Trying to get the next release out - Sun, 18 Apr 2010

I’ve wanted to release this beta version for some time now. It’s been over 2 months and that’s too long between betas. This version is so much better than the previous in many ways: No memory leaks, logfile (not everything in it yet but its mostly there) and separation of program loading from just reorganizing.

Also there’s the latest addition: elimination of the “Incorrectly Linked Families” section with a simple message in the log file instead that now correctly identifies the people who have themself as their own ancestor and listing every person in the chain. I am really excited about that last improvement. It is finally something useful that can be used to identify and fix incorrectly linked people in your GEDCOM.”The Incorrectly Linked Families” was supposed to do this, but it didn’t cut the mustard as it was too difficult to follow the chain from that.

But I’ve got a list of about 10 bugs that I created during the course of these changes. I’m working through them and will release this version as soon as those are fixed. I really don’t want to issue a release that introduces new problems if I already know about them and can fix them first.

So just a few more days …
