There have sometimes been 2 or more releases in a day if a bug was picked up quickly and fixed the same day or if a suggestion has been made and Dave has leapt on it as a quick win. With that frequency letting them loose in the wild would be a nightmare even given that most of the releases are RC standard really. > Interesting aside - Ubuntu has fldigi in their repositories, but I > guess whomever maintains them isn't interested enough to keep it > updated.

They have to because I bill myself as the "out of the box" Alpha tester ;-) I don't do compile unless desperate and then I need instructions. I have let slip testing PSKmail with the alpha's but the dark winter nights are now on us so I may get back to doing a bit more on that front. My feeling is we can't be that far from an Fldigi upgrade not that I have any inside knowledge 73 Roger G6CKR For the Fldigi alpha team.
