    Thanks to everyone working on Gramps!

    I have tried to download the new release but couldn’t find how to proceed ounce the zipped file is downloaded.

    Could someone tell me what folder I should click in order to start the install process?

    Hi, note that the homepage does not show 4.2.6 version yet, only refers to 4.2.5. And on github there’s no windows download availablem for 4.2.6 yet either.

    Hi there. Any idea when the new 4.2.6 binary will be released for Windows 64-bit? I am itching to try out the new version of gramps.

    I am quite new to this web site, I am seriously start thinking about
    finding out about my family history.

    I was thinking about giving a form to fill out to my relatives,
    and after to put everything in gramps.

    However, on gramps I cannot find a Geanology Form to print out

    I am looking for a form with all information that I will be able to gather
    and put inside of the gramps.

    If somebody can share such a form with me, I will be really appreciated.

    Thank you
