Release Notes

Family Lines 0.1 is primarily a tweak and bugfix release based on the Family.Show V4.0 codebase. If you have built the code from the last Family.Show patch (id 11894) then you will not see too many changes here. There have been additional bug fixes, and a couple of added features. An installer is now included in the solution, and we'll be moving forward with this code as a base.


Family Lines V0.1 Changes vs Family.Show V4.0:

  • Installer
  • Fix for the inability to import dates of the form "January 1, 2001"
  • Add Prefix: GED import, export; display. Correctly import/export the 'suffix' value from/to the GED suffix tag.
  • Added Tree #. This is calculated on Load and when relationships are changed. The value is displayed in the "Family List" and "Family data" grids.
  • The "Family List" has been replaced by a datagrid. This allows sorting on multiple columns (SHIFT+Click on column header).
  • The "Family List" now shows "First" and "Last" columns instead of just "Name". This allows sorting by last, first. The default sort is now Last then First.
  • Fixed issues with the "Connect Family Member" display
    • filter was broken
    • interaction of filters between this list and the "family list"
    • issues fixed without breaking performance
  • Fixed issues when importing NOTEs from GED:
    • CONC and CONT tags handled incorrectly
    • removed doubled blank lines
    • fixed note-id issues.
  • Fix the silent failure to open .familyx files from "My Family Tree".
  • Fix issues with the themes where radio buttons and checkboxes were not visible.
  • Fix problems with the Windows 7 Taskbar support (tasks were not listed; progress indication didn't work). Removed WindowsAPICodePack dependency.
  • Added a menu item to allow turning off the "shadows". Useful for printing.
  • Performance Improvements:
    • Informal wallclock timings:
      • Family.Show 4.0:
        • Import GED (5100 people): 125 seconds
        • Import GED (10600 people): 505 seconds
        • Switching between people: 30 seconds
      • Family Lines:
        • Import GED (5100 people): 20 seconds
        • Import GED (10600 people): 30 seconds
        • Switching between people: 5 seconds
  • Patches from the Family.Show project:
    • o Patch 11699: remember last folder when accessing files.
    • o Patch 6244: Improved story save/restore.
    • o Patch 4860: Issue with version parsing in different locales.
    • o Patch 4859: Enter key would not apply changes in "Edit Details".
    • o Patch 4717: Improved German translation.

Some Known Issues:

  • Family List doesn't match themes
  • Family List "too wide" (need a splitter)
  • Cannot edit Prefix in details view
  • Tree # is not updated after Merge, adding new person
  • Exporting to GED does not copy photos/attachments.
  • When switching languages, the language dialog doesn't vanish.
  • After exporting, the main display doesn't refresh properly.
  • The person count in the "Family Data" display is always one too many.
  • Cannot load a "familyx" file from "My Family Tree".
  • Various issues still existing from Family.Show.
