-6300-1.5.9 once I've upgraded.
If I were running Don's dogparkSDR 0.88 (from a few days ago) and was current to the SmartSDR 1.4.16 updates I could describe what I am reviewing as a Flex-6700-1.4.16-DP0.88 or a Flex-6300-1.4.16-DP0.88 respectively.
Similar informal suffixes could be used to identify significant ad-in modules when they are offered and Alpha/Beta versions.
Sure would reduce confusion, but at the expense of a longer clunky naming convention.
