Hi all, 
can we also update http://pskmail.org/PSKMaildownloads.html . 
I was contacted by N5TBS yesterday, he is trying PSKMail with intention to set 
up server. I was  helping him set up client, I went to pskmail.org side and had 
to give him quite complicated instruction. He had to install version 1.4.0, 
than had to change javapskmail.jar, 1.4b8. That is difficult and Clint N5TBS 
did it with no trouble but can we put last stable version on that side, so 
people can download, install and be ready to go. I think we should move old 
versions to different folder, like "Old client, software";

Also, within periods of months that my server is running I had many stations 
experimenting, connecting and than giving up. Everybody start connecting in 
wrong mode sets (non USA modes). Can we make part of pskmail.org downloads with 
US version of PSKmail client with default table mode for US, would be nice to 
see US version of server as well. 
Clint is running Windows, it took me some time to find info on facebook, how to 
run server on windows, but I got it. Any chance to put link to that side into 
download side pskmail.org?

Finally where is 1.5 beta, I will be more than happy to test it, but where is 

Well, my project of setting up station for sailing boat with intention to sail 
across Atlantic is progressing well. I sent everything (radio, laptop, tuner, 
antenna, concentric cable, chokes) to Poland, it got there just before 
Christmas (with some problems - customs). Now it will be carried by the crew of 
the boat to Canary's Island on January 3rd, I hope they will install it 
correctly and will see how things will go. 
Best regards to all

Hi all,

Before we go ahead and jump to version 2 with integrated modem handling
I think it would be wise to have one final, stable release using fldigi
as an external modem. A stable release should buy us some time to make
version 2 even better :-).

At the moment David, kf4wbs, and Gunnar, sa6bqz, have been helpful in
testing the first beta of version 1.5 and I have fixed almost all the
issues they found. Great testing!

So, what is 1.5 you ask? Well, its basically 1.4 beta 8 with an added
contact manager/address book and numerous bug fixes. A few more new
things like Cc addressing and addressing using name and email address
makes the emails look better.

I have two bugs left regarding issues with multiple emails in either
direction and when I have that sorted it's time for beta 2.
I would like to see more testers of that and if you already have issues
in 1.4 beta 8 then pse just reply with those here (will try to handle as
many as I have time).

73 de Per, sm0rwo
