Hi all,

I just posted 0.1.11b3 with a fairly extensive set of changes.  In
addition to support for a few new radios, this beta release has a lot of
usability and stability fixes.  If you haven't tried CHIRP in a while,
take a look.  If you're good at breaking things, help me out by pointing
to what you find.

Support for new models:
- Add ICOM IC-Q7A support
- Add ICOM CI-V radio support and preliminary IC-7200 driver
  - Hopefully at least IC-7000, IC-706 support coming soon
- Add Yaesu FT-7900 support

Usability enhancements:
- Performance improvements in the memory editor
- Import dialog improvements:
  - Color collisions in yellow
  - Color invalid locations in red
  - Grey-out memories that can't be imported into the current model
  - Better error handling and reporting
- Allow multi-select in the memory editor (and thus multi-delete)
- Add Edit menu with Cut/Copy/Paste and overwrite notification
- Hide more columns when not supported by a given model
- Offer radio's supported modes and tone modes in UI
- Improve per-radio validation of input

Stability/Fixes:
- Fix memory editor not actually saving single changes to a memory in
  some cases
- Fix exposing some internal-use column names in View->Columns
- Fix open/import of CSV files
- Port IC-2200 module to new driver model
- Port VX-7 module to new driver model
- Port FT-7800 module to new driver model
- Fix a 2820 bug after download
- Fix VX-8 checksum calculation

There are a lot of new features being added here and I want to get them
out to "regular users" in a formal release soon.  I'd really appreciate
some testing of this stuff, even if you report back with what you've
done and that "it worked".

Thanks!
