version 2.1.0-alpha-1 released

Announcing the release of phpmyfamily version 2.1.0-alpha-1

To install just extract the zip over your existing installation - you can also remove old dojo directories

This is the first (announced) release in a while and there are some hopefully interesting new features.

It's an alpha release for a couple of reasons (although I'm not aware of any significant problems)

  • there are some technical upgrades that should work but haven't been tested on a wide variety of installations
  • some of the new features are more complex to install and I'm looking for feedback
  • it could still do with a little cosmetic work, including on some of the wording on the new pages

Thanks to Nino V for the previously released but unannounced feature of a PDF of descendents

The other main new features are:

  • Able to view the entire tree in a variety of formats (Charts from the homepage) - I'm interested in feedback on this - GraphViz provides, in my opinion, the best output but requires the use of another program either server or client side - hence trickier to install
  • A timeline of the whole database
  • A word cloud of all the surnames
  • Google Analytics available

As ever the CHANGELOG and INSTALL files are the place to go for (a little) more detail

Enjoy.
