Do we have an approximate date that the next BETA for SmartSDR will be released before going to general release for the Flex-6000? Anxious testers want to play with it over Christmas. :-)

The Road map indicates that the next release is in January 2014. Do a search on this forum and you'll be able to see what upgrades are coming.
I for one is anxious to see DAX... 73

Yep, I understood that, but I was asking about the Beta, which comes before general release with most software companies. If January is the release, we should be seeing a beta any time now. That is unless they are considering the beta as the January release. That is what I am seeking clarification on? Is the beta in January or the General Release?

The fact that the next release is in January in no way suggests that it will be early in the month. It could well be at the end of the month, which is still more than 6 weeks away--plenty of time for a Beta.

We'll be releasing a SmartSDR Beta today. It will include the DAX audio capability and full persistence.

Man I've been waiting for DAX, it seems like eternity. I went out and bought a used Signalink box to satisfy my cravings. Maybe that could apply to ARDS.
I,m 72 years old and acting like kid. That's what Flex does to you.
