After being in development for more than six years, GNU Radio 3.8 is now available and is in fact considered a minor release update.

GNU Radio as a reminder is a tool-kit around signal processing blocks for supporting software-defined radios. GNU Radio paired with external RF hardware can allow for low-cost software-defined radio setups or for simulated radio setups too.

GNU Radio 3.8 comes after more than six years of work and converting the code-base to C++11. GNU Radio 3.8 also now depends upon Qt 5, compatibility with both Python 2 and Python 3, improved versatility to different components, and has a wide range of other changes.

More details on GNU Radio 3.8 are available from the project's GitHub. Those interested in software-defined radios can learn more about this GNU project at
