    New Beta of FT4 and FT8 software WSJT

    Joe Taylor K1JT reports the new beta version of the popular FT4 and FT8 software, WSJT-X version 2.2.0, is a significant program upgrade offering many new features

    He writes:
    The first candidate release, WSJT-X 2.2.0-rc1, is now available for download and use by beta testers. This candidate release is your first chance to test the new features and provide feedback to the WSJT Development Group.

    A list of program changes since WSJT-X 2.1.2 can be found in the cumulative Release Notes
    http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/Release_Notes.txt

    ... and also in the updated WSJT-X 2.2.0 User Guide here:
    http://www.physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/wsjtx-doc/wsjtx-main-2.2.0-rc1.html#NEW_FEATURES

    Upgrading from earlier versions of WSJT-X should be seamless. There is no need to uninstall a previous version or move any files. You might want to install to a different directory from your WSJT-X 2.1.2 installation.

    Links to installation packages for Windows, Linux, and Macintosh are available here:

    You can also download the packages from our SourceForge site:
