Perhaps to cut down on the 'waiting time' were going to skip RM8 and go straight to RM9 :D


Joking aside sure it will be good news!

So anything in the wind about a release date this year? Anyone else hoping the user interface will be updated/modernized?

There is no new news about an RM8 release date other than "this year". The brief RM8 demos that people have seen at genealogy conferences suggest a much flatter, much more modern user interface. There are very few details from the demos.

It was nice to read the blog entry but people do need to be aware that the RM4 teasing of features lasted 8 months, I would still not be expecting a release until late 2019.


The company has faced sereral challenges I was not fully aware of, I do hope Bruce gets a chance to go back to those roots and engage more fully with the customer base, if thats even possible in todays online world.
