> Hello, all my software users!

> TrueTTY Versions History
> Release version. Documentation was update.
> "Setup->English/Russian Ext. Charset" option for used alphabet
> in RTTY and AMTOR modes was made. When this option is selected,
> Russian/English shift is switched by the same way that Russian
> commercial station use.
> Minor change in upper/lower shift switching (when "Extended Baudot"
> is enabled) was made.
> More "smart" method of incorrect synchronization detecting in
> "AMTOR-Fast Sync" mode was made.
> AMTOR-FEC transmitting was made.
> Extended code table for AMTOR and RTTY (with high and low letters) was
> Extended table is switched on and off via "Setup->Extended Baudot" menu .
> '}' char doesn't work as `[rx] macrosequence synonym now.
> But you can insert this sequence by Alt-] or Ctrl-] keystroke.
> Some other minor changes were made.
> Once more speed option (300 Bd) in RTTY and ASCII modes was made.
> Frequency resolution (AFC accuracy) is highly improved in BPSK31 and
> modes. I hope it should improve decoding quality.
> User can edit text on macros buttons via "Edit Macros" menu now.
> Font parameters of that text can be changed via
> "Setup->Fonts and Colors->Macro Buttons Font Setup" menu.
> Macrosequences for CW-ID were made:
> `[cwrText] - to sent "Text" sequence by Morse code and switch TX off;
> `[cwtText] - to sent "Text" by Morse code and continue transmit with
> current mode;
> ~[cwrText] - to switch TX on, sent "Text" by Morse code and switch TX
> ~[cwtText] - to switch TX on, sent "Text" by Morse code and continue
> current mode;
> It is necessary to use underline symbol ("_") in place of space in
> When "BACKSPACE" handling is switching on, backspace symbols are right
> handled in "Sent" window now.
> AMTOR-FEC (SITOR-B) receiving was made. Try the "Fast Sync" option, you
> like it. To receive broadcast FEC, the "Normal/Reverse" button must be
> the same position as for RTTY, that is "Normal" in USB and "Reverse" in
> LSB. To receive SELFEC, switch this button in another position and
> switch on the "Fast Sync" option.
> In ASCII-7 and ASCII-8 modes "NIL" symbol is transmitted before each
> or "CR" symbol. It was made for better bit synchronization.
> ASCII-7 and ASCII-8 modes were implemented.
> I think that modes are not less convenient for QSO than PSK31,
> but they are not such sensitive to tuning accuracy and propagation
> "BACKSPACE" symbols handling was made in PSK and ASCII modes. That
> can be switched off by "Setup->Backspace Handling" menu.
> Support of Swedish version of Baudot code was made in RTTY mode.
> It is switched on by "Setup->Swedish Charset" menu.
