Since version 3, MacFamilyTree has been developed by the Synium Software GmbH. Now, with version 5, we completely acquire the project in its entirety from OnlyMac Software, including development, distribution and support. Our long-standing experience within the Mac software market and especially with MacFamilyTree makes for a solid foundation in delivering reliable feature updates, continued support, quick bug-fixes and a true long-term perspective for your favorite genealogy tool.
The same web site also has announced a major new release: version 5. While not yet available, the web site describes the new version as:
MacFamilyTree 5 is the most advanced genealogy software for the Mac.
The fifth release offers an entirely new GUI — a highly modern, graphical user interface that is individually configurable to your needs.
By the use of Apple's revolutionary Core Data technology it is possible to easily sift through huge databases. These may consist of information about tens of thousands of individuals, including digitized photographic images, sound files and movies.
To achieve this, MacFamilyTree 5 has been completely rewritten with the use of the most recent development technique.
In the upcoming weeks we will offer a prerelease of MacFamilyTree 5 for you to download and experiment with the many new features of this entirely redesigned and rewritten version of your favorite genealogy tool.
