SSDR Version 1 bug fixes

It seems to me that the big feature of SSDR 2.0 is network support. That's not of interest to me as my home internet won't support remote operation unless I pay the ISP an additional fee for a static IP address.

Is there a list of which pending items are candidates for repair in a future 1.x SSDR release? I saw a thread posting where a change in 1.10 actually reduced performance of the 6700. Will that be undone or do I have to pay for the 2.x upgrade. Similarly, will the timing issues associated with CWX macros and WinKeyer emulation be addressed in a 1.x upgrade?

How will SSDR 2.0 upgrades interface with the iOS product? As you know, it's virtually impossible to downgrade an iOS app. Will there ba an upgrade to SSDR for iOS that will force me to upgrade SSDR on my radio (and pay)?

Howard, that isn't correct.  Let me explain what is required.

Mark, since toy have no control over the Internet router for your wireless service and I suspect that you will not be able to get them to configure it for UPnP or add port forwarding to it and your end point us currently double NATed, you will need a public IP address that can be assigned to a router that you control.  In addition, it will be easiest if your router supports UPnP so that you will not have to manually configure port forwarding.

Now, based on the amount of data that will flow through the connection (.5-3 mbps), your ISP might consider it a "server" and balk at it.

Regarding 1.x bug fixes, there wasn't anything added to 1.10.x that degraded the performance of the 6700.

We are planning a substantial bug fix release that will also include several performance updates (technically not new features, but enhancements to existing features and functionality).  Of the items you listed, there are fixes that cover issues related to CWX and the WinKeyer emulation.

Regarding SmartSDR for iOS question, the 2.x versions work with SmartSDR v1.x and 2.x.
