iFamily for Leopard has received a minor update, unlike last week’s iFamily for Leopard 2.752 update.
Version 2.753 is mainly for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion users
iFamily for Leopard V2.753 Changes
Tweaked the text display to account for a bug on Mountain Lion.
Signed the application with an Apple Certificate. (But not the installer). You may still be required to change the settings on Mountain Lion to allow installation from “Mac Store + Registered Developers”
Current iFamily users, you can automatically update through the iFamily for Leopard menu. It can also be downloaded from the iFamily for Leopard website if you would prefer to update it manually or try it out (if you aren’t currently using it).
iFamily for Leopard has received a major update, bringing it up to version 2.752, and more importantly, adding support for OS X Mountain Lion. iFamily for Leopard is a Mac genealogy application available for Mac OS X 10.4, 10.5, 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8, one of the very few in the genealogy software field that supports that many OS X versions.
iFamily for Leopard V2.752 Changes
Mountain Lion Compatibility.
- Added OSX 10.8 to the list of allowed Operating Systems.
- Replaced the unknown OSX version crash with a dialog suggesting to update.
- Developer certificate has not yet been added. A control click on the installer and selecting “open” will circumvent Gatekeeper.
Added OSX Version to the registration details. iFamily now runs under OSX10.4 to 10.8, (Tiger to Mountain Lion) but it is becoming increasingly difficult to support Tiger Users without restricting later OSX’s so we need to gather some stats on which OSX you’re all using.
It’s $19.99 at Apple’s Mac App Store and it weighs in at 4.08 GB.
It requires at least Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later and one of these Macs:
- iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
- MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
- MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
- MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
- Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
- Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
- Xserve (Early 2009)
There maybe a retail version you can pick up in an Apple Store or have it shipped to you, but for now this is it, just like with OS X 10.7 last year.

It was a pretty big deal for a lot of people. Ben Sayer at Genealogy Tools said the issues have been present since last weekend. Before I updated, I was getting the message that I was offline.
You can click on the Family Tree Maker 2 menu and then “Check for Updates” if you have it installed. It can also be purchased/downloaded through Ancestry.com.
