Dirk B. has announced a new version of Ahnenblatt: 2.98 has come out with multiple bug fixes and some improvements yesterday.

Here's the list of changes:
  • Documents/Images can be copied into common folder while adding to a person
  • Ancestors list can start with arbitrary number
  • Shift from one person to another by keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+arrowkey/0-9)
  • some smaller improvements
  • correction of miscellaneous bugs
Detailed list of changes:
  • Show all files/images: "Go to..." leads to input dialog with slide "Images"
  • Add image/file: picking image information from image file improved via texts in Settings.ini (to be ignored); new image type TIF (GetInfoFromFile)
  • Delete image/file: Request to delete file while in media directory (via DeleteFileWithUndo into trash bin)
  • BUG FIXED: Ancestors' tree by pages: page# was missing in lower line for double page references
  • BUG FIXED: Ancestors' tree by pages: omitted parents with multiple persons
  • BUG FIXED: Ancestors' tree: crossing lines and double children while a man having children with two sisters
  • BUG FIXED: Ancestors' tree: Partners of a home person as brothers or sisters led to a connected line if home person had brothers or sisters as well
  • BUG FIXED: Storing from within the print view (i.e. PDF) provided a wrong file name from the second time on (FileFormatClick/GetExportFileName)
  • BUG FIXED: wrong title in the storage dialog for PDF file for storage from print view (new: SavePages)
  • BUG FIXED: GEDCOM links are correctly handled instead of being doubled while merging
  • BUG FIXED: CSV-Export: Infos about first image of a person were stored twice (OBJE.FILE/OBJE.FILE.1)
  • BUG FIXED: CSV/GEDCOM-Export: improved check for Unicode (IsUnicode), as there were problems with the character "ÿ"
  • BUG FIXED: GEDCOM date converting shortened some expression ("11.xx.1960" => "1960") (added PureDateChars to Text2GedDate)
  • BUG FIXED: GEDCOM: Dates with FROM (i.e. "2 DATE FROM 21 JUL 1926") weren't converted
  • BUG FIXED: Delete group: Coupling of siblings between generations could lead to strange results within "ancestors completely"
  • BUG FIXED: Improved handling of GEDOrgSource, GEDOrgName and GEDOrgVersion - lines became too long after adding multiple GEDCOM files
  • BUG FIXED: in family tree with the style 'larger relationship tree' siblings of first generation were represented multifold
  • BUG FIXED: in family tree, siblings with partners could lead to crossing lines
  • BUG FIXED: sometimes crossing lines when only mother, but no father (SammelRohAhnen)
  • BUG FIXED: after loading() a file GEDCOM- links were shortened to below 22 characters (AllData->CheckLinks)
  • BUG FIXED: Place management: renaming places within the person's entry dialog place names with data do no longer disappear from place list
  • BUG FIXED: Place management: Optimized inserting coordinates from clipboard (validity check, recognition of seconds)
  • BUG FIXED: Place management: Place management could not been reached with first entrys of places after closing person's entry dialog
  • BUG FIXED: Place management: Places with leading square bracket ("[") were sorted in wrong place (different sorting of SLOrte and OrteListBox)
  • BUG FIXED: Place management: Person with multiple identical _UIDs was handled as multiple entries
  • BUG FIXED: Now all duplicate persons are found by integrity check (if option checked)
  • BUG FIXED: ShortenPartnerDistance expanded by check for existing children of partners and persons in between
  • BUG FIXED: Family tree/hourglass - no more further siblings between marriages (from 2nd on)
  • BUG FIXED: Trees: Reducing size of a PDF to 5080mm (height/width) could lead to an empty file while storing
  • BUG FIXED: Trees: sometimes partners with too much distance (CalcXPositions)
  • CSV-Import: improved handling of errors: heads of rows are TRIMmed, HUSB/WIFE corrected when row SEX follows row MARR (load_csv)
  • File / Add: data of author is mixed together, so no more orphaned SUBM records
  • Entry dialog: with multiple annotations/sources: changes are only changed to the person also if GedLinks, empty texts may be deleted
  • Entry dialog: with multiple annotations/sources: partner texts aren't called 'family' any more, but "partnership (partner's name)"
  • Entry dialog: no more sound, when ESC key is used to close dialog
  • Improved recognition of internet files - dot must follow after last slash (IsInternetFile)
  • GEDCOM Export: max lenght of lines reduced to 252 (was 253), for there were problems with PAF (MAXGEDCOMLINE)
  • GEDCOM Import: place management of RootsMagic is now recognized (converted _PLAC to _LOC)
  • GEDCOM Import: mixed slashes (Slash, Backslash) in FILE paths are corrected (GetGEDLineRaw)
  • GEDCOM Import: if NAME.SPFX is found without NAME.SURN (as i.e. in Aldfaer), the part SPFX in SURN is deleted (if present)
  • GEDCOM: comma within given name fields are preserved - therefore new function "Edit / Adjust data... / Remove commas in given names"
  • Found backup file of an automatic backup will be copied as a backup file (.bak) into data directory
  • Navigator: Hint texts to persons without names don't contain a blank line anymore (GetFullHintWideText)
  • Navigator: you can change any person into start person by right click
  • NEW: Ancestors' list: new option to specify start number (ALStartNo, ALStartNoMode)
  • NEW: Ask for copying files/images into common media directory after adding them to a person (store file before if necessary)
  • NEW: Management of places: field "GOV key" with search and supplements (invoking browser)
  • NEW: shortkeys for visually impaireds for navigator: CTRL+Arrows/0-9 to change between partners, parents, children
  • Management of places: Hint if same places are merged
  • Management of places: additional button to delete coordinates
  • Merge persons: dialog now shows vital statistics and children of persons in question
  • Merge persons: optimized recognition of duplicate persons - dates with summarizing word (like "after 1900") don't count to be identical any more (GleichePerson)
  • Merge persons: optimized check for sameness (GleichePerson)
  • Opening of a backup file will be proposed if AB file to be opened is detected as corrupt
