Laurie, VK3AMA <groups05@...>

JTAlert 2.3.0 is ready for download.

Starting with this release, JTAlert and JTMacros are included into the one JTAlert distribution package.
Both programs as still separate executables, but JTMacros will no longer be provided as a separate download.

Important JTMacros setup for existing, pre 2.3.0, JT-Macros installations.

  1. Leave old JT-Macros installed.
  2. Install 2.3.0 JTAlert release which will perform the JTAlert upgrade
  3. Run JTAlert and new JTMacros at least once to perform some necessary config directory changes. NOTE: if you have JTAlert set to auto-start JT-Macros, the old JT-Macros will start. Close it and manually run the new JTMacros to get config updated and moved to new directory location.
  4. Uninstall old JT-Macros.
  5. Run JTAlert and update the auto-start path for JTMacros if you use that option.
