Thanks for the new version of Lady Heather!  I have already downloaded, compiled it and it is running well on my linux box, but I did have one minor problem.
I am running Fedora 24 (have not upgraded my Time/Radio PC to Fedora 25 yet) and followed the readme instruction:

For Fedora Linux edit the makefile and change "OS = g++" to "OS = gpp".

but making this edit did not work for me (could not find gpp).   I had to change it back to g++ and it compiled without errors.

Thanks again for this great program!

>Many thanks to John Miles for hosting the distribution and his work on the Windows installer, PDF documentation file, readme file, and bring an all-around good guy.
>Heather now has some proper user documentation.  Check the heather.pdf file and/or the comments in the first 3500+ lines of the heather.cpp file.  Heather can be compiled for Linux (including the Raspberry Pi) and macOS.  Download the heatherx11.zip file and check the readme.txt file for compilation instructions.
>There are MANY new features in Heather.  One of the main ones is support for many new receiver types.  When Heather is started it defaults to attempting to automatically determine the receiver type.   You can bypass this and force the receiver type using the new "/rx..." command line options.  Some receiver types cannot be auto-detected.  Also many receivers power up speaking NMEA and you can enable their native binary language using the /rx commands.  Native binary mode gives better information and allows controlling the receiver configuration and settings.
>Currently-supported receivers include: 
>Trimble Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt-E
>Acron Zeit WWVB receiver
>UCCM - Trimble / Symmetricom GPSDOs
>NEC GPSDO (STAR-4 compatible)
>GPSD interface
>Jupiter-T (aka Zodiac)
>Lucent KS24361 REF0/Z3811A (19200:8:N:1)
>Motorola binary format
>Generic NMEA receiver
>Trimble Resolution T family with odd parity
>Sirf binary
>Generic Trimble TSIP binary
>Ublox UBX binary
>Venus mixed binary / NMEA
>Nortel SCPI-compatible GPSDOs (NTWB, NTPX, etc.)
>Z3801A and compatible SCPI GPSDOs
>HP 5xxxx-style SCPI
>Oscilloquartz STAR-4 (via the management interface)
>NVS binary
>PC system clock (no receiver)
>After installing Heather, you should edit the heather.cfg file (or the PROPERTIES setting for the desktop icon) for your desired configuration.  Everybody should change the "/tz" option for their time zone... it comes set up for the US central time zone.  International uses should add a "/b..." command to set their daylight savings time information.   On Windows, you can press the "n" key and that will bring up NOTEPAD to edit the file.  For the changes to take effect you will need to re-start Heather (or do a "r heather.cfg" keyboard command).
