@MarsSeed JFYI, the is an unofficial fork with somewhat questionable changes (among with the good new features). Unfortunately, they never cooperated with the upstream (Osmocom), which was recently brought up in their bug tracker (

The upstream recently merged some new patches and tagged v2.0.1. IMO, it's better to stick with the upstream (Osmocom) rather than using random forks (GitHub) merging whatever they like and tagging new versions... That being said, I don't want to offend anyone or diminish their work. My concern is mainly about picking the authoritative source.

BTW, I just stumbled upon, which is reverting back to the upstream's (Osmocom) v2.0.1. Now let's wait for the fork to tag v3.x.x ;)

Actually, please kindly use the same source as extra/rtl-sdr:

EDIT: this comment is no longer relevant, as the original Osmocom/rtl-sdr project became active again, and Arch repo's rtl-sdr* also got switched back to using that source.

Also source URL has changed; please kindly switch to it:

No, this version is the latest git master version. rtl-sdr from community is a fixed commit (presumably at a stable release).
