I believe I was called because I have been tapping my toe waiting and a lot of people on here know me. Folks 1.4 is working and it has lan which is working very well. The hardest thing I ever did was uninstalling the release, I was not asked to but it was the right thing to do. I am now setting onmy hands waiting just like all of you.
So some of you are very upset and I can understand but I will say this the release is very close and it is worth the wait as least for me it is. That is all I know and let's hope it comes soon.
I never had any doubt that 1.4 would kick butt, nor do I have doubt that future releases will be just as exciting.
Guys I can assure you I have no relationship to Moses. And I can assure you I was not talking to GOD on a Flex radio. but I was tickled that I was asked to take a look at the new release and see that we are getting a good release in the future. But if you all want me to go to the Highest mountain in my area and throw a Flex 6500 manual on all the icom,yaesu and kenwood lovers and see if it explodes like the ten commandments did, I am no Charlston Heston
but I will do my best.
Great thread! Funny!
I'm going to Orlando's hamcation and very much looking forward to seeing the demo of 1.4. I get on the 14.239 net on Sundays, and watch Dudley's remote via Livestream, so have had a little peak ot 1.4 and some of the new buttons (Remote), but looking forward to actually seeing it.

The result was two of the three took positions equal to mine eventually, oh what happened to the third? I ended up working for him right before I retired! All three gave me credit for their success because they never were negative again.
As smart as you try to sound and impress upon others, you apparently have forgotten the joy and fun of experimenting with new abilities within the realm of Ham Radio. You imply that Ham Radio is a lifestyle for you and not just a hobby, but based on your exhibited continuous condescension of those on this board, you appear to have very little regard for those who enjoy the "lifestyle" with you. That is quite a conundrum.
Native LAN Support, FM, more reliable DAX support are a few of the features contained in the 1.4 release (Wave Form API coming soon). 1.4 might well be a "dot release" by naming convention, but not by what has been accomplished. Based on everything we understand, the rails which are being laid are what we're really cheering as we know where they lead. This work provides the requisite foundational code to allow for explosive, multidimensional feature growth of SmartSDR from both within Flex Radio and simultaneously from 3rd party developers.
Frankly, the LAN and FM were in my estimation, an important as they are to the community, they were but small part of the overall work accomplished in this release. Most of this coding was probably very tedious and unglamorous. Such is the work with which great new feature sets are built upon.
Mike, do you not believe the FRS development team reads this board? Do you not think our postings affect them? If not, you might not be as enlightened as you think yourself to be Software Development Team Managers try to keep their team focused and motivated through encouragement and appreciation. If that manager had a choice of allowing an outside source help inspire the team, who would bring in: A curmudgeon or motivational speaker? Which category might your postings fall? Are they drafted with the intend to encourage, to demoralize or were they created merely for your own self adulation and ego?
As a loyal customer of Flex Radio, I have a selfish vested interest in the company's future success. I want to help make sure the environment remains as conducive to continued development of the SSDR platform. This is to insure that my investment retains, and if possible, increases in value (monetarily and/or usability) for as long as possible. Constructive criticism along with helpful recommendations are appreciated by FRS and the group. Speaking for myself, your continued negativism and condescension toward the members of this board and FRS have become toxic and unwelcome. You could better use your intelligence to grow and enable those around you.
Thumper's Mom was brilliant.
I'm a more than satisfied Flex product owner. But loyalty? I could care less whether they succeed in the future.

- For you all this is a hobby. For us, it is our livelihood.
- We are not as bad as some make us out to be nor as good as some make us out to be. But we are pretty good.
- There are two kinds of criticism: constructive and destructive. We appreciate and always try to listen to the former. The latter accomplishes nothing except to cause harm to all, which in some cases may be what is intended.
- We try to learn from our and get better every day.
- We are the only company in ham radio with a public software road map. We do this as a courtesy to you. I expect that we will continue to communicate our directional road map from time to time but without specific dates.
- We are not going to communicate publicly everything we are working on for competitive reasons.
- We love what we do and want you to enjoy the work of our hands.
