Please reset the visible modes of the Modes dropdown in BV Configuration > Modes.
One note to modes such as PSK and its many submodes. BV used to have PSK31 as mode which is now changed to PSK. PSK31 can still be printed but it cannot be chosen anymore from the Mode dropdown list. PSK31 and all its submodes such as FSK31, PSK10, PSK63, PSK63F, PSK125, PSK250, PSK500, PSK1000, PSKAM10, PSKAM31, PSKAM50, PSKFEC31, QPSK31, QPSK63, QPSK125, QPSK250, QPSK500, SIM31 are now imported as PSK and the submode respectively as submode in BV.
To change PSK31 into mode PSK and submode PSK31 in your existing old BV logs, export the log as ADIF and reimport it overwriting your existing BV log.
One more note to JT65A. JT65A is imported as JT65 and submode JT65A. There is no JT65A mode, it's just a submode of JT65.

BV 7.8 - Jan 2, 2010
All imported QSOs after Jan 1, 2010 are imported with a wrong date. 2010 was imported as 2000. This applies to all imports.This means all BV7 versions prior to 7.8 will not work anymore and you need to update to BV 7.8!
New modes added: JT65, OLIVIA, WSPR
BV 7.7 - Apr 26, 2009
The Print Queue can now be exported as ADIF file, for example for GlobalQSL or LoTW. See "Export Print Queue to ADIF File" in the File menu or the new "Save" button in the toolbar (shortcut Ctrl+S).
The exported ADIF file can be overwritten or appended. This means "print jobs" can be repeated as often as needed, the new Print Queue entries can be appended to an existing ADIF export file.
BV exports call, date, time, band, mode, RST sent/rcvd, QSL sent/rcvd and - if available - QSO comment and QSL Manager.
