GEDitCOM II 1.0a3 has been released.

GEDitCOM II is a rewritten version of GEDitCOM using Apple’s Cocoa environment.


• It is a Universal Binary application.
• All text editing allows Unicode for any language’s characters.
• Greatly improved index window.
• Create albums of records.
• Improved handling of multimedia objects.
• Lots of drag and drop options.
• Infinite undo.
• More interface options (such as scroll wheel support).
• Multiple files open at the same time.
• New features for fixing corrupt records.
• Simplified help information.
• Improved template language for those writing templates to format data. Template editing is now down in a separate application called GEDitCOM Editor.

Some things yet to be implemented are:

• Searching a file.
• Exporting a file to a new format (such as a web site).
• Printing features (some simple ones are in place).
• Marking of records (but using albums can replace marking of records with more options).
