Version 5.0.0-beta1, an experimental pre-release.

Make sure to backup before you upgrade.

The key word is experimental!

It might be unwise to "upgrade" your main/real gramps
family tree into 5.0.0-beta1. In general, we recommend
you make a copy of your family tree instead (typically by
doing a "gramps XML" export), then try 5.0.0-beta1 on
the copy. (You can keep things really separate by using
the GRAMPSHOME environmental variable, if you want.)

It's been over four months since 5.0.0-alpha3 was released
so we are interested in your feedback, especially if you
discover any bugs or problems which we haven't noticed.

  • Use Gdk.Event.triggers_context_menu in osmgpsmaps.py.
