I haven't seen this program yet although it does sound interesting. Wintree and GWintree reportedly are GEDCOM-based genealogy programs. They provide facilities to record, view, edit, and merge genealogy data, and to produce genealogy charts, family trees, and reports in a range of formats, including HTML. Charts can show all relatives, ancestors only, or descendants only. HTML charts allow you to click on a person in your HTML report to see where they are on the chart. Automatic matching and merging of genealogy data between files is supported.
Wintree is for Windows and is supported at http://www.wintree.plus.com/
