  • Narrative web fix:
    • some strings not translated
    • The confidence and the date are not translated in the family map page.
    • The date doesn't use the specified date format.
    • Markers incorrectly placed. In the map pages, the markers are not placed where it should be. Reproducible when zoom in/zoom out.
    • Background not correctly set. If you use the Web_Basic-Cypress.css, the foreground and background use the same color, so you see nothing. You must hover the fields to see the text
    • Places list is not sorted depending on the selected language. If you start gramps in english or another language then try to generate a narrative web report in another language, the navigation alphabet is incorrect. This is true for the place list and the person list.
    • OSM forward all http resquest to https.
    • When we are on a mobile phone or a small device, we suppress the navigation tab. In place, we have a new icon on the upper left which is used to show the dropdown menu.
    • For Home, Introduction and Contact, If we have an image and this image contains regions, show the regions. We can go directly to the person page associated to this region. If we click on the image, we go directly to the associated media page. This will be true only if we selected "include images and media objects" and "create and only use thumbnail" is unselected
    • The first line identifying a family will be more legible. The link is not useful in the parents and pedigree section for the current person.

    • Add compact Ancestry trees using Buchheim/Walker algorithm This enhancement adds a new 'compact' field to the Narrated Web Report. A compact tree is one that is not a simple binary layout but uses the algorithm of Buchheim/Walker to create a layout that is sensible but also compact. Creating a compact layout is slower than a simple binary tree but the results are significantly improved and do not leave large areas of whitespace where there are no nodes to be shown.
    • Make relationships optional in narrative web
    • Option to have Places and Sources pages
    • Narrative should come first right after the name, gender and parent information in individual page
    • References section at the bottom of each place with people related to this place have birth year behind it in parenthesis

  • filters rule have children person filter: Check all families of a person for children and not only the first

    • enable Graphviz node port selection, optionable. This enables the headport and tailport attributes for all edges in the Graphviz file. The default (off) value makes the arrows between persons and/or family nodes attach their ends to the respective node at any position. When this option is selected, the position facing the node on the other side of the arrow is always chosen.
    • Fix graphs on Windows for font selection not working
  • relationship graph:
    • Allow an option to not use hexagons for those of unknown gender
    • Father and Mother are connected by an invisible line.

 Gramps 4.0.0 (The "The Miracle of Birth" new major release) released.

Version 4.0.0, the "The Miracle of Birth", has been released. This is a major release, don't upgrade before verifying your system can run it.

As one of the very first big (>386,000 loc estimates at 100 man-years or $5.4 million by OpenHub using the COCOMO model), multi-platform (Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, ...), non-Gnome GTK applications, Gramps makes the jump to GTK 3. At the same time python 2.7 and python 3 are supported, though the last must still be considered experimental. Gramps 4.0 further uses distutils for distribution, so the install sequence is changed.

The Gramps developers have tried to make Gramps 4.0 as identical as possible to 3.4, so no data changes are done, nor are there big interface changes. In other words, a .gramps backup file of version 4.0 will open without problems in Gramps 3.4, giving users the possibility to fully try Gramps 4.0.

Don't be mistaken though, a huge amount of code is new and changed! In order to bring this release we thank the many developers who helped the GTK support on Mac, Windows and Linux forward. Note however, Gramps 4.0 will only work on a top of a very recent sortware stack. A Windows installer will probably not be available soon. In Linux current distro's don't contain the optional packages in the form Gramps 4.0 needs. All this should make clear you can safely keep using version 3.4 and wait for packagers to catch up. People who cannot upgrade the required components but want to use Gramps 4.0 should use it in Virtualbox.

Before Upgrade

Before you upgrade, make sure your family tree data is secure. The best way to do this is:

  1. Start Gramps 3.4
  2. Open your family tree
  3. Export the family tree to the gramps xml format or the gramps xml package format (which includes your photographs and other media files associated with your family tree data). Export your tree via menu Family Trees->Backup....
  4. Close this family tree and repeat the above steps for any other family trees you have
  5. Keep the resulting file(s) in a safe place

Overview of big changes

  • Conversion to GTK 3 and use of gobject introspection, GEPS 029
  • Support for python 3, GEPS 031
  • Code reorganization, GEPS 008
  • Autotools is no longer used for building Gramps, distutils is used, GEPS 026
  • Completely reworked localization handling

Overview of visible changes

See screenshots.

  • The Gramplet view has been renamed Dashboard. This to avoid an overload of the word Gramplet, and to make it more clear to new users what can be expected in this view
  • GTK 3 uses new themes, so users not on Gnome must set a nice GTK 3 theme to fully appreciate Gramps 4.0. Install a GTK 3 theme and set it. If Gramps looks ugly, you made an error in this step.
  • Different sidebar navigators can be installed
  • New Ancestor Fan Chart View and Descendant Fan Chart View, which offer a lot of insight in your family tree on a small space. Direct printing is available from these views.
  • All wizards are reworked, so the exporter dialog, help and bug report dialog are different from version 3.4, but offer the same functions
  • New To Do Gramplets listing all To Do Notes
  • More reports support output in a different language than the interface language
  • Narrative Web has been reworked to make it more stable.

Installation status

  1. OS X: Mac OS X will see an official installer shortly after release with all components
  2. Linux: We expect Linux packages for different distributions. Gramps 4.0 will only work on distributions released since October 2012, use virtualbox for older distributions. Some optional dependencies are not available yet on most distribution at the time of release. If you want those, you need to install them from source, see Ubuntu derivatives walkthrough in the installation guide for these. Specifically for Ubuntu derivatives spell checking, geography view and exiv image data require installation of source components.
  3. Windows: Much work has been done the last months to obtain the stack needed for Gramps on Windows. At the moment only a rough guide on source installation is present. We hope this will allow windows developers to construct an AIO installer as for the 3.4 version

See the Changelog for more details.

 Gramps 3.4.4 (The "The Ministry of Silly Names" bug fix) released.

In order to fix some bugs introduced in 3.4.3 and to prepare for the imminent release of version 4.0.0, the Gramps team releases version 3.4.4.

We advise everybody on 3.x versions to upgrade to this latest and most stable of Gramps versions.

For all users on Linux versions older than October 2012, the 3.4 releases will be the last versions of Gramps that can be easily installed. Therefore, bug fixes will continue for the 3.4 series for at least another year.

Most important changes:

  • 6515 infinite recursion bug in narrative web generation
  • protection on family trees when using version 3.4 and 4.0 on the same PC (road to 4.0)
  • merging notes of media with citations now works
  • 6493: crash during Calculate Preview of a filtered XML export
  • fix annoying errors on navigation related to citations gramplet and tag object.
  • 6483: listing the Family Trees can corrupt them.

Other changes are:

  • various fix around handling Gedcom file format
  • fix citations and sources import on ProGen format
  • better date handling and better alternate translation support on some textual reports according to locale under windows
  • avoid Errors when setting wrong value as markup for invalid dates (Preferences)
  • fix paragraph layout on PDF format or print output
  • New: New-Zealand holidays
  • Polish and backport code on XML import (road to 4.0)
  • Regular expression rules now use search rather than match, fix design issues on regex filter rules
  • Disable/Enable indent spouse on descendants tree
  • fix regular expressions on Place filter rule
  • consistency on cli arguments (road to 4.0)
  • fix call of non-existant process on references proxy, enhanced tests on proxy filter
  • fix NarWeb creation via cli for some non-english locales
  • Various updated translations: ca, de, fr, it, nl, pt_BR, ru, sv, uk

See the Changelog for more details.

 Gramps 4.0.0 Beta released.

One month after Gramps 4.0.0 alpha5, the Gramps Developers have released:

The first Gramps 4.0.0 beta release. This is a preview, so use for testing!"

It is recommended to use Gramps 4.0.0 with python 3.2 so as to be ready for the future (python 2.7 works though).

The dependencies for Gramps 4.0.0 are completely different than 3.4 due to the switch to GObject introspection, and the removal of autotools. So only install 4.0.0 if you are certain you can obtain the dependencies, see README and INSTALL.

Major enhancements in Gramps 4.0.0:

More info in the manual

Everybody is invited to update the manual to make it current!

 Gramps 3.4.3 (The "Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown" bug fix release) released.

The Gramps Developers have released:

Version 3.4.3 of Gramps! "'Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown'", a maintenance release.

The main changes are:

  • Sorting of names, places etc. uses the International Components for Unicode (ICU) libraries which resolves many bugs particularly on MS Windows, and ensures that sorting is the same for all platforms.
  • Addon checking and download works again.
  • A large number of fixes to Narrative Web. In particular, media objects attached to events and sources are now output.
  • Many other bug fixes.

Detailed changes are as follows (numbers in brackets refer to bug numbers):

  • Sorting (both in the main display window, and particularly in Narrative Web output) now uses ICU/PyICU (if that module is available). Inclusion of PyICU is 'strongly recommended'. This resolves a number of bugs particularly related to sorting of non-Latin characters, and sorting on MS Windows and Mac OS X. Some changes have been made in Narrative Web to support contractions for alphabetic indices (2933 3434 3933 4423 5088 5645 5767)
  • The automatic Addon checking and download now works once again (the location used in Gramps 3.4.2 and before had been changed, so the the automatic process was no longer working)
  • Import from Pro-Gen has been updated (at last) to take account of the change to Citations (in 3.4.0) (6195)
  • Import and Export of address fields in GEDCOM has been improved so that the round-trip works properly (6382)
  • GEDCOM Repositories not imported correctly from FTM for Windows and Heredis (6507)
  • Fixes to a number of errors in filtering notes (5058)
  • Fix some errors in determining whether someone is alive (e.g. for filtering out alive people) (4719)
  • Make availability of GraphViz settings depend on output format
  • Improve the descriptions and tooltip for GraphViz aspect ratio option
  • Fixed update problems with citation bottombar gramplet (6336)
  • Fixed Open Document Text output in Book report (6457)
  • fails to load (6514)
  • change the lock strategy and split transactions in Merge citation (06459)
  • Crash when attempting to use Book Report (6247, 6229)
  • A number of changes to Narrative Web:
    • Fix Media objects attached to Marriage events and Sources are not included in Narrative Web Site (6009)
    • restructure the families index so families are indexed under both spouses, and the family name is normalised
    • separate out Families section in individual and families pages so individual page links to the family page and family page links to both people
    • normalise links to families so the link is only displayed if the family page is present, and the gid is included when appropriate
    • remove highlighting of media subregions except in the media pages (it was confusing and not very well implemented)
    • include people whose surname is absent in the individual, surname and families indexes
    • html_escape names and surnames
    • always display media thumbnails for first image in Gallery list (in some cases they were suppressed if they had been displayed at the top of the page)
    • change partner and parent columns in families index to improve the layout of the HTML and put the comma between multiple partners in the right place
    • use event description (where present) instead of just event type in back references
    • fix bug in the way obj_dict and bkref_dict were initialised
    • fix missing document.png for missing media
    • fixed problems that bibliography ignores media attached to citations, so if that is the only 'interesting' thing about the citation, the citation media is not output
    • Replaced person link routine with one that takes into account whether there is a page for the person
    • Included repository reference media type and call number in the 'Repositories' section of the relevant source instead of the Repository page
    • Implemented a generalised back reference function to display the 'References' section of all pages. This recursively displays references till one is found for which a page exists
    • Removed list of people and families from heading of the event pages as these are now in the 'References' section
    • Fixed Narrated Web Site not copying Source Citations files such as jpg or pdf docs to web site (5968)
    • Fixed GRAMPS failed to insert jpeg image into proper place for an event" by displaying a thumbnail for citation media in the 'Source References' section (with a link to the media page) (5946)
    • Tidy up media pages - remove unused parameters, use list of media items generated in first pass (2365, 5905 and 6009)
    • Tidy up sources pages - fix numbering of repositories, remove unused parameters, fix title of individual source pages
    • Reset NarrWeb navigation menu layout when style sheet doesn't support it
    • Change Source Pages to use the list of sources generated by the first pass that finds objects to be output, and simplify references section on the Source page to use the references passed to it
    • Fix option to suppress Gramps ID (6237)
  • a number of technical changes to Narrative Web
    • Removed a lot of redundant code and parameters (mainly connected with the old way of determining the objects to be included in the report).
    • Movement of some large chunks of code within the source file and some initial work towards GEPS 022: Narrative Website Refactor. Functionality should be unchanged.
    • Moved routines for calculating objects to be output so they can be part of default list building classes
  • Various updated translations: da, de, es, fr, it, nb, nl, pt_BR, pt_PT, sv, uk
