I just downloaded it and tried it on my KG-UV6D Ver 2.  It does not act 
properly after clearing a memory channel using the CLEAR feature.  When 
I went to the CONFIGURATION SETTINGS tab I could not go back to MAIN 
MEMORIES tab.

I'm going to wait this Beta version out for awhile before using it again.

Also, it has an import feature that allows you to import files from the 
KG-UVD1P to be loaded into the KG-UVD6D.  I would be real careful with 
this until it is proven to work OK.  I was warned by the dealer that I 
bought my 6D from not to try and load the 1P file into the 6D, as it 
will "brick" the radio and they haven't figured out a way to get it 
back.  I'll give it some time before I try this import feature.

73, Joe, K1ike
