Current XMLog Version
xmlog701.zip - This .zip file contains the current version of XMLog, version 7.01
XMLog Version Notes
- XMLog version 7.01 includes a fix for a bug that would have treated dates with two-digit years (mm/dd/yy or dd/mm/yy) with year values starting with 20 or greater as 19xx instead of 20xx. For example, 01/01/20 would be treated as 01/01/1920 instead of 01/01/2020. Every XMLog user should upgrade to version 7.01 or later before January 1, 2020.
XMLog-TwoDigitYears.rtf - provides some more details concerning this change.
- XMLog version 6.87 includes support for the new DXCC entity "Republic of Kosovo" (Z6).
- XMLog version 6.65 includes changes relating to LoTW and TQSL supporting an update to the ADIF specification for QSO modes. Older versions of TQSL did not support this new scheme and resulted in error messages about "illegal" modes like PSK. TQSL version 2.2 supports the new ADIF format so if you see TQSL errors about unknown modes be sure you are running the latest version of TQSL.
