Thanks for staying patient with me on this one. Build servers were being weird today! Happy to bring you release with simple features, small screen compatibility and polish. Head over to the download page to grab your copy: https://groups.io/g/js8call/wiki/Download-Links
Included in this release are a few nice things:
Small screens are now more compatible with JS8Call. Specifically, down to 800×480 pixels. So, for all you touchscreen RaspberyPi users, hopefully this makes your JS8Call experience a little nicer.
Added the ability to add an arbitrary callsign to the heard list (right click, add new station). This should help folks who are “calling blindly” to another station that may or may not be on the air.
Added the ability to control the basic app toggles from the menu.
Added some nice keyboard shortcuts to the View options.
Made the toggle buttons bold when “on” to help differentiate for color blindness.
There’s a new notification sound for CQ messages!
And, macro expansions now work in the message window.
Along with some various tweaks (like the expiration nag…sorry about that!)
I’m saving up some big features for the next release, so in the meantime I hope that you continue to enjoy testing JS8Call!
