Probably an updated TQSL configuration file.

You can get that by logging into the LOTW web site, then go to "Your Account",
then "Your Certificates".  There is a link where you can download the latest
TQSL configuration file (last updated on 3 March) along with your certificates
from the web site.  The configuration file has - among many other things - the
list of satellites acceptable for LOTW, and log formats for those
using Cabrillo-
formatted contest logs instead of ADIF files for LOTW.

Once you download the updated configuration file to your computer, you should
only have to click on the file to launch TQSL and update your program.  After
that, you should be in good shape.
