For what it's worth, fldigi is up to 1.33 and the changelog from 1.30 is
reproduced below.

There seem to be several boat owners on this list.  What do you guys have?

I have a Shuttleworth Advantage 44 catamaran that I will have the family on
for 6 weeks in June.  I am hoping to install my screwdriver antenna on the
boat and do PSKMail the entire time.  If I run out of time, I will use a
vertical dipole.

Change Log:

1.33  1) Modified Sound Card mixer dialog and interface code
     2) Modified CW decoder and morse speed tracking algorithm with a
        new CW configuration tab layout and new CW controls.
     3) Source code includes all required #ifdef & #define statements
        for compiling on FreeBSD

1.32  1) Correct compile problem for 64 bit compiler
     2) Minor bug fix for Olivia initialization

1.31  1) Correct problem with cpu% in CW modem during transmit idle
        (no keyboard activity)

1.30  1) New macro definitions with built-in editor
     2) loadable waterfall palettes
     3) all qso's saved to the log are appended to an ADIF file in the
        $HOME/.fldigi folder
     4) significantly improved Psk decoder
     5) significantly improved DominoEX decoder    capable of decoding
        anywhere within a 400 Hz bandwidth without AFC
