@Nick-Hall Nick-Hall released this Jul 26, 2021

Version 5.1.4 - a new maintenance release, has been released.

Make sure to backup before you upgrade.

Changes since v5.1.3:

  • Update translations: cs, de, es, fi, fr, hu, nl, pt_BR, ru, sv, zh_CN.
  • Update copyright date.
  • Fix probably alive if death without date.
  • Place editor, copy and paste of lat and long text no longer auto-populating latitude and longitude fields.
  • Fix for crash when changing views if part of toolbar is not shown because of a small screen when changing views.
  • Fix bottombar always showing after restart, even when not wanted.
  • Always use filtered collation names. Store the Sqlite3 collations in the __collations array to short-circuit re-creation.
  • Fix issue with German relation calculator fixed issue when more than 24 generations between the two people.
  • Add file logging for macOS. When Gramps is launched from macOS's LaunchServices it doesn't have a sys.stderr attached so the default stream logger goes to /dev/null. Use a FileHandler in tht case, writing the log to $TMPDIR/gramps-pid.log. This will help particularly in analyzing crashes where python shuts down as there's no crash report in that case.
  • Fix libplaceview to avoid exception when mapservice is no longer present.
  • Fix References Gramplet for inadequate updates when other objects change.
  • Fix geofamily crash if a family has no father.
  • Home Person setting does not convey in a merge.
  • Fix CSV export of view to only put single CR character.
  • Add Media filter rule 'HasMedia' to list of media rules for editor.
  • Need to set locale.textdomain under linux. _build_popup_ui() ignores translated strings without locale.textdomain set.
  • Change category of 'MatchesEventFilter'.
  • Fix issue where separator between top and bottom bar of View creeps up.
  • Fix Locations Gramplet (Enclosed by) to properly display certain nested places when the smallest place has undated enclosure and larger places are dated.
  • Fix Family Tree Manager drop error on Windows.
  • Fix exportvcalendar error is "is not" with a literal (Python 3.8 issue)
  • Handle not found when copying source from the citation tree.
  • Fix call to 'file' function, which doesn't exist in Python3.
  • Fix write_lock_file exception when USERNAME is missing.
  • Fix EditPlace so Tab key doesn't get stuck on Private icon.
  • Fix Tag report for places that have a hierarchy.
  • Fix exception when cancelling out of a db upgrade in GUI.
  • Icon file changes:
    • Install 128x128 and 256x256 application icons.
    • Install MIME type icons into the hicolor theme.
    • Remove gnome-mime- prefix from icon filenames.
    • Install application icons into correct directories.
  • Fix error in Birthday and Anniversary report. Fixes an error triggered when the first person_handle in the list has a death event, but no birth event and does not have family relationships. These conditions lead to the local variable short_name not being declared before it comes time to process death events.
  • Fix graphdoc to properly escape characters in ids for Graphviz.
  • Replace inspect.stack() with inspect.currentframe(). Works around Python issue #12920 which causes every call to inspect.trace() to fail because __main__ is always the starting point.
  • Fix crash sorting on columns in Selectors with TreeModels.
  • Fix progress bar freeze due to changes in Gtk.
  • Fix svgdrawdoc for text containing XML invalid characters.
  • Mac:
    • Update PyICU to 2.7.2 in macOS build.
    • Update dependencies. Includes moving berkeleydb and pybsddb over from gtk-osx.
    • Further changes for bundling with Python 3.8.
    • Set __file__ if is run as __main__.
    • Add geocode-glib to build.
    • Note: TLS changes have forced an update of gnutls that builds correctly only on macOS 13 or later. The minimum required is still macOS X 10.9 but libsqlite3 crashes during shutdown on 10.9. This appears to be harmless: all data are already written to the database, but macOS will put up an "unexpectedly quit" message and the database will be locked at start up. macOS X 10.11 and later seem not to be affected.

@prculley prculley released this Aug 21, 2019

Make sure to backup before you upgrade..

  • Bump required Python version to 3.3, Gtk version 3.12

    nb, nn, pl, po, pt_BR, ru, sl, sv, uk, vi

    reports. Edit/Preferences/Genealogical Symbols to enable.

  • New: On restart after crash, offer to run Check & Repair

  • New CLI commands; 'safe' mode and 'default' to help user with debugging

  • Narrative web fix:

    • some strings not translated
    • The confidence and the date are not translated in the family map page.
    • The date doesn't use the specified date format.
    • Markers incorrectly placed. In the map pages, the markers are not placed
      where it should be. Reproducible when zoom in/zoom out.
    • Background not correctly set. If you use the Web_Basic-Cypress.css,
      the foreground and background use the same color, so you see nothing.
      You must hover the fields to see the text
    • Places list is not sorted depending on the selected language. If you
      start gramps in english or another language then try to generate a
      narrative web report in another language, the navigation alphabet is
      incorrect. This is true for the place list and the person list.
    • OSM forward all http resquest to https.
    • When we are on a mobile phone or a small device, we suppress the
      navigation tab. In place, we have a new icon on the upper left
      which is used to show the dropdown menu.
    • For Home, Introduction and Contact, If we have an image and this image
      contains regions, show the regions. We can go directly to the person page
      associated to this region. If we click on the image, we go directly to
      the associated media page. This will be true only if we selected
      "include images and media objects" and "create and only use thumbnail"
      is unselected

    • Add compact Ancestry trees using Buchheim/Walker algorithm
      This enhancement adds a new 'compact' field to the Narrated Web Report.
      A compact tree is one that is not a simple binary layout but uses the
      algorithm of Buchheim/Walker to create a layout that is sensible but also
      compact. Creating a compact layout is slower than a simple binary tree
      but the results are significantly improved and do not leave large areas
      of whitespace where there are no nodes to be shown.
    • Make relationships optional in narrative web
    • Option to have Places and Sources pages
    • Narrative should come first right after the name, gender and parent
      information in individual page

      that the entire search string matches a single one of the Person's names,
      the function will require that each word in the search string matches any
      of the Person's name fields.
  • filters rule has attribute: Check all values of an attribute type and not
    only the first one.

  • filters rule have children person filter: Check all families of a person
    for children and not only the first

  • Graph reports:

    • Better typography in graph reports Replace hyphen with en-dash.
    • enable Graphviz node port selection, optionable. This enables the
      headport and tailport attributes for all edges in the Graphviz file.
      The default (off) value makes the arrows between persons and/or family
      nodes attach their ends to the respective node at any position. When this
      option is selected, the position facing the node on the other side of the
      arrow is always chosen.

    • Do not use hyphen for living persons in hourglass graph
  • edit link: Add a mailto choice to Internet Address

  • New Clean input data tool: New tool to suppress leading and trailing spaces.
    This tool is looking for people and place names with leading or/and trailing
    spaces. For each entry which contains leading or trailing spaces, a row is
    added in a table. You can see where the spaces are for each row as the name
    is underlined. If you double click on the row, you can edit the Place or
    the Person.

  • CSV import: Add occupation and residence events and attributes in the import
    User can now add the following columns in the csv import file for a person:

    • Occupation place
    • Occupation source
    • Residence date
    • Residence place
    • Residence source
