Martin Ewing AA6E
Revised May 20, 2014

RELEASE NOTES

June 9, 2014
Version 0.3.6

This version contains support for radios using the Si570 DDS chip as VFO.  For example, in various
SoftRock radios, like the RxTx Ensemble.  A pure Python USB interface is provided that requires the
libusb-1.0 wrapper from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/libusb1/1.2.0 .

The current edition of the supplementary material for the QST article is now provided in the GIT repository
and in the downloadable zip file in ODT (Open Document Text) and PDF (Portable Document) formats.

May 20, 2014
Version 0.3.0

The enclosed file "TPP_qst_suppl_2014_04a.odt" (with .pdf and .doc versions) is an expanded version of the article printed in QST (April, 2014).  It has been updated, but it is probably not quite current, since the project has continued in development after publication.

To use this version, copy the tinypythonpanadapter-code directory to a convenient location on your computer.  Follow directions in the document above to load or build the required resources for your platform.
