Gramps 3.2.3 (“I used to eat there. Really good noodles.”) released.

The Gramps Developers released version 3.2.3 on Sunday May 16 2010.  Highlights from the NEWS file are:

  • Bug fixes:
    • several GLADE fixes
    • several GEDCOM fixes (both export and import)
    • several crash fixes
    • encoding fix (Windows only)
    • privacy/living fixes
    • updates to NarrativeWeb and the css stylsheets

This is our first release that followed the new “code freeze” style we adopted last month.  It can be downloaded from our usual SourceForge portal:

    Gramps is getting better and better!
    Nevertheless, after migration from version 3.1.3 to 3.2.3 I am not completely happy.

    One of the strong points of Gramps has always been its website generation: I don’t know any programme that produces a website that can touch the website that Gramps creates.

    Unfortunately, it’s not all joy and happiness when migrating to 3.2.3 (or maybe I must say 3.2). The fact that not all fields of the database are used in the creation of the website is not a big problem – you can adapt to that by entering the data you want to show up on the website into other fields. Now, there has been a change in what data is included and what not, and that is very annoying, to the level that I will stick to version 3.1.3 until the fields that used to be included on the website will come back, in spite of all other improvements.

    Notably, this concerns comments added to marriages. We have used this extensively, but now the data does not appear on the website anymore. 🙁

    Once a decision has been made to include certain database fields in the website, one should not revert that, since people count on it! Changing a large database is not an option.

    I have been trying to find a way to say “thank you” for an amazing piece of software for a while now. Since I discovered GRAMPS in 2008 I have put together my family tree ranging back into the 1600s and was very glad to have such a versatile tool to do this with. GRAMPS has proved invaluable, and having looked at some commercial alternatives, I believe it is an excellent piece of software.

    My mum had worked on the family tree extensively, but it is all on paper, and very difficult to follow and/or find. Now, thanks to your work, it is almost completely computerized and neatly sorted.

  • Seamus

    Firstly – thanks for a great, simple, intuitive piece of software. I am thoroughly enjoying it.

    I do not know whether this is the correct place to submit questions. Please let me know if it is not. I am sure I will have more in future 🙂

    Date Sort
    I have two events, one dated “17 Jan 1950” and the other dated “AFT 17 Jan 1950”. The events do not sequence correctly in date ascending order. Is there a switch I can modify to correct this? Is this something that can be considered for correction at a later date?

  • Jason Simanek

    @Seamus: You should join the gramps-users mailing list and post your question there. There’s information about that on the Contact page available at the top of this site.

  • James Pannozzi

    Any chance that Gramps would ever have the ability to import Family Tree Maker (.ftw) files?

    I have all my information in Family Tree Maker 2005. I won’t upgrade since they withdrew their Linux viersion and I don’t use windows.

    But I continue to use it, (in wine of course) because I don’t want to re-enter all that information, pictures, etc., by hand. Surely someone can figure out their proprietary format?

  • Benny

    I can only point to Import_from_another_programr. Perhaps some users on the mailing list can offer more insight.

  • João

    Someone can tell me please what is the limit of persons we can register?

    Tks a lot.
    Best Regards
