JTAlert Support (VK3AMA)

The latest JTAlert version 2.50.9 is now available at https://hamapps.com/JTAlert/

Note: The installer is now distributed as a single multi-architecture x64 & x86 (64bit & 32bit) executable file. After installation when JTAlert is run it will automatically use the correct 64bit or 32bit files required by your Windows OS installation. It is important that the correct NET 5 Desktop Runtime is installed, 64bit or 32bit, matching the architecture of your Windows OS. If you're running 64bit Windows you need the 64bit (x64) version of the NET 5 Desktop Runtime, NOT the 32bit version.

The new installer has been examined by Microsoft and flagged as Virus/Trojan free. The MS Defender definitions files have been updated to exclude JTAlert 2.50.8 as a possible threat.

Full release notes are available at the end of this message. I strongly encourage all users to read these before installing this new JTAlert release.
