If you are upgrading from a previous version, you must carry out the upgrade process. If you do not have a backup, the Gramps developers cannot be responsible for any data loss

Official support Only the source code on the Linux platform is officially released and supported as Gramps developers use and test the source code on that platform, fixing any problems that arise due to upgrades. The source release is intended for building from source by packagers and developers. This page describes the Linux packages, MS Windows installers and Mac OS X bundles that have been provided by 'community support' for download and installation by users.

The latest released version is Gramps 4.1.3. This version may not yet be available for installation on your platform.

See list of Gramps package versions for various Linux distributions, but these are RMP or DEB packages.

Gnome and KDE You can use both, but Gramps fits in better with GNOME. For KDE there are some minor issues due to some (GTK) issues outside of Gramps. Check the KDE page to know what these problems might be. For GNOME, there are some issues due to some (ATK/GAIL) issues outside of Gramps. Check the Known issues to know what these problems might be. Also, you might look at XdgUtils.

  1. Use your old version of Gramps to backup your Family Tree your Family Trees to GRAMPS XML (you find backup in the Family Tree menu of recent Gramps versions, otherwise use export in the same menu but uncheck privacy options in the Exporter Assistant in order to export all data).

  1. Create a new Family Tree
  2. Import your old Gramps XML data in this Family Tree
