     I am having a problem with the PTT hanging when using FDV. I release the key and the rig stays keyed and of course outputting an FDV signal, and it holds the mic open as if it was an open vox. Sometimes it will drop after a few seconds and other times a software shutdown is required, and still other times I've had to force the rig down with the power button. Running 1.5 with a 6300, Win 10 on an intel based desktop. This does not happen 100% but almost. 1.4 seemed ok. Also running the same installed FDV that I had with 1.4 (the red icon on the desktop)

SmartSDR v1.5.0 supports updated waveform module functionality. A new version of FreeDV is required for SmartSDR v1.5.0. If you had previously installed the FreeDV waveform, you must remove it from your radio and uninstall it from your PC after installing SmartSDR v1.5. Then download and install the updated FreeDV waveform. SmartSDR waveforms can downloaded from the Waveforms web page.
