HamSphere 3.0 is still undergoing inhouse testing and will be available for beta testing soon.
The new release is aiming for reliability in both receive and transmit. The new system is utilizing multi servers and we are testing with so called "Virtual Cloud" servers in different parts of the world. Here is a quick screenshot of the new release coming up soon. The biggest difference is the login screen that is fully HTML driven. This calls for dynamic configuration and multi language support. Please note the server selector. Servers can either be automatically choosen on best ping times or manually overridden. Accounts are as from 3.0 created and maintained in the client. Also the subscriptions are done via the client.
