ChangeLog for Version 3.6.2

Build system changes

  • Added support for setting SYSCONFDIR

Top-level component changes

  • A new top-level component, gr-filter, has been created. This component implements all the filter-related functionality that is in gnuradio-core, and uses the new style 3.7 API. The filter blocks in gnuradio-core are now deprecated; but will remain in gnuradio-core until the 3.7 release. Developers are encouraged to begin using the new blocks in preparation.

  • gr_and_const_bb: adds bb type to gr_and_const* block
  • gr_annotator_raw: allows tagging stream with pmt key, value pair from outside GNU Radio
  • gr_endian_swap: change item endianess through block
  • gr_message_burst_source: turn received messages into a stream and tag them
  • gr_tag_debug: debug display of all tags going through block`
  • digital_gfsk_demod, digital_gfsk_mod: Gaussian Frequency Shift Keying modulator and demodulator

New feature additions

  • Support has now been added for ARM processors that do not implement NEON.
  • gr-uhd has added rx tagging for changes in sample rate and center frequency.
  • Added support for serializing pmt tuples
  • Added BER/SNR simulation example
  • Removed gruel dependency on inet.h
