  • v1.415 release

    v1.415  October 20, 2020
        Admin network tab: added Ethernet MTU selection option of 1440 (default 1500) which
            seems to help some installations using 4G Internet connections.
        Bug fixes:
            Well-known DNS server 1.1.1.1 is always added to end of /etc/resolv.conf file.
            "Photo max height" field can no longer be set blank (which prevented page load).

  • Frequency drift

    That brings up an interesting point. The Kiwi GPS software lacks most of the features of commercial equivalents, which were developed over many decades now. One of them is masking out sats (i.e. not using them for position/time solutions) if their elevation angle in the sky is too low. There are various reasons this is a good idea as you might imagine.

  • Obtaining date/time from the Kiwi's GPS [fixed in v1.417]

    v1.410,411  October 7, 2020
        GPS time-of-day (TOD) correction now works even if the Kiwi date is set incorrectly.
            Previously the Kiwi week day number had to match GPS for TOD correction to work.
            The GPS code currently does not know how to set the Kiwi date because it does
            not parse the GPS almanac.

  • Redirect to the next kiwisdr.

    Apparently this happens when the last free slot is trying to occupy 2 users at the same time.
    I'm not sure what you mean exactly. Do you mean when two users are trying to connect simultaneously to the last channel of the first Kiwi in a redirected chain? (e.g. channel #4 of a 4-channel Kiwi1 that re-directs to Kiwi2). The redirection code was tested pretty carefully. But of course that doesn't mean there isn't a bug someplace.

    Also, it would be nice at the time of the update to keep the ability to redirect to the next kiwi instead of the “update” message, if it's real.
    That's an interesting idea. Hadn't occurred to me before.
