Just a comment regarding the TNC-X/XDigi.

Its stable have the functions needed for a digipeater
Its easy to build
It can send data to a computer even as a digipeater.
The latest update are the remote function.

So development is not stoped. One digi bug was removed and had been 
there for a long time because of some confusion i think.

When the remote function was introducted i tried to provoke some 
errors/bugs. And based on this i got several new updates the same day 
and some after 2-3days. And now its running ok and i don't think others 
have found "new" bugs.

So if you just want a digipeater this product is great.
If you want other functionalities then maybe other products are ok.

New functions for the XDigi?? Maybe if people asks for new functions :o)
