I received packs last month with that firmware. No idea what was fixed though. Some ended up getting rolled back to 2.27.32 when I was trying to bring much older packs up to date. I really wish their firmware update method was a little more...informative.

2.29.32 is on their site.  Improvements in multipath audio filtering.

More Improvements?  Those were listed as improvements in the older firmware.

You can never stop trying to improve performance issues related to multipath interference if your goal is perfectly reproduced audio at all times.  It's a monumentally difficult problem to mitigate.

Yes, I get that.  I have yet to see release notes that actually indicate more improvements were made in that area for 2.29.32.

The latest firmware I find on the website is 2.25.50.

To expand on this, it's not just issues related to multipath. It's incremental improvements across the board; performance, function and features. The difference is now with SDR's, and any microprocessor or ASIC based hardware, the OEM can push updates and fixes as fast they can identify and solve a problem, and then code and test the solution. Previously there were incremental hardware mods or upgrades that took longer to resolve and resulted in multiple generations/versions of what was essentially the same model device.
