==== 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 ===========

Message Manager delivers a special 20% off coupon for the

purchase of data CDs if purchased through the Wholly Genes
