==== TMG v6.09 is now available! ====================

The Master Genealogist v6.09.000 is now available. This free
update includes a collection of bug fixes as detailed in:
plus the following new/improved features:

- A new "Message Manager" on the Help menu is designed to
improve communication to/from Wholly Genes. An "Incoming"
message tab will keep you informed by Wholly Genes Software
about important news, developments, critical updates, store
specials, and other announcements. An "Outgoing" tab offers
an easy way to upload a file (screen shot, project, etc.) to
Wholly Genes. It also includes easy links to access the
Wholly Genes web site or send an email to technical support.

- The Message Manager automatically checks for new messages
from Wholly Genes according to a schedule as specified in
File > Preferences > Program Options > Startup and Exit >
Check for Messages. The default is 7 days. You can use that
option to change the interval or turn off automatic checking
for messages by setting the interval to zero.

- Adding Multiple Witnesses - When you select multiple
witnesses using the Expanded Picklist, an optional screen has
been added to confirm your selections. The new option can be
turned off from File > Preferences > Program Options > Lists.

- Validate File Integrity - If 'Search for missing external
exhibits' is selected... 1) Additional lines are added to the
closing VFI messagebox to report the results of the search.
2) The same information is added to the top of the Last VFI.
log (located in the project folder). 3) Any exhibit files not
found are listed in Last VFI.log.

- Help files have been updated.

This free v6.09.000 update requires a previous installation
of v6.00.000 or later. (Users with a prior version must first
apply the update to v6.00.000). To download and apply the
update, run TMG, access the Help menu and choose "Check for
an update." Alternatively, you can choose "Check for a
Program Update" from the Windows Start menu > The Master
Genealogist group. The update will be applied automatically.
Upon restarting, the startup screen will reflect a version
number of "v6.09.000."

==== Internet access by TMG during startup ============

If you are using a personal firewall, don't be startled when
TMG v6.09.000 attempts to briefly access the Internet when it
is run. There is no cause for concern. The new Message
Manager is merely checking for new messages as described

==== 20% off your next purchase of data CDs ===========

TMG v6.09 Gold Edition users will discover that the new
Message Manager delivers a special 20% off coupon for the
purchase of data CDs if purchased through the Wholly Genes
