I have made available a new version of RROS2. This version now supports the Digital authentication system which is used in upstate New York and Hawaii. Although it has been tested in New York it should work in Hawaii as well. The Toshiba support is the same as it was in the previous RROS2 but improvements are coming.

Please send me your suggestions / wish lists for new versions of RROS2. I still intend to merge rrclientd into RROS2 for full HP support but that's a tough one so it might take a while.

Site History

Well, work has been keeping me busy again so very little has been updated, changed, or fixed.

Confusion regarding the and seems to be clearing. They appear to be the same network. More or less anyway.
