    WSJT-X 2.0.0 has been released by Joe Taylor K1JT and his contributors on December 10th.
    You can download the new version here:

    WARNING: Version 2.0.0 is not compatible to the earlier versions of WSJT-X,
    every station using WSJT-X is therefore asked to change over to version 2.0.0
    as soon as possible.

    At this moment it's a hodgepodge, as I see a lot of hams still using 1.9.1 and a few 2.0.0.

    This is a splash screen when starting the program:

    When the ratio of v1.9 to v2.0 users shifts more in favor of 2.0 users, I'll update then. Right now, it's about a average of 20:1 as reported by PSKReporter raw data (on 10 meters, anyways), meaning for every 20 v1.9 users, there's only 1 v2.0 user. I think I'll just stay 'outdated' and work those 20 and pass up that 1 v2.0 contact. Now when the ratio gets even or shifts more towards v2.0, that's a different story.

    Besides, you'll always have those people that don't upgrade the software, and those are the people that will start to complain and put down FT8 because -they- can't work/decode anyone, and they'll move on to something else, when in all reality, it's their lack of keeping staying updated that's holding them back ... Oh well.

    You're literally part of the problem.

    An interesting parallel to the Evolve or Die cry from some progressive Zed types. Let their tears now be revealed.

    The problem is a lack of understanding of protocol versioning on the part of the authors.

    This will all solve itself when the 1.9x software dies... Hopefully a kill switch was added, (and will be implemented), to the old release version at some point... It is time to upgrade folks...

    I don't see how any user is "part of the problem" due to not upgrading immediately. There's no obligation to upgrade until there's no one left to talk to. I think proprietary tech that locks access to said tech behind a brand name, i.e. System Fusion, is a bigger problem than a number of HAMs not wanting to upgrade software.

    Skip the philosophy and reasons why or why not...just upgrade as the authors request. Why is something so simple so difficult!
