    WSJT -X Version 2.0

    WSJT-X 2.0 will be a major program release with many new features.

    The first candidate release, WSJT-X 2.0-rc1, is now available for download and use by beta testers. This candidate release is your first chance to test the new features and provide feedback to the WSJT Development Group.

    New features and enhancements since Version 1.9.1 are summarized here:

    The WSJT-X User Guide has not yet been upgraded for Version 2.0. If you plan to use the beta-test release candidate, be sure to read the "Quick Start Guide to WSJT-X 2.0" first:

    http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/...WSJT-X_2.0.pdf

    Further details and a download link to the Windows installation package can be found on the WSJT-X web site:

    http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx.html

    Installation packages for Linux and macOS should be available in a few days.

    We look forward to your feedback on WSJT-X 2.0-rc1. Reports should be sent to the wsjt-devel email list, wsjt-devel@lists.sourceforge.net.
    You must subscribe to the list to post there.

    WSJT-X 2.0 A fifth candidate release ("RC5") of WSJT-X 2.0 has been available for download and use by beta testers since 26 November 2018.
    The "Quick-Start Guide to WSJT-X 2.0" has been updated, and must be read thoroughly before using RC5:
    http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/...WSJT-X_2.0.pdf
    "RC5 is stable, works well, and fixes the known problems in RC4.
    It is likely that the General Availability (GA) release of WSJT-X 2.0, scheduled for 10 December 2018, will be nearly identical to RC5.
    We recommend using RC5 (and therefore the v2.0 FT8 protocol) in the conventional FT8 sub-bands at audio TX frequencies 2000 Hz and higher.
    Inevitably the necessary transition from v1.x to v2.0 protocols for FT8 and MSK144 will cause some confusion and cross-protocol interference.
    Users of v1.9.1 and earlier are unable to decode transmissions from users of RC4 and later, and vice-versa.
    As more users upgrade their software to WSJT-X 2.0 - and particularly after the General Availability (GA) release on 10 December 2018 - the new protocol should start to dominate the conventional FT8 sub-bands.
    As soon as possible after 10 December 2018, and certainly by 1 January 2019, everyone should be using WSJT-X 2.0 or a compatible v2.0 version of derivative programs such as JTDX or MSHV".
    Download links for RC5 on Windows, Linux, and macOS can be found on the WSJT-X web page:

        Information from Joe Taylor, K1JT:
        By December 10 or very soon afterward, everyone should upgrade to the full WSJT-X 2.0 release.
        Some are calling this "D-day for WSJT-X 1.9."
        Recommended is reading this:
        https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar...WSJT-X_2.0.pdf,
        with version 2.0 not compatible with version 1.9.
