Anyone still working on this product?? It's 2008 and not even a new thread since 2007. Last release in 2005???
No one is actively working on GDBI, but it is not dead. No one else has made any changes for a long time, but the other developers only worked in specific subsystems. I occasionally add a fix, but I didn’t realize it was already 2 years since the latest patch.
I personally use PGV, and only use GDBI as a PGV client, and I only use it when there is a specific feature I need that PGV does not have. But PGV keeps getting better.
Since GDBI started 6 years ago, what you can do on a web site has increased dramatically. No local app will ever become better than PGV except in niche areas. I dabbled in some areas, but never got things to a formal release state. These include local caching/updating, gedcom merging, and tree diagrams.
When I began GDBI, I used jLifelines as a starting point. I hope that some day someone else uses GDBI as a starting point for a better program.
