Subject: IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT EXPERIMENTAL MODE FT8

The planned protocol change in FT8 is now complete and tested. Effective
at 0000 UTC on July 8, 2017, you should stop using FT8 with any WSJT-X
code revision earlier than r7805.

If you are building WSJT-X for yourself from source code, on July 8 or
later you may upgrade to the latest code revision and recompile. You
will then have access to the latest version of FT8.

If you are waiting for pre-built installation packages: We plan to post
a release candidate for WSJT-X v1.8.0-rc1 configured for Windows, Linux,
and OS X very soon -- probably early next week. Thanks for your patience.
