The lattest package ("2.02test") is already that.
Since then I have done a few small feature and bug-fixes:

 * Filtering of MICe position data fails.
   F4FXL found the bug on MICe parser, and provided initial patch.
 * Telemetry & beacons only on radio ports, never on pseudo-ports like APRSIS.
 * Beacon transmit only if address information is AX.25 conformant.
 * Some editing on the aprx-manual.odt/.pdf

Then my summer vacation came to ab end, and hobby projects are again
on wait status...

To present Aprx feature requests, please send them to email list:
   aprx-software at googlegroups.com

There is a filter that non-subscribers messages go to moderation hold,
so becoming a subscriber at first is advisable.
