-Show driver version in 'About' window.
-New network driver with fixes for scanning on multiple NICs (network scan for devices)

-DME tab and options added for devices with AVIO option
-Identification options added within VOR and ILS tabs
-Bug fixed - error with conversion of port number string for devices where a port number if not supplied (including devices with older firmware which does not support the device port number setting).
|10.07.2020||126.96.36.199||- Added support for FCP AMPL MODE and FCP FREQ+AMPL mode in FCP tab|

|20.05.2020||188.8.131.52||-Ensure LF Generator UI controls are visible for devices when their firmware supports a function to set the LFG frequency|
-Additional menu ‘Info->Connection Settings’
-Allows modification of the default TCP port number for connections (usual default is 18)
-Allows provision of a custom port to override the current ‘default’ setting
-Within the ‘Network Settings’ dialog:
-You can now change the TCP port the device opens up for inbound connections
-You can enable ‘multiple instances’ to connect to a single device from multiple UI instances
-Enable ref. output options if the device doesn't report a min or max, to permit backward compatibility.
|30.04.2020||184.108.40.206||-Ensure REF output and CW RF blanking options are settable for the APMS20G (enabled on UI)|
|20.04.2020||220.127.116.11||-Manages the options of the connected device more closely, to show only those relevant to the current hardware; removal of redundant options, for example, for the APUASYN displaying the ‘Low Frequency Generator’ and the ‘Low AM Noise’. 100MHz reference output option made available, sync-sweep settings can be modified on APUAYSN.|
