I finally tracked down the JTAlert non-coloring of decodes in the release candidates.
WSJT-X2.1.2 works correctly, but the -rcs don't when the decode string contains a positive report. Reports that are negative are colored correctly.
Tested both rc2 & rc3


"AA1AA VK3AMA +12" & "AA1AA VK3AMA R+12" - FAIL

"AA1AA VK3AMA -12" & "AA1AA VK3AMA R-12" - OK

JTAlert sending the coloring command containing the "VK3AMA R-12" string correctly colors while "VK3AMA R+12" fails with the only difference is the number sign in the string sent to WSJT-X.

This report has already been sent to the WSJT-X dev-list.

 Wow, kudos to you Laurie. Even when I knew what to look for it took me ages to spot.
Where did you get the clues for that one?
All the best

This fault persists in the latest version of WSJT-X v2.2
