Typically when they release new firmware for the G4/G5 they also release new programming software to go with the the new firmware. Its recommended you keep the same programming software as the firmware. So dont use new firmware with old software.

The new software and firmware has been released to our dealers so that they can acclimatize themselves to the changes to better support the customers. Full release should be in a few days.

I don't believe so, that's probably next year, but would be nice if I'm wrong.

Ill be happy either way.

Yep. Been on for a while.

MPSCS is actually pushing it out pretty actively and they secured contract pricing.

The firmware will come zipped and when you unzip it, there will be an executable you run. It will find the firmware so don't move things around. The radio should be on and connected via USB. The executable program is self explanatory and flashing the radio is easy. I will try to make a video after the firmware is publicly released to help others.

New Device and Programming Software Release
With the new device software (V0.93.017 I R00) and programming software (R0.3.9 R02) a number of enhancements have been added.
The enhancements are:
1. Added new paging functionality for QCII over P25 Selecitve Call and Monitor Modes
2. Voice Memo can be disabled in programming software.
3. Out of Range audible alert can be disabled (still displayed on display) in programming software.
4. Unread Message Alert has been added for Voice Messages that have been stored and not read.
5. Ability to convert G4 files to a G5 file.
6. Call Alert is enabled
7. Monitor Mode was removed in favor of using a Wildcard TGID of FFFF (HEX).
8. Many "under the hood" changes to provide better overall performance.

The bug fixes are:
1. With R11P SW- Non-alerting TGIDs will no longer vibrate when the Selector Knob setting is set to Vibrate Mode.
2. With R11P SW-When pager is in deep discharge it will not charge unless the battery is removed and re-inserted. This has been fixed.
3. With R11P SW-When pager is off and transitions to ultra low power mode the 3 LEDS go on and eventually go off when the pager is fully charged. This has been fixed.
