Just in case people are not aware, gr-osmosdr also supports many devices via SoapySDR bindings.

SDRPlay, proprietary or not, works with modern versions of GNU Radio via the built-in gr-soapy module and the soapysdrplay driver module. Of course, there are always improvements to be made and I hope the we or others can keep supporting the widest possible variety of hardware.

If SDRPlay doesn't support newer versions of GR then the problem is SDRPlay (a for-profit company that you gave money to) and their drivers (which I believe are proprietary?), not the free software involved.

In any case, GR 3.7 will be available forever and nobody can take that away from you.

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 supported).

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 enable
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,
