The built in computer control looks to be nifty.  Now I have to finish
that 1998 project of building an LDG (before they had numbers) auto
tuner.

WSPR 2.0 is now available for download from the WSJT Home
Page, http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/ .  Click on
WSPR in the left margin, then on the appropriate WSPR 2.0
link for your operating system.  Installable binary packages
are provided for Windows and for recent Debian-based 32-bit
Linux systems.  A recommended Linux distribution is Ubuntu 9.04.

Version 2.0 of WSPR introduces a number of new program
features, including the following:

  - User-friendly setup screen with drop-down selection
       of audio devices and CAT parameters
  - Support for compound callsigns
  - Fine adjustment of fractional time for transmitting
  - Optional CW identification
  - Tools for frequency calibration and automated
       frequency corrections for your radio
  - A Tune button
  - Direct on-line access to the WSPR 2.0 User's guide,
       WSPRnet, and the WSJT Home Page

Full details are presented in the all-new User's Guide,
which is a "must read" if you want to use the new features.
The manual includes a Troubleshooting guide.  Click
http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/WSPR_2.0_User.pdf
to read the manual.

WSPR also runs on most other Linux distributions, on
FreeBSD, and on Mac OS X -- but at present, on these
platforms you must compile it from source code.  Some basic
instructions are included on the WSJT Program Development
web page, http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/devel.html .


Many people have contributed to the success and popularity
of WSPR, and to WSPR 2.0 in particular. Members of the WSJT
Development Group, especially G4KLA, OH2GQC, VA3DB, W1BW,
W6CQZ, and JCDutton have written code, particularly code
addressing platform portability issues.  G3ZOD, LZ1BB,
OZ1PIF, and VK3SB have spend many hours helping to debug
beta releases and prepare distribution packages. G3ZOD
drafted most of Appendix D of the new User's Guide. Many
thanks to all!
