Flex generally doesn't comment too far in advance, and does not publish a roadmap. Hints may be gleaned on the Flex net (14329 Sundays), since several alpha testers participate. The best indication will be when Tim (W4TME) publishes the release notes - typically a day or so (max) from software release.

Just a guess. Based on when the last one was I would look for Christmas time or early Jan.

Hoping it is soon. It's likely I will go back to the last version until they get a bug worked out that messes with my currently operating style.  I keep watching for it :)

There is nothing outstanding that is blocking or cannot be worked around (including by going back one version). The fall contest season is upon us and it is likely too risky of a time to push a new update. Just my personal opinion, I have no insider knowledge.

Correct.  I tried 2.4.9 and it causes problems for me with CW so I went back to 2.3.9 which is where I will stay until the next release.

I just did the same.  I had forgot about the issue in the last version where it hung through the upgrade (downgrade in this case) and I had to remove power from the rig to get it to finish the downgrade.

But back working again with no quirks jumping to a CW slice and then going back to SSB slice and not having TX until I move the VFO.

Lou, you’re looking in exactly the right place. FRS usually announces new versions here at the community first.

They sometimes drop a few hints a release is coming out shortly before release, but not always.

Those testing prototype software sign non-disclosure agreements (NDA is the shorthand) and have agreed to wait for FRS to make announcements first.

Makes sense with the complexity of making sure software works across all hardware and documentation is ready.

So keep watching the community for hints from FRS employees or FRS’s official announcements.
