Today (maybe a little late) I found ot that N1MM+ (beta) is available.
Everything works fine with my setup.
Have fun trying it!

FRS - What is your direction/current activity for direct support of N1MM?
V1.0 - CW Keying via DTR or RTS doesn't key the transmitter, PTT is triggered but no RF. External wire from computer com to accessory pin via keying transistor.
V1.3 - Cat KY introduced but only functions as a special add-on to the macros - Doesn't work on CTL+K keyboard console - No support in hardware panel - Doesn't support WinKey protocol. Still no DTR/RTS support.
What is the status (FRS viewpoint) of full N1MM+ support for CW, voice, and digital?
This question is at the VFO-A / VFO-B level, not at the SO8R level.
We were asked by the N1MM team to implement the focus return before adding any other features in our software to support N1MM. We are in contact with the developers and will be discussing what we should do next. We have casually discussed how to handle CW keying support as well as voice keying, but we do not have a "plan" yet.
We have a task in our development list to implement WinKeyer protocol on a virtual serial port. This would mean you could point a Winkeyer protocol aware program that uses serial ports at this port and send CW through that interface. This item is not yet scheduled, but we do know what to do. I will say that when we discussed this with some others including some N1MM folks that it was questioned if this was the "right" way to do this and if it would actually be used. Any feedback you guys can provide in this area would be beneficial -- we don't want to do something you won't use. Also, we mentioned that we had Kenwood KY command support in CAT, but we got the distinct impression that the N1MM folks do not want to use CAT for this purpose (and we don't blame them).
Beyond the things I've mentioned, there are no other plans. We would appreciate understanding if other things are needed.
-Connection to N1MM+ as kinda contesting industry standard logging software
-CW, Voice keying and RTTY keying from the logger
-No additional hardware like external keyers as MicroHam
-integration with CW skimmer on multiple bands
Tecchnical concept like TCP/IP API or KY CAT commands are less relevant to me, just to work reliably in a contests.
Its basically same requirements what we put in front of traditional transceivers + elimination of external hardware + broadband skimmer. Nothing more and nothing less.
I too would like to eliminate my extra, external winkeyer...73, w5xz, dan
