At Last! Finally! All 1.1 changes appear done! - Sun, 17 May 2015

This has taken way too long and so much longer than I ever expected. It’s now almost two years since the last release of Behold (version And it was earlier than that when I started developing my concept of Life Events as I first described in my Endless Possibilities post over 3 years ago.

But I’ve finally implemented everything necessary for Version 1.1. I’ve tested many of my sample GEDCOMs to ensure it all works properly together, and in so doing had to handle hundreds of special cases – generalizing them wherever possible so that the widest range of possibilities can be handled.

It’s got to work well right off, since this is a production release. I have not encountered any crashes in my test version in a long time. This version of Behold appears to be quite solid and stable, ready to go out.

I’ve marked two more Version 1.1 items as done on the Future Plans page, bringing the total count to about 70 new features, improvements and fixes that are being included in the upcoming version.

There is now just one necessary thing to finish off. It is to update the Behold documentation to bring it in line with the new version. There are enough new features that need to be documented, and the contents of the Everything Report has significant differences that include a lot more useful information to help you with your research. So just about all the screen shots have to be redone.

This is not difficult and is actually rather enjoyable for me to document all the improvements and ensure that the Tutorial, How To’s and Reference Guide provides what’s needed. This is a very important step before the release, because it allows me to go through all Behold’s features methodically as a last check that everything’s working and I haven’t forgotten anything.

I have worked very hard over the past few years to get to this version. I’m excited and proud of what I’m about to release. Behold will provide your information to you in a very useful way that you won’t find anywhere else.

So keep checking my blog for any status updates and then the 1.1 release announcement.

Is it just me, or is the guy at the computer (gif image on Future Plans page) sitting up taller and typing faster?? :)
