MAESTRO SOFTWARE UPDATE QUESTION

Today my MAESTRO when booted up showed a new version of software available, V1.7.32.15,  which it downloaded and installed via WIFI without any issues (original software version on MAESTRO was V1.7.30.14)  Will there be a list of what the software differences are?  I'm also curious if this actually updates the radio side as well?  I did not see a "Radio Update Required" with this MAESTRO update???   Was only the software on the MAESTRO updated?

You can tell if a radio update is required if you see an 'up arrow' icon next to the announcement.

Thanks Neal,  I just let the MAESTRO do it's thing.  It did the download but I don't recall seeing the "up arrow".   So SmartSDR software V1.7.30 is the latest and greatest for Windows Machines and V1.7.32 is the latest version for MAESTRO.  Too me it's a bit confusing.

You found this before I could post the release message.  SmartSDR for Maestro v1.7.32 is a maintenance release that has no new user features or bug fixes.  This is a software change we made for the factory software to optimize the manufacturing process and it had to be pushed to all users because new Maestros are shipping with this software version.

After upgrading, you can continue to use SmartSDR for Windows v1.7.30 as there was no firmware update either.  Usually, we would release all three components of the SmartSDR ecosystem together, but we needed to push this out today.
