GRAMPS freezes and crashes with ATK / GNOME Assistive Technologies enabled

There have been multiple reports of long freezes and crashes of GRAMPS when refreshing the people view, e.g. after editing a person or changing the Name Display Format. They are related to the use of GNOME Assistive Technologies (ATK/GAIL). If you experience similar problems try going into System -> Preferences -> Assistive Technologies, unchecking "Enable assistive technologies" and logging out and in again.

GRAMPS cannot import media with non-ASCII characters on filename

If Python returns a codec/UTF8 warning and this file was pasted from an external support (CD, HD, USB key), maybe filename has been corrupted ! It seems correct on screen but not on command line. Your OS was not able to properly set the encoding used on your external support.

Make a copy of your file from your disk to your disk.

If the accentued characters will be a "?", then fix the filename by setting the correct character. Now you will be able to import this file into Gramps !

GRAMPS cannot set date greater than 21

Gramps-3.0.4 under Jaunty 9.04 cannot uses date editor or media reference editor. Upgrading to 3.1.2 fixes this issues.
