The following announcement was written by the folks at Atavus, Inc.:
Atavus, Inc. announces that it will be releasing version 1.0 of its advanced, multi-platform genealogy system rootstrust in early February 2016. “Taking on board valuable input from a team of international beta testers over the past twelve months, we have invested another 2000 highly targeted programing hours to refining and improving the program’s functionality. The result is very stable and the import of GEDCOM files from Family Tree Maker, The Master Genealogist, and other programs can be achieved with relative ease and speed,” explains Brooke Nelson, founder of Atavus, Inc. and developer of rootstrust. “Formal release is scheduled in Salt Lake City at Rootstech 2016. Please visit us at our booth.”
rootstrust is a software system designed to manage genealogy data. It is one of the few genealogy programs that can be operated on the Windows, MacOS, and Linux operating systems. It is written in Java and the same program runs on all three operating systems. The database is also independent of the operating system, enabling users to access and preserve genealogy data regardless of the computer they may be working on. The database can be synced with the Cloud.
rootstrust can be downloaded onto Windows, Mac, or Linux PCs or it can be run on a specially formatted USB device to enable full portability of the program and database across computers and operating environments.
