GRAMPS (the Genealogical Research And Management Programming System) is a powerful but free genealogy program for Linux and UNIX. It has a rather loyal following. I reviewed GRAMPS in the March 15, 2005 edition of this newsletter (available here) and then wrote a follow-up when GRAMPS 2.0.0 was released (available here). Now version 2.0.7 has just been released.
Version 2.0.7 includes:
- Addition of a spelling checker if python-gnome-extras is installed
- Thumbnails are generated for objects other than images if an appropriate thumbnailer is found in the GCONF database.
- Enhances Descendant Chart report that allows better control over the formatting of the report
- Added support for new %n format in addition to $n, which will cause the line to be removed if a text match is not made.
- Numerous bug fixes
