Dear Glen,

I'm not going to repeat in detail what I said a couple of times to you, but: What you wish for doesn't, and cannot, exist. Not from a technical point of view, as much as from an organisational, resources or software quality point of view, so please stop beating that poor horse.

So, kindly, understand it as a compliment when I say:

By now, I trust you will be able to deal with it.

Best regards,

Thanks for all your efforts.

However still there are MANY external packages that don’t work beyond 3.7,
so we're stuck in 3.7 world.  (We have inched to 3.8 but SDRPlay was not well 

I know this is difficult, but please try to ADD capabilities without destroying
old capabilities.  From the Nubi point of view, it is easier for an expert to 
both SWIG and PYBIND than it is to figure out the transition, when the Nubi 
does not
care a bit what the difference is.

Thanks again,

We are officially ending maintenance of v3.7. There will be no further v3.7.X.X 
releases, and pull requests will no longer be accepted for the maint-3.7 branch.

The last v3.7 release (v3.7.14.0) was over 18 months ago and there are only a 
handful of unreleased commits on the maint-3.7 branch. Packagers/distributions 
have moved on to newer versions. Additionally, we are not set up to do 
automated testing on maint-3.7 and need to apply our development/maintenance 
efforts to v3.8, v3.9 and the upcoming v3.10.

Of course, this is open source, so there is no End of Life if packagers are 
still interested in v3.7. If you still package v3.7, please let us know.
