the release notes should tell you what changed. I haven't DL it yet myself to read it.

New firmware R08.07.00 also coming soon, by the looks. ... Readme.pdf

In short: No major changes. The "listen only" talkgroups idea is interesting. I assume the radio still affiliates, but it's prevented from initiating calls on a talkgroup.

Code: Select all

What's New in the CPS:
- Private Line Tone & Multiple Private Line (MPL) Tone on DIRECT Simplex
  This feature adds support for Private Line (PL) tones on direct simplex
channels and
  increases the number of programmable PL tones.
- Display Radio Alias ID on Mobiles
  This feature allows the user to view/read their Radio Alias ID from a
  equipped with the O9, O5, or O3 control head.
- Midtier Channel Increase
  This enhancement increases APX Conv Channel Options / Pers and Maximum
Number of
  programmable modes (Channels) to 1000.   
- Listen Only Talkgroup
  The CPS can now identify a talkgroup as 'listen only', thereby allowing a
  radio system to program talkgroups that are 'listen only.'
- Radio Alias ID Special Characters
  This feature allows a radio to utilize special characters when creating
  alias IDs.  Characters such as !@#$%^&*() are now allowed.
- CPS support for the Ultra Low Power SRX 2200 UHF R1 FM
  This feature will be fully supported with the release of the Ultra Low
power radio
  in a future release.

Supported APX Radios:
     APX 6000
     APX 6000XE
     APX 6500
     APX 7000
