We are getting there...

The source beta of version 1.0 is now available:
and also on

The package will also install the new fldigi 3.0 to /usr/bin, which seems to 
well under UBUNTU... (*)

New features compared to version 0.9.9 (compatible with server version 0.7.13):

* further GUI simplification
* automatic (rx only) reception of wx and other bulletins
* download of tide reference stations nearest to your location
* download of tide tables
* download nearest APRS statons
* download server frequency table from the pskmail wiki
* download pskmail wiki news page
* download nearest RV camper sites (works only in EU).

Most of these functions rely on upgrading the servers to version 0.7.13, which 
will be uploaded soon.

I have tested this version extensively from the boat during the last 2
weeks amd I am quite happy with it now.

PSKmail client v. 1.0 will be released and the GUI design frozen after testing 
this beta for 2 weeks.
