This release is a really fantastic release. There's so much to talk about.
First, I'd like to than our developers and beta testers who put tons of time into this release.
Second, I'd like to tell you what's in the release.
Label Printing - As of this release, 100% of the open defects related to printing are resolved. We've had a "love/hate" relationship with labels for many years. [Editorial note: I've never been happy with our labeling before. But I'm absolutely thrilled with it now.]
There are a number of really great things in this release.
Here is included in this release:
Bulk Callsign Lookup – this feature will allow you to select multiple QSOs in your log and perform the callsign lookup function on them. You will be able to choose whether to fill only empty fields or fill all fields in the QSO. If your enabled lookup sources have data to fill those fields, it will do so automatically.
This will be extremely helpful for those who import logs into HRD Logbook from other programs. This feature will be perpetually available to customers whose Software Maintenance and Support expiration date is beyond the release date for this release.
This release completes the work that began with 188.8.131.52. In general, the intent of this release is to resolve a number of long-standing customer complaints about callsign lookup (the QTH field was not correct and many fields were not being populated at all; sources like QRZ.com, HamQTH, QRZCQ, and HamCall all presented data differently and Logbook wasn't correctly parsing the data). This also solves a long-standing customer complaint where QSOs with stations that are not part of a DXCC country (like maritime mobile and aeronautical mobile) were being counted in DXCC awards totals. Some users reported a "Encountered and improper argument" error in DM-780; fixed.
