Too bad. I have had a succesful QSO with Ted in psk31 and Tomi in both
psk31 and mfsk. Mfsk is really amazing. I could hear Tomi's signal dissapear
into the noise (the band was closing) and still copy him.
Let me know when your rig is hooked up, so we can give it another try.

I have a running 0.7beta1 which can read al those additional fields.....
The QSO frame wil adapt to the number of fields in the log.
Still some work to be done though.
The liblogfile library is great! Once I got a grip on all those pointer
arrows, reading flexible logs is wizardy.

Must have forgotten to update logwindow->logchanged. Will have a look.

Yes indeed. Can you live with the current 'Open file' dialog in rc1?
It assumes you want to open a *.xlog with the standard (flexible) file format
for 0.6 as defined in logfile.c.

Yes please. Works like a champ on my kenwood rig....

Strange thing. The only thing imaginable is a bug in glib. I will rewrite
that section a bit, maybe it helps.

Pas de problem. I will ask Jean-Luc Coulon, F5IBH, who did previous

Thanks for the test!
Will upload a rc2 soon. There is also a bug in rc1 which prevents you from
using the up/down arrow when a QSO is selected in the log. Xlog will freeze
after a couple of key hits (don't try this at home).
