JS8Call integration log JS8

Hello Conceptors and all OM,

As I using the new digimode JS8Call, I would like to know if Cqrlog plan on this mode addition ?

At the moment Adif don't yet reconize the JS8, probably because it's still in pre-release at this moment.
This mode seems growing up slowly but surely and at this time as I can't use Data (not find in the mode list) I don't know the right way to declare the contact I've established.
So as it starts as FT8Call and as I've began to log with "FT8" I will be interested if a kind of automatic log integration would have been possible in the nearest future like in JT9, JT65, FT8.
The QSO could be from 2mn till 50mn in my case, and it seems there is not really "start key" and "final keys" as we can find in FT8 with CQ & 73 and I had them manually.

So regarding the other OM habits, how do you log your JS8 QSO's when Data Mode is not avaliable ?
How do you proceed to digitally record your JS8 QSO's ?
I deeply apologize if such question already exist or if I'm in wrong forum's section, I'm really curious to learn more about this point.

Enjoy all your day/evening !

Hi.
You can set "user digital modes" (comma separated) from preferences. Then you can manually record your qsos with right mode.
Jsi udp api seems now to be jsonrpc but they warn that it might change to http or xmlrpc. So there is no mind to develop interface for it until it is sure that they will keep it without change.
My opinion is that they should either use similar xmlrpc format as fldigi, or similar udp messaging that wsjtx uses. That way the interface would be ready in cqrlog ( and also other loggers that now support fldigi or wsjtx).

Untill that either manual logging or importing js8 adif files is the way.
