=== TMG v6.06 is now available ==========================


The Master Genealogist v6.06.000 is now available. This free update includes a collection of bug fixes and a one changed feature as follows:




o GEDCOM export - The links for external exhibits will now be exported in the same case as stored in the data tables. This should facilitate using GEDCOMs to create web sites on Unix servers.




o Picklist filters will no longer be transferred to the Project Explorer when an operation such as editing a name tag triggers a refiltering.


o A lockup caused by opening the Exhibit Log from the Master Place List or Edit Place screen has been fixed.


o Under some circumstances, it was possible to edit a source memo and then edit an event memo and the latter changes would be lost.


o Error messages that occurred after changing the tag type on name or relationship Tag Entry screens have been fixed.


o An error message occurred if the first entry in the [ExternalUtilities] section of the app.ini had an invalid path.


o Project Explorer - Changing the sort order changed the focus.


o Languages - A couple of localization issues were corrected.


This free v6.06.000 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 "v6.06.000."



=== Wholly Genes on reduced staff next week ===============


This Sunday marks the beginning of the 2005 Genealogy Conference and Cruise hosted by Wholly Genes Software. For the following seven days, most of the Wholly Genes staff and about 450 of our closest friends will be cruising the Western Caribbean, enjoying the presentations by some of the foremost genealogists in the field, and catching a few rays.


During this period, the Wholly Genes office will be open during regular business hours but operating with a reduced staff. We thank you in advance for your patience. We especially appreciate the many experienced users who are always the first line of support for others on the TMG-L mailing list, the Wholly Genes support forum (http://www.WhollyGenes.com/forums.htm'>http://www.whollygenes.com/forums.htm), and elsewhere. Thanks, as always, for your support of the TMG community!
