Hello group,

A while back, I built some new blocks for testing a system of ours using
mostly the GMSK code out of version 2.8.  If I were to upgrade to
version 3.0.4 would I encounter problems using the blocks compiled and
used with 2.8?  The reason I ask this question is I want to be up to
date with the GNU Radio, but don't want to ruin any work I have done in
the previous version.

Also aside from bug-fixes, could anyone tell me (in short) the major
difference between GnuRadio 2.8 and 3.0?

Thanks in advance,

find the port straight-forward.  Most likely just some
