Release Notes.

2.16.16 (18-Nov-2020)

  *** IMPORTANT: WSJT-X Multicast UDP Server setting requirement
  *** For WSJT-X 2.3.0-rc2 and future versions when using a multicast
  *** address for the UDP Server the "Outgoing Interfaces" selector needs
  *** to have the Loopback interface enabled.

  *** Includes Callsign database file version 2020-11-18 (2020-Nov-18)

  New Features:

    - Decodes Window Online Indicators: Callsigns that are online for text message
       receipt will be shown with an underline, the same as the main JTAlert
       Callsigns display. A new online indicator, a filled circle, can be shown
       in the top-right corner of the Callsign display cell.

    - Text Messages: Can now be initiated via the Callsign right-click context menu
       of the Decodes Window.


    - Callsign QSL Indicators: Striped QSL indicators have been removed.
       Only flag style indicators are used. The position of the indicators is
       now fixed, Lotw in the top-left corner and Eqsl in the bottom-right corner
       of the Callsign display. This change is for both the main JTAlert window
       and the Decodes window.

    - WSJT-X Decode Highlighting: "73" or "RR73" decode highlighting no longer
       require the CQ Alert to be enabled. A dedicated setting is now available.
       See the "Applications -> WSJT-X / JTDX" section of the Settings window.
       Note: This and other color highlighting is not available for JTDX.


    - Decodes Window: Showing 6 character grids instead of 4 characters for
       compound callsigns (typicaly seen for portable and special event calls)
       when a log entry for the callsign exists with a 6 character grid.

    - Grid Alert: If the Grid alert is enabled a 6 character grid would be
       alerted despite its 4 character grid being set as not needed after the
       Alert database rebuild was run.

    - Popup Notifications: Popups like "Logging Confirmation" and "Text Message
       Reciept" not displaying if the main JTAlert window was mimimized (hidden)
       at the time the popop was shown.

    - TX PWR: Value change not remembered when set to no value (empty string).
