Sourceforge jumps the gun with WSJT-x 2.10 RC6 - RC7 now released

V 2.1 RC5 is due to expire June 7th.

In case you receive alerts as I do:

Note this link takes you to the existing (expiring in 4 days) RC5 version NOT RC6. I have searched the files area on Sourceforge and RC6 is not there nor on the Princeton site.

I think someone has triggered the announcement too soon!

RC6 is available on the Princeton web site here:

After the insecure site warning on the site, actually trying to download the link that it says in the RC6 version (32 or 64 bit versions) gives the following error:

The requested URL /pulsar/K1JT/wsjtx-2.1.0-rc6-win64.exe was not found on this server.

The problem has already been reported in the developement lists here

I think it is reasonable to assume that there was something wrong with RC6 and it was “pulled” as there is now an RC7 release here for all the usual platforms:

But don’t expect too use it during the upcoming contests!! - see the message below that comes up when you start the new version …


If this “non-functionality” is based on date/time - then testing or use outside of the contests at these times will also not work…
