Latest version WSJT-X 1.8.0-rc2 fixed my "Hamlib error" problem

Today WSJT-X 1.8.0-rc2 has been released at

I downloaded this version (.deb file for Linux Mint) and installed it. This fixed the
"Hamlib error: Communication timed out while getting current VFO" which I had in combination with my FT-747GX.
As I found other users having the same problem with quite newer rigs, I would recommend to give WSJT-X 1.8.0-rc2 a try ...

The only problem I recognized: the frequency list disappeared. So I installed the previous version 1.8.0-rc1 (released in July) again, saved the frequency list (Settings/Frequencies right mouse click, "save as" .grg file) and loaded it in the new WSJT-X 1.8.0-rc2 version again.
