openSPOT4 changelog (stable and beta firmwares)

Changelog for stable and beta firmware versions of the

v36 (beta)

  • Various smaller fixes and improvements

v35 (beta)

  • Fixed device info section title line breaks

v34 (stable)

  • Fixed sending D-STAR callsign suffix using cross modes on DCS/XLX servers

v33 (stable)

  • Fixed sending D-STAR callsign suffix using the SharkRF Link app on DCS/XLX servers

v32 (beta)

  • Fixed setting delayed Power off if no charger is connected above 9 minutes

v31 (beta)

  • Homebrew/MMDVM connector in both C4FM or D-STAR cross mode: if a Special command/cross mode private call DTMF code (default *) is sent to the openSPOT4 without an ID, then a quick group call to ID 4000 will be sent. If the cross mode group call DTMF code (default #) is sent without an ID appended to the command character, then the destination ID of the last incoming call from the network will be set as the “Route cross mode calls to ID” setting. For example, if the “Route cross mode calls to ID” setting is currently TG123, and a call is received to TG91, and you enter DTMF code # to the openSPOT4, then the “Route cross mode calls to ID” setting will be changed to TG91. This can be used to quickly answer an incoming call to a talkgroup

v30 (beta)

  • Added support for exporting all config profiles at once
  • Homebrew/MMDVM connector in C4FM cross mode: if a Special command/cross mode private call DTMF code (default *) or the cross mode group call DTMF code (default #) has been entered without an ID appended to the command character, then the destination ID of the last incoming call from the network will be set as the “Route cross mode calls to ID” setting. For example, if the “Route cross mode calls to ID” setting is currently TG123, and a call is received to TG91, and you enter DTMF code # to the openSPOT4, then the “Route cross mode calls to ID” setting will be changed to TG91. This can be used to quickly answer an incoming call to a talkgroup (this functionality will be added to D-STAR DTMF calls in the next beta firmware)
