In Topic: Rootsmagic Mac version 8

Thanks, Jerry. I read a cryptic note from a persion who saw one of the Version 8 demos, describing an improvement that makes RM more Ancestry-like in the search for information and that will help us add directly from Ancestry into our trees within RM, allowing us to bypass the use of TreeShare to seek for stuff in Ancestry, update the Ancestry tree and then continue with the cumbersome process of synchronizing the RM database with the Ancestry tree.


The dilemma is:  RM doesn't realize that TreeShare is next to useless without Global Update. However, if version 8 moves an Ancestry-like use of Hint functionality into RM, then the lack of Global Update doesn't matter.

Where can I find a summary of the principal functional enhancements in Version 8?
