- Previous scripts were revised and new scripts were written to use the new properties and commands. These changes make the scripts run faster (the "Find Disconnected Script" is now much faster).
- Many new scripts were written and are either included in the GEDitCOM II installation or available for download on this web site.
- Two particular scripts make it much easier to share your data as a GEDCOM file with friends including copies of all multimedia objects linked to the exported records. The export is even compressed to a .zip file ready for emailing.
• Replaced the "Copy Special" script with a built-in "Copy Special" menu command. If desired, you can customize tool bars to include a new "Copy Special" icon.
• Merging has been improved:
- Better at merging dates and merging structures with non-conflicting subordinate data (thus less things to fix after merging records)
- When new records are merged into a file, they are added to an album (like iPhoto or iTunes creates a "Last Import" album)
- Select two records in the index window and merge.
- Automated merging of records after merging of files is in the works and will be in a future version (if you can't wait you can use a new scripting command to merge records and write your own script to automate merging of records).
• Several improvements for using iPhoto with GEDitCOM II:
- Will read date whan an image is dragged from iPhoto
- Will recognize changed keywords without needing to restart GEDitCOM II
- Works well with multiple iPhoto libraries so you can create a custom library to hold just your genealogy photos
- Button to add current iPhoto library in the multimedia options panel
• Improvements to user interface formats:
- Added number of children (NCHI) to optional data for family records.
- Fix bug that could fail to display with multiple birth or death events.
- More languages in selected formats
- Localizes names of generic events types when using different languages
• Some minor changes to the GEDCOM decoder were made to make GEDitCOM II even more compatible with other software that does not follow the GEDCOM rules, while still maintaining GEDitCOM II's adherance to the standard.
• Fixed issue where number of records of each type or in an album would disappear after editing the name
• If saved while editing a text field, any recent changes made to that field would not be in that save, but now they are.
• Fixed bug that could crash in MacOS Tiger when restating a tree that is or was in chart mode.
