What's New in V2.341 - released 07 February 2008

Post by Keith Wilson »

What's New in V2.341

Event Names Editor, Merge Two People, Family Dialog, Sources Dialog and Context Diagram

Minor corrections to avoid the possibility of a very occasional error when deleting a Person, Event or Source.

Disconnect Person

Enhanced the recording of Undo action names in the undo manager to make undo more informative.

Main Menu

Added a main menu option called File -> Save. It simply explains that a manual save is not required because iFamily automatically does a save very frequently - nearly every time you make a change. All database saves are done in background so that the user does not notice them being done.

Sources Add/Edit Dialog and Source Search Dialog

Reduced the initial size of the Sources Add/Edit and Search dialogs to always fit correctly on a 1024 x 768 screen, with the Dock unhidden and full size.

Spurious Messages in the System Log File

Stopped iFamily (under Leopard) from reporting spurious Core-Graphics "errors" to the System Log file. iFamily already detected the error and made an appropriate correction. The error messages in the system.log file were unnecessary.

Project Views Add/Edit Dialog

Reduced the initial size of the Project Views Add/Edit dialog.

Ancestors and Descendants Diagrams

Where no marriage event has been entered the spouse is now prefixed with + in lieu of m

Gedcom Export

Added a user preference to indent or not indent the lines in the Gedcom file.
Enhanced to sort FAMS records within an INDI record by marriage date.

Context Diagram

Corrected an error that may (very occasionally) cause a minor problem when displaying the Context Diagram.

Event Places Editor

Added buttons for "Refresh" and "Move Place Name to Notes" - to assist editing after import of "Facts" from an FTM Gedcom file.

Memory Management

Tuned various functions to reduce the memory usage and increase speed of response on both Tiger and Leopard.
The improvements from this tuning are modest and will only be noticed on large databases with more than 20,000 people.
However, please also refer to FAQ for Will iFamily for Tiger Run Faster on Leopard?

Google Maps Save Panel

The options for saving the Event geocodes and the People's map images are now saved as user preferences. They previously defaulted to the first option each time the Google Maps Save dialog was invoked.

Added option to not save any map images.

Version 2.341 was released on 7 February 2008
