It is now more than two months ago that I have released the last development snapshot of gpredict and it would be very appropriate to make status of what has been going on since. So here it comes.
Ten days have passed since the release of grig 0.7 and I have not received any bug reports until today. Berndt, one of the BSD guys, has discovered that grig is not installable because $(DESTDIR)/share/grig is not created prior to attemting to copy files into the directory. Fortunately, this stuff is done as one of the last things during install, so the installation will work and only the README, ChangeLog and similar files will be missing. I fired up my laptop and could confirm the same behaviour on Suse Linux.
Two weeks ago I had a correspondence with Richard VK1RJ concerning some problems with the controlling the TenTec Pegasus. After examining the debug output it turned out that the hamlib backend was working all right but it didn’t set any initial values for the AF and RF levels leaving them at the default minimum level.
