KLog 0.9.0 released: Kontest goes back to KLog again

After some time adding new features and doing quite a lot of bugfixing, I have decided to release KLog 0.9.0.
For those who follow this development, you will see that KLog moved to Kontest and then came back to KLog again… I decided to keep the name KLog (at least for a while!).

So here is the release, enjoy it and please report any bug you find (I am pretty sure that you will find some!)

IMPORTANT: As KLog has been fully rewritten since version 0.7.0, it is still not been translated to many languages. Today it is only translated to English and Spanish so, if you want to help KLog to be in your language, send me an email!

KLog 0.9.0 (Nov 2014):

The Debian package will be uploaded to the Debian servers soon.

The Changelog says:

November-2014 – 0.9.0
– Ensures the ASCII requirement of ADIF.
– Updated the Preferences dialog.
– Added the About Qt help menu.
– Bugfix: Selected DX-Cluster servers were not used to connect.
– Bugfix: When selecting QSL received/sent with right click, date was not updated.
– Bugfix: Fixed the FileManager::adifReadLog to be able to read logs with several lines per QSO.
– Some other minor bugfixes.
– New feature: It is possible to show Imperial System (Miles instead of Km) data. (TNX – KF5JNU)
– New feature: It is possible to mark/look for & export requested QSL.
– New feature: It is possible to automatically mark(or not) a QSL as requested by the DX when the DX’s card is received.
– New feature: It is possible to show (or not) the callsign used in the search box.
– New feature: KLog uses bigcty.csv for normal DX & will use cty.csv for contesting.

Kontest 0.0.2-alpha (Qt4 backport) windows installer

I think I have it.

I have fixed the bug in the windows installer package of Kontest.

The package showed an error “Driver not loaded” just when the database was created so, thanks to Google I found the fix in the great stackoverflow.

So, in a few words, just add a sqldrivers folder and copy the qsqlite4.dll file in it before creating the package and you will have it!

I have done some (just a few, to be honest!) tests in a clean windows virtual host and it worked like a charm so I hope it is OK for most of the systems out there.

You can find the file http://sourceforge.net/projects/kontest/files/ in the same place as the previous days.

As always, thank you for testing and sending the bug reports!

 

Kontest 0.0.2-alpha (Qt4 backport)

This is a quick post to tell you that I have just released a quick backport of Kontest to Qt4 (4.8.5) as some of you have told me that Qt5 is not OK for your system.

You can download from here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/kontest/files/

For the binary packages (windows & OSX) you will have to wait a bit more or help me with them.  It’s been the first time I release software for Windows or OSX and I think I still need to learn some things 🙂

Thanks for testing!

Kontest 0.0.1-alpha or KLog 1-alpha: New alpha release

I have rewritten completely KLog into a new software, Kontest. The name is something still to be defined so if you have any preference, please tell me what you think! Today it is called Kontest, because I wanted to give KLog contest capabilities.

Today, let me call KLog to the previous software and Kontest to the new one, so we can understand each other. 🙂

What’s new with Kontest?

My first intention was to provide all the functionalities of KLog into Kontest, before releasing, to try to avoid the maintenance of two different software packages, however, there are some differences:

  • The main difference between KLog and Kontest is that Kontest can be run in Linux, OSX and Windows.
  • Kontest uses an sqlite database and can be executed in memory or in a file, providing speed or security of your data, you choose!
  • Kontest has an improved GUI, with some more fields to manage data.

What about the contest capabilities?
Even ifKontest has been designed to allow an “easy” integration of new contest from the developer point of view although today it is not supporting ANY contest…

My intention was to provide all the KLog functionalities first, and once the day-to-day logging is working as KLog, I will start working on the contest capabilities.

What can I do now?

  • First of all, remember that this is an ALPHA release so it may (I should use will) have many bugs. Don’t trust this software to be your only logging software (yet) and know that you can loose your data!! I am just releasing this version because I believe in the RERO development philosophy.
  • Join the mailing list. We will use the KLog’s mailing list. So please, subscribe and send all the bugs and suggestions you have.
  • Help with the development. You can join me to create the best multiplatform hamradio logging software we can.

So, how can I download Kontest?

Today, you can only download Kontest from Sourceforge.

Check the following link for the downloads:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/kontest/files/

That’s all.

Again, don’t hesitate to report any bug and/or suggestion you may have.

I hope you will enjoy Kontest!

KLog 0.6.1 – released: Another bugfix release

As I told you some months ago, I keep rewriting a new software… but my free time is close to zero 🙁 sometimes code some lines but my time in radio is mostly spent in the radio 🙂

However… yesterday I was DXing in 50Mhz and I noticed that the bearing was not correct and the coding-virus made me fix the bug ASAP.

So … here is the data of this new release:

DOWNLOAD:
Download KLog 0.6.1 from:

The Debian package has been already uploaded to the Debian servers.

This releases has the following Changelog:

June – 2013 – 0.6.1

  • Bug fixed: Locator was not properly calculated due to a sign difference management from KLog and CTY.DAT.
  • GUI updated: The cursor position management of the QRZ box has been improved to ease the operation.

As always, KLog is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, German, Serbian, Galician and Swedish.

Thanks for your help and I hope you find KLog useful.

KLog 0.6.0 released… 10 years of KLog and some news…

KLog is now 10 years old!! Wow time goes really fast! 🙂

Last release of KLog was one year ago… and this release is not adding many things… Bug fix as last one.
However… does it mean that KLog is dead?
Not it is not. 🙂

During this time I have been rewriting ALL KLog and now, the new software can be compiled for Windows and (probably) OSX (although I have still not tested OSX).
Of course… the new code will be released for Linux, as today !!
The idea behind this is making available the free software I am doing for more hams.

KLog 0.5.9 released

Christmas holidays is always a great time for some coding 🙂 so I found some time to fix two bugs (this one and that one) that were reported just after the announce of KLog-0.5.8 … and as Eric S. Raymond says in The Cathedral and The Bazaar, I release early, release often Leer más »

KLog 0.5.7 released

It’s time for another KLog release.

KLog 0.5.7 is not a very big release… but it comes with some additions that may be nice for some of you. As I was announcing in my previous post about KLog.

I have added a very basic function capable to export all the needed QSO that has not been QSLed to a file… that can be imported to a label software to create the labels for the QSLs. I will continue working in the label generation feature of KLog for next releases.

The Changelog for this release reads as follows:

November-2010 0.5.7
– New feature: Added the Export needed QSL that allows to create an ADIF file with all the QSO with new ones and new bands still not confirmed that has not been QSLed.
The objective is to export it to a QSL or label printing software (until KLog implements that feature).
– Updated translations: SV by SM4ABE.
– GUI improved: Added sliders to be able to move panels.
– GUI improved: Changing the band combobox changes the TX Freq box and viceversa.
– Minor fix: The PROGRAMVERSION tag in log was not properly formated.

You can download KLog 0.5.7 from the mainsite.
You can also have more information in the main page of KLog or following the KLog’s tag in this blog.

KLog is free and open software and you can join the KLog’s team if you wish to help the development.
Please, send me all the bug reports and suggestions you have to improve KLog!

I hope you will like KLog.

Translations needed for KLog 0.5.0

The following text comes from an email sent to the KLog’s mailing lists to ask for help to translate KLog.

===============
Good afternoon,

During last summer I started the migration of KLog to the new Qt4.[1]

It is not being easy but I have received a VERY valuable help of Andrew, who joined the KLog’s development team and we changed some things of the development mode of KLog[2].

Anyway, KLog 0.5.0 is not far from be ready for distribution and I am writting this email to request your help with the translation of KLog.

You will be able to find the PO/POT files in the SVN server of KLog[3].

If you have some spare time and you want to help KLog a lot of users will thank you.

I still don’t have a final date for KLog… I want to close some bugs[4] before releasing the QT port of KLog although I think I will not close all bugs before releasing, just the most “criticals” and any bug that may cause data loss or data corruption.

You can download KLog from the SVN and start testing it. I will be happy to receive all your comments.

Thank you very much for your help.
