ARRL Releases New Logbook Software

A new version of the ARRL's software library for interacting with its Logbook of the World electronic confirmation system was released on May 20. According to the ARRL Letter, version 1.14 of the TrustedQSL library allows users to sign and upload log files in a single operation, and reports apparent errors in station location (such as incorrect CQ zones) to the user. It also notifies you of contacts that you have already uploaded. The ARRL says upgrading to the new software is not mandatory but is encouraged.

UPDATE: The ARRL says release of the new software has been delayed due to the discovery of three "bugs" that have since been corrected. However, making changes required additional testing, so the League said it was delaying the release of the software until the end of May.
