PhpGedView 4.0 beta 7

April 11, 2006

Another beta for PhpGedView, the seventh this time (and perhaps the final?). PhpGedView is an online genealogy program that utilizes PHP, MySQL, etc., in order to allow collaboration between multiple researchers/genealogists over the internet. You can edit all of the information available, as well as add to it, you can create privacy restrictions (logins required, information of living individuals restricted, etc.). You can download and test it here.

Updates/Developer’s Note:

There are many significant changes and improvements in version 4.0. The most notible change is that version 4.0 no longer includes support for the built-in index mode. This means that version 4.0 requires that you use one of the supported SQL databases. We will continue to maintain the 3.3.x releases for continued support of index mode until PHP 5.x with built-in SQLite is more broadly available.

Version 4.0 also includes enhanced web services developed in partnership with students from Neumont University.

PhpGedView 4.0 beta 6

March 17, 2006

The beta for PhpGedView has received its sixth and potentially final release. PhpGedView is an online genealogy program that utilizes PHP, MySQL, etc., in order to allow collaboration between multiple people over the internet. You can edit all of the information available, as well as add to it, you can create privacy restrictions (logins required, information of living individuals restricted, etc.). It doesn’t look like anything was changed, just bug fixes and final packaging to test before the Final Release of PhpGedView 4.0. You can download and test it here.

Updates/Developer’s Note:
In anticipation of the final release, beta 6 is divided up into several different packages. The purpose of dividing up the packages is to make the default installation smaller but still allow you to include the other options if you want to:
-phpGedView-4.0beta6-all contains everything from the CVS including all languages, places, flags, and themes. This is similar to the other beta releases.
-phpGedView-4.0beta6 release only contains the most popular languages (de, en, fr, he, nl, no, sv), flags, and themes (cloudy, standard, ocean, simplygreen, xenea) and does not contain any places.
-places-4.0beta6 contains all of the places from the “all” package
-languages-4.0beta6 contains all of the languages plus some extra files required for some languages.
-themes-4.0beta6 contains all of the themes from the all release
-flags-4.0beta6 contains all of the flag files
