After two months we have new version! There are no big changes in the code, only two new features and a few bugs fixed. We also have the cqrlog icon back! DEB packages for Ubuntu Trusty, Xenial, Yakkety and Zesty are ready on Launchpad. If you are using my personal PPA, new version will be part of system updates.
More information in Download section.

Petr-OK2CQRIn this episode, we have a great interview with Linux software developer and ham radio enthusiast from the Czeck Republic, Petr Hlozek – OK2CQR. He is the author of CQRlog and Unfortunately, Petr’s audio was a little hot and nothing we could do made it better. Our sincerest apologies. Sound problems aside, we hope you enjoy this fascinating look into the life and mind of an Open Source ham.
