Once again you've done an amazing job! I'm running WIN-10 on an old and underpowered PC, but the speed and look of 2.50 is wonderful. You have hit another home run!
You will likely see further speed improvements when the old JTAlert window is finally banished. Currently all the alerting code (this is high cpu usage) and logging code still lives within the bowels of the old JTAlert, old synchronous code (no multi-threading) that has to process the decodes and send the results to the new Callsigns window, via the Manager process, as udp data. When the old code is gone, all processing will happen within modern multi-threaded asynchronous code, which is much faster.
Also all the newly introduced 2.50.0 windows run much of their UI drawing routines within the GPU of the video card, taking stress off the CPU and utilizing much faster dedicated video drawing code of DirectX.
