Eager for the Beta - Tue, 6 Jan 2009

There’s at least one person out there eager for the beta of Behold. Tamura Jones has posted an entry titled: Behold release disappoints.

Tamura’s been one who very critically reviews genealogy (and other) software. He torture tests them with huge files that tear them apart. Previous alpha versions of Behold have not withstood the wrath of his tests.

But my recent blog comments about the orders-of-magnitude improvement I have added to my development version of Behold have raised Tamura’s interest. I’m hoping to make Behold almost as fast as Genviewer, with the difference that Behold will later become a full genealogical editor, while retaining the speed.

So Tamura downloaded the release from two days ago thinking it had these improvements. It didn’t and he expressed his disappointment.

Don’t worry, Tamura. I’m putting everything into this, and I trying my hardest to ensure you won’t be disappointed.


Meanwhile, something happened at my new webhost a couple of days ago that the PHP Mail function will no longer work from my website. That means that requesting a trial key, sending feedback or trying to register for my blog or forum will give an error page. Not good at all! Same for feedback at gensoftreviews.com and lkessler.com.

I’m got a case in with Netfirms to fix this ASAP and in the meantime, I’m manually emailing keys to everyone who cannot get sent one.

Netfirms has fixed the mail problem. The site should be working perfectly now, and much better than on my previous host.

There are plenty (I am sure) eager for the Beta version, but if they are like me, they would be more interested in the great changes and updates as the product evolves. Keep up the good work, and roll on Delphi 9 speed.
