Waveform Compatibility with v3

Are the FDV and DStar waveforms compatible with v3?  I found that for both FDV and DStar, the SmartSDR Waveform Client reports No Slice, yet the mode is selected on the slice receiver.  I uninstalled/reinstalled the client and waveform and I ran it with only one client, SSDR,  after a reboot, ensuring I was identifying the correct slice.

DSTAR waveform was working on version 2.49. Paid for version 3, "upgraded". Now, like you, the waveform client reports NO SLICE, yet I can still transmit and receive DSTAR audio fine. Just cannot enter a call sign, nor see the data. I know FLEX pulled the waveform software and instructions awhile ago. They even quit selling the DV3000 DSTAR stick. At repeated Hamfests were the FLEX management attended, I was assured that they were going to improve/update the waveform and put it back up for down load. Paying $200 to KILL DSTAR was not what I was thinking they would do.

Thanks, Eric.  I recall sitting with you at the Flex Banquet in 2017 discussing the then, newly released, 6400(M), 6600(M) hardware.
