At the top of the SI5351 data sheet it touts “Glitchless Frequency Changes” although I didn’t find anything further expanding on this.  I assume that means phase continuous frequency changes.

Not obvious from reading the si5351 docs, so worth mentioning here:
I've found that writes to the multiple registers involved in the output multisynth are buffered,
only take affect only the last register is written to.  If the frequency is changed between calls
to si5351bx_setfreq() by just a few hz,  the transitions are very smooth, sounds
like an analog vfo sweeping through when heard on a receiver.  Surprising, and very nice.

I'd expect the same sort of thing when writing to the PLL multisynth dividers,
though have not checked.
