    • Python 3 support!

Announcements

  • GR Folks will be at the CCCamp!
  • We will apply for a FOSDEM devroom again (Free Software Radio)
  • We are experimenting with the idea of office hours, still fleshing out the details, but the gist of it is that we want to provide a way to connect experienced SDR developers with newcomers
