v1.21.0322

UPDATE: We’ve found a bug that prevents log loading in the new version. We’ve pulled down the links to the new version for now and will update when we have it fixed. Thanks to everyone that found and reported the issue to us. We’re working away at it right now.

We know it’s been a while since the last version of GridTracker. But the wait is now over. There’s been a few changes not only with what’s in GridTraker but also with how we’re developing, fixing, and packaging GridTracker, while maintaining the purpose and vision that Tag N0TTL started out with. He’s still around and throwing little bits at the project, peering over the shoulders of the development team and taking time to himself as needed. A rest he well deserves for his hard work the past three years.

This is the first official open source release of GridTracker. It contains a number of bug fixes and a handful of new features.

Stephen ‘Tag’ Loomis has graciously made GridTracker open source. That means we can all work together to make it better. ‘Tag’ has decided to spend more time focusing on other projects, but there is a new core team of developers who are working to keep things current and continue on his great work.

We’re still here!

I know it’s been a while since the last release. A lot of things happened in my personal life that prevented me from working on GridTracker. That said, the team of people who have joined GridTracker.org to help carry it forward are forging ahead! We expect a new release fairly soon. Thank you for you patience!

Happy Friday!

The ‘interview’ with “Linux in the Ham Shack” went very well I think. I put interview in ‘quotes’ because Russ K5TUX pretty much had me and our crew do all the talking! It was very fun and so wonderful to set back and hear what Sebastian W2ASD and Marc N3CAN had to say and just smile ear-to-ear. Thank you to Russ, Cheryl, Bill and Richard for letting us all talk your ears off! The podcast should be ready for download from their site sometime Monday and please listen to the end, something special happens and I couldn’t have imagined a better ending.

I will be adding the Volunteer Examiner (VE) section to the site soon, so those of you who want to help out but don’t want to fuss with Discord can do so.

And finally, my friend Dylan cleaned his room!
