wsjt-x 2.0

WSJT-X 2.0 is a major upgrade

Go to New Features in WSJT-X 2.0 for a detailed description of its new features.  Further technical information (primarily of interest to programmers) is available here.

Release Schedule: Because the FT8 and MSK144 protocols will not be backward compatible with those in Version 1.9.1, there will be a staged schedule for testing and eventual release.  Target dates for candidate releases are as follows:

  • September 17, 2018:   -rc1        Expires October 31, 2018
  • October 15, 2018:       -rc#        Expires November 30, 2018
  • November 12, 2018:    -rc#        Expires December 31, 2018
  • December 10, 2018:      GA        Full release of WSJT-X 2.0

Additional bug-fix releases may occur between the four-week intervals shown above. For example, release candidate 2 (-rc2) was made on September 25. The candidates targeted for release on October 15 and November will therefore bear tag numbers 3 and 4, or higher.

Candidate Release WSJT-X 2.0-rc2
Candidate releases are intended for beta testers: individuals interested in testing the program’s new features and providing feedback to the WSJT Development Group.  At the time of this release we have not yet completed the WSJT-X 2.0 User Guide.  Potential users of the candidate release should read Quick-Start Guide to WSJT-X 2.0 before proceeding.
