As previous times, after a release, with new features, there is a bugfix release.
Today I am releasing 1.2.1 that arrives after some days of development during holiday time 🙂
This kind of releases never come with new features but with bugfixes and improvements. I really recommend to update to this release.
This is the Changelog:
Aug 2020 - 1.2.1
- Bugfix: ADIF export was not exporting dates with the right format in some eQSL fields.
- Bugfix: QSOs were not properly imported when received from WSJT-X.
- Bugfix: Pool/Poll typo fixed. (TNX Barry!).
- Bugfix: QSO editing - Locator was being cleared from sat tab.
- Bugfix: QSO editing - User Inferface was not properly clearedn after editing.
- Bugfix: QSOs tag in the Award tab was not properly formatted in Windows OS.
- Improvement: ADIF creation has been optimized.
- Improvement: All fields received from WSJTX are now added to the log.
- Improvement: GRIDSQUARE & MY_GRIDSQUARE ADIF fields are now also exported to LoTW upload.
Maintaining a free software application where you simply code and upload your packages to the repositories makes very difficult to know if is there somebody out there using what you are producing.
I started KLog not for the users but for personal use and I keep that spirit, however the users of KLog are important as some of them are actively supporting KLog by reviewing, reporting bugs, providing suggestions, patchs, translations and I have even received some donations that I have used to pay for the hosting 🙂
On the other hand, I guess that the users that are actively saying “hello I am here” are just a small percentage.
It would be really interesting to have similar data coming from other sources, to see if one of the main differences of KLog (being native multiplatform) is noticed or not. How many macOS users does KLog have? How many Windows users does KLog have?
Anyway, these data are just for information and I hope it is funny for you to see what the popcon package is providing as it was for me to write this post.
A few days ago I received a bug report from WB0OEW telling me that the date was not being properly updated when UTC was selected.
It was not easy to detect that bug from Europe as we are so close to UTC that you have to be using KLog between 0:00 and 02:00 to notice that… but when you are in the US, it is easier to detect that the UTC date has changed but it has still not been updated in KLog 🙂
It was an easy fix so I decided to release early and give the western ham colleagues the fix soon.
This release is just including that bugfix. Not critical but interesting to have it done.
April 2020 - 1.0.1
- BugFix: UTC time was not properly managed, specially in the date.
It is strange for me to publish KLog 1.0 but I ran out of numbers to keep KLog below version 1.0… and I decided not to keep playing games with versionig so today I am releasing KLog 1.0.
First KLog release was on 22-Jan-2003, the 0.1-pre-alpha, with this very simple Changelog:
22-Jan-2003 - 0.1-pre-alpha
- First "release" of the software.
- You can add/edit QSOs and save/read your log to/from the disk with a fixed name in ADIF format.
- Can manage QSL sent/rec.
KLog has evolved a lot since that very first version… very slowly, but continuously.
But it is not that KLog has evolved a lot since the previous version or has reached a different maturity level… it is simply that I could not continue releasing versions below 1.0, just that simple! O:-)
However in this release there is, at least one interesting thing. It is that you can now upload to LoTW your QSO without having to export the ADIF file and import it again to TQSL.
KLog will send the QSOs to TQSL and will call TQSL for you so the LoTW upload has drastically been improved!
So, just to let you know what’s new in KLog, find below the Changelog
March 2020 – 1.0
