Towards 2.3

Development of version 2.3 has started. This should result in the stable 3.0 version somewhere in the future.

Some features which are certain:

  • Mark-up in notes: use bold, italics, ... in the notes
  • Multiple Notes: every object can have several separate notes
  • new GEDCOM parser
  • Export to spreadsheet, print, CSV of views
  • Move LDS temple info out of const.py and into an XML file

General TODO list

  • Remove GCONF, provide up grade path
  • Replace the LPRDoc interface (based on gnome-print) with a GTK based print routine. This would remove one of the last gnome-specific libraries, and make portability better. Even more important, the gnome-print interface has been deprecated by the GNOME project, so it will not be around forever. We need to adapt to the new GTK method.
  • before release on multiple notes:
   --> in note view: only show orphaned notes (notes are NOT in remove 
         orphaned notes tool which is what we want )
   --> in note: also public/private on GUI
   --> on upgrade, the notetype should correspond to the object the note      
        is made
           from, so notetype SOURCE, SOURCEREF, ... (DONE for GRDB)
       BENNY, WHY OH WHY DO WE NEED THIS? I want to remove it. Alex.
   --> in sourceref: 
        * remove text tab. (DONE)
        * On import of GEDCOM text tag, or upgrade of < 2.2 database, 
          create a note with type TRANSCRIPT (DONE, type SOURCE_TEXT)
        * On export, do not write the text tag in sourceref, write a
          note instead (DONE)
   --> A GrampsWidget for use in report dialogs to select which 
       notetypes to include in a report
   --> Support for multiple notes in all reports.
   --> Empty text field on Saving Note should throw an error that Note 
       is empty ! (?)
   --> Undo in Note. Serious editing needs an undo function. 
       Furthermore, the function the Clear icon is unclear: tooltip? 
       Other icon?
  • Date calculator. See
