Release Notes: Version 3.0.21 (May 16, 2003)


1) Searching on Individual ID (supporting comparisons < and >) has been added.
2) Double quotes can be used around text to prevent the default wildcards from being added.
3) Searching on Citation Where in Source, Lead Text, Annotation, or Source has been added.

1) Saved lists are now grouped under list type subheadings: Individuals, Sources, Places, etc.
2) The category "Saved Lists" and the new subheadings can now be selected, as "lists of lists".
3) A confirmation dialog has been added for deletion of lists with members.

1) On the Cited Sources page, separate "Exclude" flags now exist for the annotation text, lead text, and the citation as a whole.
2) On the Assertion page, a column "X" was added to show/edit the exclude citation flags.

1) "Other" reports have been replaced with separate reports of each data type: Individuals, Places, Sources, Media, Researchers, Correspondence Log, Research Targets, Projects, and Lists. Custom report options files of each type can be defined and added as submenus.
2) Lists Report: Additional reporting fields have been added for lists and list members.
3) Individuals Report: a new field category named "Special" has been added. It has two fields available. "Relationship to First Key" and "List Member Description".
4) The "Relationships" Other Report Type has been removed; relationships reports are now accomplished by simply adding the new "Relationship to First Key" report field on the Individuals report type.
5) The new "List Member Description" report field on the Individuals Report can be used to display the special text associated with Potential Problems Lists.
6) The "Information in Frames" master media option now includes information about the linked data.
7) On the Key Page, check boxes for "Default Key" and "Default List" have been added to directly control whether a default key and/or list appear when the report options file is opened.
8) On the Key Page, an option "Flatten rows" has been added for custom reports in table layout: rows having cells with multiple values will be divided into multiple rows with no more than one value in each cell. This option provides more places for page breaks and reduces wasted space.
9) The "Not" indicator ("!") can be used on text filter values to exclude records with the specified value.

1) Individuals: "Events", "Date Range", "Links", "Relationships"
2) Places: "Local Sites"
3) Sources: "Links"

2) The CAUS (cause) tag on a DEAT (death) event is now stored to the event text field rather than to General notes.

1) Added support for "Other" as a Sex type, for individuals identified other than male or female, sometimes called "intersex" or "hermaphrodite".
2) "Check Links" now also checks for orphaned individual identifiers.

1) A Glossary was added. (Note: the updated help file is not included in the patch file)


1) Corrections were made to using the long identifier fields: you can search for individuals which match one or both identifiers entered.
2) Wildcards have been changed on the identifier fields, making it easier to search for given names, surnames, or combinations, with or without the use of slash characters to mark the surname.
3) Searching on "total number of citations" has been corrected. Note: existing databases will need to run "repair database" before the corrected query will be installed.

1) For individuals with multiple birth events, invalid events are flagged only before the first birth event.

2) Importing from Genbox database: extra Individuals View and Database View are no longer opened.
3) Entering temporary license: preferences are now preserved.
