The following highlights are SmartSDR for Windows specific features:
N1MM+ F-Key Stacking Bug Corrected: When using N1MM+, pressing F key macros repeatedly (command stacking) did not send the correct CW. This issue has been fixed. (Defect #3942)
DAX TX Improvement: A defect that would result is packet loss when the TX and MIC streams were enabled simultaneously has been corrected. (Defects #3945).
Radios Would Fail to Connect if Used on Public IP Network Address Space: A security feature added to SmartSDR v1.9.7 prevents radio clients from connecting to the FLEX-6000 if both were using public IP address space to prevent unauthorized access to the radio.
