Unfortunately, we can't say for sure what will be done, and what will
*not* be done, and when. You know Win-Test is not a full-time job, and
its spare time development must comply with the real life. I understand
it can be very frustrating for some users, but we prefer to promise
nothing, rather than disappointing them later. In short, I can't answer
with accuracy to your question.
That said, its current GUI will stay the same for sure (ie the way to
navigate across the log, the child window included or not in the main
wnd, etc.) and its general user interface too. We are also *VERY*
demanding on the overall stability of the software, and it is one of the
reasons why we're now only adding a little number of features at each
release, to limit side effects. WT is used by many large multi-ops teams
and DXPeds (K5D used it for example) and we don't want to take any risk
to compromise tons of QSO (or a contest entry) for a minor requirement
or a fix that can be avoided or circumvented.
I recently had an opportunity to discuss with a very well known and
experienced European contester who won several CQWW (with or without
WT), and he told me that (in his opinion) all needed features to win a
contest were yet included in Win-Test and future additions can be today
considered as unnecessary ;-) Nevertheless some additions, like the
rotors control, will be included someday for sure because it frees time
and keep the op. focused on the pile-up.
As a side note, even if we limit our emails on this list, be assured we
read all polite posts (even the longest, that takes time) and
suggestions expressed on this list.
