The fixes regarding the ATU and compressor slider being operation are my favorites.

Below is a list of new features, enhancements and bug fixes in SmartSDR v0.15.13

The 8 kHz EQ control has been activated
Added variable TX bandwidth feature in Radio Setup ->Transmit tab
Refactored AGC Threshold gain slider values. Default AGC-T = 60 (100 dB)
Added feature to disable SmartSDR from connecting to FlexControl in Radio Setup ->Transmit tab

Added a feature to auto close Spectrum Display menu options after use
Fixed ATU defect where ATU fails to tune if out of ham band tuning was attempted

The Spectrum Display menu window(s) are the windows that pop up when you use the control buttons on the upper left side of the Panadapter. They now 'time out' and close automatically after a set time... saves more clicking... nice little 'feature'.

This is a great conversation that's separate from the main topic, so I created a new Praise topic to continue the discussion. Please reference the new topic here: Panadapter auto menu close
