tng-title11TNG 11 is almost here! The currently estimated release date is about March 16 or 17, 2016. This major upgrade includes nearly a hundred fixes, enhancements and new features. Here’s a summary of the most significant changes:

  • DNA: Aid your research by keeping track of DNA tests taken by the people in your tree. Enter the specifics once and link them to those affected.
  • Fan Charts: A fan-oriented chart of ancestors can now be displayed for each person in your tree.
  • Data Validation: Several preconfigured validation reports will help you spot potential errors in your data.
  • New Design: Another new template has been added.
  • Family Chart: This view shows a person’s spouse, children and parents all together on one page in graphical fashion.
  • Mobile-Friendly: More improvements here will make your site even more usable on mobile devices.
  • Administration: Enhancements to the Admin menu show quick totals for all data categories, plus an “Important Tasks” area to remind administrators of items that need attention.
  • Heat Maps: Color codes on the Places, Surnames and Search Results pages now show the global distribution of surnames and places.
  • Search: A Google search page now allows you to search across your entire site using Google’s indexes.
  • Timeline: The Simile Timeline layout has been redesigned to be more readable, with separate bands for family and general events.
  • Compatibility: Pro-active changes will make sure TNG remains compatible with the latest versions of PHP.

You’ll be able to get the upgrade at a discount ($14.99) by going back to your previous downloads page. If you’ve lost the URL or access info, send me a message at darrin@lythgoes.net and I’ll send it to you again. If you only purchased TNG or the v10 upgrade recently (in the past 6 months), you’ll be eligible to get the upgrade for free.

Also take note that Simply Hosting does not install upgrades. A helpful 15-minute video will be available to walk you through the process, but there will also be an option to pay an extra $15 to have the upgrade installed for you. If you’re doing the upgrade yourself, take a minute to review the post here from the v10 release on helpful tips for a successful upgrade.
