[USRP-users] UBX synchronization

Hi all,

The changelog of UD 3.8.3 mentions this:
* UBX: Fixed phase synchronization issues 	(Related changes: Change X300
daughterboard frequency, increase 	N210 FIFO depth)

Does it mean that phase synchronization of multiple UBX daughter-boards
is officially supported since that version?

Best Regards,
Piotr Krysik
