 Gramps 2.0.7 released.

The GRAMPS project is proud to announce the 2.0.7 ("Romanes eunt domus") release of GRAMPS.

This release is primarily a bug fix release, but some new, optional functionality has been added. If you are running GNOME 2.10 or greater, and have the gnome-python-extras package installed, a spelling checker is available for all Notes.

Thumbnailing has also been improved. GRAMPS will now use thumbnailers associated with mime types to produce thumbnail images. So, if you have the "evince" PDF reader installed, thumbnails for PDF files will be generated. If "totem" is installed, thumbnails for video files will be generated.

A new Descendant Wall Chart report has been added, and this will eventually replace the Descendant Graph report. This report can scale a report to fit on the specified sheet of paper, and is not limited to three generations per page. In addition, the customization of the printed data has been improved. The text variable substitution has been improved. Before, if you specified:

born $b
died $d

The text substitution for a living person would produce:

Person Name
born XX/XX/XX

A new type of variable substitution has been added, using the '%' notation, which will remove the line if a string match is empty. In this case, the following:

born %b
died %d

Will produce:

Person Name
born XX/XX/XXX

Since the "died" line had an empty string substitution, the line was simply removed.
