Yes, step relations and inlaws was added in version 3.0.x
It only shows however if there is a relation in a family. Note that for the first level of relation, halfbrothers and halfsisters are also recognized.
In-laws does not show everywhere. It is computationally very intensive and is therefore limited to where it is actually used.

Hi Joan & Stephane

Thankyou for the explanations, I will not be filing a bug.

However I did learn more.

In the example I described (fictional for simplification) I added myself
as a child to my fathers second family (the one with the step mum) and
indicated my relationship with her was as a stepchild, while I still
remaining a member of the first family.

Now relationship calculator works fine.

In the real world it  was my Grandfather who had a step mother. I
entered him as a child of the second family.
Now he is a member of two families (birth father & birth mother) &
(birth father and step mother)

I used the relationship calculator to see my relationship with my
grandfather's stepmother
Relationship calculator showed that.

DEMPSTER, Annie is the great stepgrandmother of  ME!!!

It works !!

The result is in narrativeWeb my grandfather belongs to two families.

============ PARENTS =========
Father      GRAY, Robert     (Birth)
Mother     PRATT, Margaret  (Birth)
Siblings

  1. GRAY, Catherine
  2. GRAY, Robert
  3. GRAY, Gordon


Father     GRAY, Robert    (Birth)
Mother     DEMPSTER, Annie   (Stepchild)
Siblings

  1. GRAY, Catherine
  2. GRAY, Robert
  3. GRAY, Gordon

I don't know if the step mother having the relationship (StepChild)
after her name is correct.

The pedigree works fine, it follows the direct blood line.
