wsprd upgrade

Regardless of what OS or computer type you run, you should consider updating your wsprd executable to 2.5.x. As of that revision, a memory leak is fixed.

How does someone upgrade wspr to V2.5?

I don't think WD 2.10k users suffer from that memory leak, perhaps because it uses the file in/out interface to wsprd.  There are sites running WD untouched on a 1GB Pi4 for years without OS memory problems.
But In WD 3.0 I load the latest 2.5.x wsprd, so installing 3.0 when it becomes available will upgrade your WD site automaticlly

In the meantime I figured out to change the version wsprdaemon.sh asks for from 2.3.0 to 2.5.4. Seems to be running the new version fine now.
