Personas 0.8

October 18, 2005

Personas 0.8 is now available.. Personas is an open-source genealogy program based on the GenTech Genealogical Data Model from the National Genealogical Society. This is referred to as PersonasConsole version 0.8

Notes:

This release adds classes of the Dates subsystem. Various calendar systems (Gregorian, Hebrew, Islamic, Iso, Julian) are derived from the Calendar class. A point date for each calendar system is represented by classes derived from PointDate (e.g. GregorianPointDate). Internally, a PointDate holds a string representation of the recorded date, the date’s representation in terms of month, day, and year, and also an absolute date (the number of days since Gregorian day 1). A Date class uses the Calendar and PointDate classes to represent a specific date or date range. The Date class is used throughout the model to represent dates entered into the system. This release only implements the Gregorian PointDate class.

Changes:

16 new files are added. The sample Activity and Source instances are extended to include Date representations.
