Gramps 4.2.4 released.
Gramps team releases version 4.2.4.
A maintenance release.
- 9322: fixes for the PHON, FAX, EMAIL and WWW Gedcom tags to support Gedcom v5.5.1
- use more relative import
- Support for FTM and others Custom Gedcom Event Tags on import
- 9341: fix '_deeprelationshippath' filter rule
- Narrativeweb: some dates are incorrect in tar archive.
- MacOS: Update graphviz to 2.38 and change to a binary launcher in app bundles.
- 8250: Gramps crashes when closed while exporting

- 9608: remove old debug bloc on place selection.
- Add GUI and CLI config option to allow easy setting
- 9549 Chinese characters are not rendered properly in pdf reports
- Variety of changes to Media support on gedcom, mostly having to do with embedded OBJE tag lines.
- Support v5.5.1 OBJE/FORM/MEDI tag on embedded OBJE
- Change OBJE/BLOB tag from "not understood" to "Recognized but not supported"
- Detect multiple FILEs in a single embedded OBJE >> v5.5.1 feature not supported
- Changed OBJE/FORM/TYPE to internationalize the data (same as SourceMediaType)
- Corrected XREF/OBJE/FORM to correctly save and use its value (was a typo in original code) and to accept any case.
- Added test for missing title on embedded OBJE, and use filename if missing.
- Added test for missing FILE on XREF style OBJE, with warning like the embedded OBJE.
- Support _PRIM tag to handle primary photo for Legacy Family Tree, Ancestral Quest, Family Origins, MyHeritage Family Tree Builder, and others.
- Some of these changes would have required making patches to six different nearly identical pieces of code. So I combined the similar methods and the two functions they called into a single function.
- Added function to check for a subordinate line with a specific tag, and report unexpected lines as not understood. Used that function in OBJE/REFN/TYPE and OBJE/_PRIM processing.
- Test files imp_FTM_PHOTO.ged and imp_MediaTest.ged have been updated to include testing on these changes.
