  1. Hi, all. It's been a couple of years since anyone posted about potential replacements for TMG. It's been five years since it was discontinued and I thought this might be a good time to sum up what is available and/or in development. I've no intention of discontinuing using TMG until The Worthy Successor emerges. I looked briefly at the mailing list at Rootsweb for TMG refugees but don't have time to trawl through it in depth. I also looked at HRE (History Research Environment) which sounds promising. I looked at their January 2019 newsletter, which didn't tell me much. I tried to look at their wiki (as linked on their website) and either the link is wrong or the wiki is down. I looked at the Github site (link broken, but I found it) and found it pretty opaque (I'm not a programmer but am familiar with the site). So can anyone summarize the current status of HRE? Will there be any alpha version available anytime soon? Does it have a planned timeline of two years, five years, ten years? Is there anything else available or on the horizon? Has anyone considered developing a comparatively simple UI update that could be run on top of TMG? Because quite frankly, the only thing making me ask these questions is how each succeeding release of Windows makes TMG harder for me to use. With all love and gratitude to and for Bob for everything he put into TMG for over 20 years. TMG has and continues to enrich my life ever since I first downloaded the beta in what, 1992? Even five years after being discontinued, it is apparently still peerless. What an accomplishment!
