Yes. One release to rule them all. You'll also need 2.1 for the Power Genius XL if you ordered one.

Correct me if im wrong but, not necessarily them "all". I believe only If your radio is eligible for 2.x updates(you purchased a 2.0 upgrade or had that upgrade guaranteed as part of your purchase).  this is a key detail.  (Its not been announced yet, but would probably imagine a 1.x rollup for any fixes to features that were part of that release down the road at some point.)

By "rule them all" I mean all hardware versions. Any hardware can run 2.1, provided it has a license which you can buy for $200.

Yes, the shipping of the new FLEX-6000 radios will coincide with the public (GA - general availability) release of SmartSDR v2.1
