It will be released when it's ready... as per usual Flex does not speculate when a software release is forthcoming.
As has been previously stated v2.0 needs to go through a period of usage in the general population in order to determine if there are any bugs that were missed in the Alpha Testing Process and if so, then those need to be fixed and the fixes tested again. When there is a relatively bug free version of V2.0 then they need to remove the extra features in V2.0 then they will need to do extensive Alpha testing to make sure that they did not break anything when they removed featurs before releasing V1.11
Bottom Line: Software releases take time to get right..
if I were doing a contest, I would bite the bullet and go with V2.0 rather than waiting for V1.11 as you will get the advantage of a number of improvements in the system, be in line for the future improvements and not have to wait until V1.11 is finally released
SSDR as it is right now has been reported to be very stable in contest conditions.
I still love my flex 6300 but if the maintenance release with its promised performance enhancements is not out by cqww I will be using the ic7300 this coming season . The early adopters will hopefully test out the new models , so that the (once bitten) cautious amongst us can then decide whether 2.0 and the new hardware are stable enough for contesting. Many uk Ops have given up waiting and have sold their flex radios , opting for the 7300 or placing orders for the ic7610 on the strength of its success. Two weeks in I am impressed with the 7300 on hf and 4m - if the 7610 turns out to be as good I might be tempted - but still hope the 6600 turns out to be the better option for contesting with its so2r facilities alongside the power genius. Stable ssdr, with better noise and auto notch facilities, combined with improved so2r. Hardware and pa should be a winning combination. For the time being though my £15k upgrade savings are staying in the bank, pending delivery.of the stability and reliability.
