You should use 3.2, installers are available for most distributions and it
runs where 3.1 runs.
This feature was removed because of privacy complaints and complexity (it
did not work so good actually). Also many people had conflicting desires and
we decided to only include what we can maintain.
To not have 'Living' apear, you can edit ExportGedcom.py, and change
Version 3.3 will have an option for that in the interface.
To set what person is considered living, in the preferences, change the
Dates tab. Those values are used to decide if a person is alive if he has no
date (which is something 2.2 could not handle, while no dates are common for
people who are long death). Eg, if the brother has a birth date, then
maximum sibling age difference and maximum age probably alive are used to
determine if the person is alive or not.
I think what is missing is having the alive calculation run for eg 1990, so
you exclude all personal info of people who where alive in 1990. The old
feature in 2.2 had a setting like that.
Doug, is there an easy way to do that with probably_alive function?
