Hello,
any information when the SmartSDR 3.x will be released.
In general I missed somehow a roadmap from Flexradio!

Flex no longer gives exact release dates albeit they hinted in marketing literature as the end of March

Based on past experience I and the complexity of V3, I would expect the date to slip.

For most of us we don't know everything that will be in v3,,but we do know the big ticket is Multi Client technology.

With this amount of complexity as howard mentioned it is not surprising the date to slip somewhat. This is all new technology for ham radio.

Their dates seem to be doused in Vasoline . . . They always slip.

I'll be pretty disappointed if they missed those dates. It would be really nice to use multiclient in WPX, and I bet some members of the alpha team will be using it to great advantage at certain very large M/2 or M/S efforts. I wish Flex would have something between the super-exclusive alpha team and GA, like a beta/early access stage with an expanded group of folks willing to put it through its paces and provide feedback. Having said that, between past experience and working in software delivery myself, I'm not going to hold my breath. 

Remember: they said the end of March, but as I like to remind my PMs, they didn't tell you March of which year :)

Re read Howards post here, I think he is mostly close to being correct.

Yeah, I suppose I restated a bit of what he already said -- but I don't think there is any element of it that I missed.
