Family Tree Magazine – Apple Picking (July 2008) (Version 2.2): Beginners who want the guided data entry but won’t mind Genealogy Pro’s sourcing limitations. Alternatively, experienced database users also may like the program’s structured approach and its ability to export to a SQL format.

Release 5
Release 5 is intended to be the final pre-release version of Genealogy Pro 2.0. Release 5 is recommended for all users. It provides quite a few updates and two new features:
* Fixed bug where Individuals browser didnt update properly after adding new parents
* In the Individuals browser, the selection now stays the same after changing the name, even when the name is the sort field
* The formatting sort preferences for the individuals browser works as it should
* Sorting in the Individuals browser improved
* Fixed bug where deleting an image/document deleted the image/documents, even though it may have been linked to another record
* Fixed bug where multiple files were not loaded into a scrap book field when muliple files were dragged from the finder directly onto the field in the Individual or Family browser
* A new report type – the Ahnentafel report – has been implemented
* Merge file utility has been implemented, allowing exchange of files with other genealogists note: The database table format for individuals and families has been changed slightly to implement the merge facility. If you have built up a database using the previous pre-release versions, you may need to save your file as a gedcom file, then import it back to Genealogy Pro format, for the merge facility to work properly.
* Privacy functions have ben expanded to allow setting privacy of a lineage

Release 4
* Fixed problem where email was sometimes not copied into web page preferences
* Fixed bug where images not scaled correctly in some instances
* Fixed a image processing memory leak
* A new feature in this release is the Family Report – this is a summary view similiar to the web interface family view
* Fixed Gedcom import/export for non-standard name fields (eg aka, birth_name, etc)
* When the field names are changed, there is now a ‘memory’ of field name changes, so changes are reflected in new documents
