APRS for Linux
X-APRS is being developed with the same source code that is used for MacAPRS and WinAPRS. The cross-platform framework used for Mac and Windows is being ported to X-Windows. X-APRS is written using Xt, Xlib and LesTif (Motif) on RedHat Linux 5.2. Other platforms will also be made available such as PowerPC Linux, Sun etc.
Release is expected to be at the DCC (Digital Communications Conference) at the end of September
