    What is the current PGV roadmap ? I'm a bit confused by the webtrees fork, which presents itself as "the web's leading on-line collaborative genealogy application", despite that seems not to be confirmed by online downloads statistics …

    I currently use PGV 4.2.4, and as I'm a professionnal of web-development, I'm looking for the best choice for my family genealogical website, according to criterias focused on opensource values.
    So, what happens with PGV roadmap ? team ? future ? What should users expects ?

    There has been no change in the 'roadmap' about which you inquire, since John Finlay's posting in the main discussion thread:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/phpgedview/forums/forum/185165/topic/3558977  dated 2010-02-18 09:58:37 CST.

    A couple of threads had some additional discussion:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/phpgedview/forums/forum/185165/topic/3683698
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/phpgedview/forums/forum/185165/topic/3643285

    Further, it is quite a testament to the strength and durability of the project that these forums are still so active and the project has so many users. Helpful advice on solving problems is posted very rapidly and critical, data-endangering issues are patched quickly.

    Based on my seven plus years of experience here, unless someone with some significant coding experience, who has participated for some substantial time in support of this project steps forward, PGV will remain a stable release, fully-functional, but not evolving project for some time.  But then, this answer is similarly "op ed'd" in the several threads to which we refer.

    Thank you very much, Stephen. That's clear enough.
