Linux Genealogy Desktop CD 6.1 / GRAMPS 3.2.5

A couple of pieces of news, that are somewhat tied together.

First off, last week, GRAMPS 3.2.5 was released and is called the “I intend to live forever” bug fix release:
* Fix Gramps so it again runs with Python 2.5
* Write all notes and sources to gedcom files
* cli fixes (Command Line Interface)
* GeneWeb and LegacyGedcom fixes
* NarrativeWeb fixes
* Memory leak fixes
* Various other small fixes
* Many translation updates

GRAMPS ( which stands for Genealogical Research and Analysis Management Programming System, is a free/open source genealogy application written in Python, that supports Linux, BSD, Solaris, Windows, and Mac OS X.

You can download GRAMPS here (SourceForge)

Also, just a few days ago, Linux Genealogy CD 6.1 was released, and it includes GRAMPS 3.2.5. It is based on Ubuntu 10.10. Linux Genealogy Desktop CD allows you to either run some genealogy software off of a CD (aka the Live CD), or to permanently install the genealogy software and Linux onto your computer. It does include GraphViz which is responsible for drawing the charts and graphs within GRAMPS.

For more information and download links, see the Linux Genealogy CD at page.

Keep in mind that while the Linux Genealogy Desktop CD is obviously Linux-related, GRAMPS itself can be run on Windows and Mac OS X (and even Solaris).
