KLog 1.4 – Online services and more

KLog 1.4 has been released.
This relased has been possible after a lot of testing and bug fixing (Thank you for all the testers!)

This version of KLog is a quite interesting one as it adds support for online services like LoTW, QRZ.com, ClubLog and eQSL.cc. It is still basic level but it will allow you to:
– Upload & download your QSL confirmations to LoTW.
– Check for calls in QRZ.com and fill your QSOs automatically.
– Upload your log to QRZ.com, ClubLog and eQSL.cc.

WSJT-X will update how QSOs are sent to the loggers in its next version and KLog is already prepared for it.

In addition, many bugs have been fixed.

The Changelog shows:

- Improvement: Prepared the WSJTX-2.4 UDP interface.

    Hello!

    I really love your software and use it almost daily, but we really need support for the Ubuntu LTS releases (18.04 / 20.04). The version version offered in the official repos is pretty much.. ancient. It’s also quite hard to contribute as you don’t host your code on GitHub. Git makes the the contribution of the much more lightweight. The transformation from SVN to Git is lossless.

    Thank you!
