Hi folks,

xlog-0.8 has been released, see


There were no major changes compared to 0.8rc2. I have provided packages
for debian/woody and rpm's. Both are compiled without hamlib support for
the time being. If you want hamlib, grab the source and use:

./configure --enable-hamlib

Here is a full list of changes, compared to version 0.7:

* Update automake, gettext and autoconf versions.
* Add defaults for logging band, mode, power, txrst, rxrst, freefield1,
freefield2 and remarks. They can be set from the settings->defaults
dialog. Use 'Click All' or Ctrl+k to use them.
* Add a 'Worked Before' dialog. When activated by selecting
Tools->Worked Before, a sorted list of callsigns is displayed while you
enter a call in the callsign field.
* You can set the number of columns in the 'Worked Before' dialog by
selecting Settings->Dialogs from the menu.
* The widely used cty.dat file is now used for dxcc lookups.
* If cty.dat fails for some reason, entries can be added to xlog.dat.
* Remote logging has been adapted for the 2 free fields.
* In the preferences dialog you can choose to add remote data directly
to the log, or to the QSO frame first.
* 'Type and find' has been added for the name, QTH, Locator and Remarks
fields. It is enabled by default. You can switch it off in the
preferences dialog.
* Printing is now done in the background with fork().
