Looks like it just dropped today.... I grabbed it from anytone.de

D878UV firmware update V1.24 (dated 2021-05-26)
Change List
1. CPS->Optional setting ->Display->Date Display Format, allows the user set the date format on display.
2. CPS->Optional setting ->Display->Display Channel type, allows the user turn off the channel type on
display
3. CPS->Optional setting ->Display->Display time slot, allows the user turn off the time slot on display
4. CPS->Optional setting ->Display->Display color code, allows the user turn off the color code on display
5. CPS-> Optional setting ->Alert Tone, add Ana idle channel tone, the digital channel and analog channel
have separated idle channel tone setting.
6. CPS->Channel -> Auto scan, tick on the box will allow the radio start scan automatically.
7. CPS-> Optional setting ->Volume/Audio, separate mic gain setting for digital channel and analog channel
8. CPS-> APRS ->Ana AprsTX, allows to set wide band or narrow band for analog APRS transmit.
9. Add the alert tone setting in radio menu.
10. CPS->Analog -> 2Tone Setting-> Auto Reset Time changes to maximum 250S. If you set Auto Reset
Time to 25s, it keeps the squelch on carrier until there is 25 secs of silence, then it switches back to waiting for
tones. If there is a transmission before the end of that 25 secs, the timer restarts. It is useful for the 2Tone
Paging System.

12. CPS->Analog -> DTMF-> Auto Reset Time changes to maximum 250S
13. Digital APRS add Coarse and Speed information.

zone number.

The separate mic gain settings for analog/digital are a good idea. I wish AGC worked properly; it doesn't seem to do anything and lacks dynamic range. At least they're progressively releasing new options/enhancements which have a meaningful purpose. The same can't be said for Motorola's products.

The one feature I've been holding out for (but doubt we'll ever see it) is ARC4, 40-bit encryption. That would be very useful in terms of compatibility with some Motorola IPSC systems and even (RX-only) Cap+ systems.

They released the 'N' revision due to some bugs in 1.24:

Change List
1. Correct the issue that FM radio is unable to off in menu.
2. Correct the issue that CPS->APRS -> APRS set APRS auto TX intervals(s) doesn’t match to radio setting.
