Hi to all the Chirp's users out there.

Since last night daily (20160616) Chirp support an Alias feature that 
make radio clones to be showed in the user interface (UI) as it's own 
vendor/model.

This will ease the use of the software and avoid some head aches for new 
comers, as you don't need to know before hand that for your "FooBar 
3000" radio you must select the "ChinaRadio 2345" as vendor/model in the 
UI at clone time.

So far just the below mentioned radios support this feature,*but there 
it has a catch all you need to know:*

As the radios are clones, this alias feature mask the vendor/model in 
the download/upload UI procedure for convenience, but once you save an 
image for that radio it's all about the real radio. The implications are 
this: if you save an image of a clone, when you open it in Chirp _it 
will show itself as the real radio, not the clon__e_.

So my recommendation is that you NAME the image file like your radio 
vendor/model; this way you will get get a "tip from the past" when 
months in the future you hit with this odd behavior.

PS: I will update the supported radio page of the wiki later to show this.
