Roger Bille, SM5NRK, has released an update to javAPRSFilter which has
now been installed on all core servers and most tier 2 servers.  The new
release is documented at
http://www.aprs-is.net/javaprssrvr/javaprsfilter.htm

Roger has added two features to the new javAPRSFilter.  All previous
features still perform as the have before.  The first new feature is the
ability to specify the latitude and longitude in range and area filters
in decimal degrees (comma or period are acceptable decimal points).
This gives you much better granularity when specifying geographic areas.

The second feature is the ability to specify exclude filters.  Think of
the current filter types as include filters.  In other words,
r/33/-96/200 says "include in the data stream to the client any packets
from stations which are within 200 km of 33N/96W".  You can now specify
r/33/-96/200 -p/AE5PL  This says "include in the data stream to the
client any packets from stations which are within 200 km of 33N/96W
except any stations with AE5PL as a prefix".  It is important to not
that this only affects what the filter approves for sending to the
client.  It does not affect standard port operation such as messaging
support.  Messaging for IGates and clients remain unaffected by filter
settings.

Any "include" filter can be made "exclude" by simply adding a hyphen
(dash) (-) to the beginning of the specific filter.

Roger and I monitor the APRS SIG for any questions.
