      All:

      We have just released a new build of Ancestral Quest 12.1. This is build 33.

      If you have a recent copy of AQ, you should see a notice about this new build in the "Newsline" screen that comes up at startup of AQ. If you have an older version of AQ, you should go to AQ's "Internet" menu, then to "Check for Latest AQ Release".

      Below is a list of the enhancements and fixes in this build.

      Gaylon


      =============================

      ** General Enhancements

      Name Entry: In the Individual Add/Edit screen, you can now swap the order of entering names. By default, you still enter surname then given names, but you can reverse this.

      Internet Search Parameters: Added "FO" (First name only) and "MN" (Married Name) as parameters that you can use when searching Internet databases. The "FO" option will only take the first given name, even if the person has multiple given names. The "MN" option will first try to use the name you may have entered for the person in the "Married Name" field of the Individual Edit's "More" tab. If that field is blank, then for a male, it takes the surname. For a female, it then takes the surname of the first husband if the woman was ever married, and if not, it takes her birth surname.

      Searching FamilySearch.org: FamilySearch has made some changes recently to the method of searching the 1 billion records available on their site. AQ's searching was updated to continue to correctly search these records.


      ** General Bug Fixes

      Name List: If you searched for a person while on the Name List view, then immediately switched to a different view, the person you just searched for would not be the primary person in the new view. Fixed.

      Advanced Filtering: AQ's field filter did not properly find individuals when you set up a filter with "Sources (All) Does Not Exist." Fixed.

      Confidential Relationships: If you marked a man or woman as "Confidential" and also marked the relationship as confidential, the other partner should not have been treated as confidential. In some cases, this was not working properly. Fixed.

      Published Family Book Index: In some cases, the index enties from one page of the index would repeat themselves on the next page. Fixed.

      Translations: AQ was not properly changing some non-English characters from upper case to lower case, and visa versa. As a result entry of dates with umlauts were not working, and there were some other sorting issues. Fixed.

      Translations: If a translator tried to translate the source type descriptors, they were unable to get a good translation. Fixed.


      ** Enhancements to nFS Features

      Family Sync Screen: Added a checkbox for "Expand all data". This new box is checked by default. You can remove the checkmark. Without the checkmark, this screen will act as it has in the past: each family will be shown initially by just the names of the parents, and you will need to click on "expander" buttons to see details of the family. With the checkmark, this screen will initially show all families fully expanded.

      Diagnostics: Some users occasionally see errors dealing with the storage of nFS linking items when they run Check/Repair. We have added a preference item to help detect when such an error would first occur.


      ** Bug Fixes to nFS Features


      Seal to Parent: AQ was not properly sending Seal to Parent data to nFS, nor was it properly deleting Seal to Parent data that you had uploaded to nFS. Fixed.

      Seal to Parent: For some children on the Family Sync screen, special codes such as "Ready", "In Progress", etc. were not being shown. Fixed.

      Seal to Parent Dates/Translations: When displaying and importing SP dates using non-English language modules, these dates sometimes did not encode properly. Fixed.
