🚧 Work In Progress

This wikipage is a cloned outline from a template. It is a VERY temporary placeholder in my personal discussion area.

Since you are reading this paragraph, then the I have not progressed to the point of trimming out the excess template material. That means the wikipage is certainly not ready for collaborative editing yet. Multiple people editing now might unintentionally overwrite their work. Contact me via the Discourse discussion forum while this page exists as a 'Discussion' page.

Reverted Edit to 5.0 user manual

The 5.0 user manual is not the same as the 5.1 user manual. Patsy B Lefebre (talk)

Added the language templates to the 5.1 page but some other page redirects must be missing, because the Finnish index page does show the language name of "suomi" at the top of the page. Patsy B Lefebre (talk) 22:17, 24 June 2022 (UTC)
Needed a REDIRECT from the English titled Finish "fi" page to the "FI" prefixed Finish page, then you need to edit the Finish page at least once for the language template to update and show "suomi", clear as mud! Daleathan (talk) 00:26, 25 June 2022 (UTC)

First binary for Apple Mac

The fist binary [*.DMG] was released by Emrys Williams for Gramps 3.1.2 back in 2009

see the following messages:

  • [Gramps-devel] GTK+ native on MAC OS X / From: Richard Taylor <rjt-g...@th...> - 2005-11-24 08:55:09 / "This should mean that a MAC native pygtk should be possible and hopefully enough of the pygnome stuff to enable GRAMPS in native MAC OS cocoa form."
  • [Gramps-users] Who uses gramps on Apple Mac? / From: Emrys Williams <emrys...@ev...> - 2009-05-16 08:23:38 / "I'm contemplating trying to organise better support for gramps on mac, somehow or another. I'd like to know how many people are currently using gramps on mac and how they get on."
  • [Gramps-devel] gramps on mac / From: Emrys Williams <emrys...@ev...> - 2009-06-20 21:26:46 / "Much to my surprise, I now have a gramps built with jhbuild running on Mac! I wrote a jhbuild moduleset to build python 2.6.2, and that magically made everything spring to life using the 3.1.2 gramps....So I have some bugs to investigate and some more organisation of the build to do, then I can think about bundling the whole lot up as a one-click-install Mac package. But it does actually work!"

Before that Gramps could be installed using Macports ( indicates person was using Gramps 2.2.10 ) from about 2006 and even before that Apple users could use something called FINK for version 1.0.10 of GRAMPS!
