OK yes I know that you all already know. The download has been available
since sunday. But it seemed like there ought to be an official
announcement - so this is it! Version 4 is now officially out. The boxes
have arrived at the premises of at least some resellers, some of which have
already been sent on. The CD upgrades will take a little longer; and of
course it will also take a little longer for boxes and CD upgrades to reach
resellers in other countries.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped get
version 4 ready (and for the patience of everyone else who was waiting for
it). The beta testers did a fantastic job ('beta testers', if you haven't
come across this before, are real users who do pre-release testing) - so
thank you very much to all of them.
And finally - thank you most of all to Jane (Jane Taubman this is). Jane
does not work for us. She set up and runs the Family Historian User Group
- if you don't know it, you should). She is also
a brilliant administrator on this list (much better than me, her
co-administrator), a great help for everyone with questions or problems, and
a great source of help and advice for us.
We haven't got a proper tour of version 4 for you yet, but I've put some
screenshots up instead (see www.family-historian.co.uk/tour
) for those who
haven't had a look at it yet.
