Here we attempt to list most of the Xastir developers and contributors who have devoted large amounts of time to making Xastir one of the best APRS(tm) clients ever. Unfortunately we can't devote much time to keeping this list current or adding new contributors.
Xastir was originally written by Frank Giannandrea, KC2GJS (was KC0DGE).

SmartBeaconing(tm) was invented by Tony Arnerich (KD7TA) and Steve Bragg (KA9MVA) for the HamHUD project. They offer the algorithm to other authors as long as proper credit is given and the term SmartBeaconing(tm) is used to describe it. So be it. Thanks Tony and Steve!
Thanks go to all the people who have made individual contributions to the Xastir project by sending bug-reports, patches, or who have otherwise supported the project. There are too many to list. If you'd like to help, a good place to start is the HowTo:Contributing page.
