    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.
