One of the new features we added in RootsMagic 5 is an on-screen indicator when a new update is available. RootsMagic 5 will still notify you in the News screen which pops up when the program starts, but we discovered that a number of people turn that screen off so they don’t see when a new update is available (and end up contacting tech support about bugs that have long since been fixed).
But now RootsMagic will be able to notify you anytime there is an update available. RM5 will display this indicator in the status bar at the bottom right of the program screen if there is a new update available.
Just click that indicator and RootsMagic will download and install that free update for you. If you want to know what is fixed in the update, read on.
Where is the list of fixes?
We also used to post a blog article any time a minor update was released (along with a list of the items fixed). The problem with that is that those fixes became scattered all over our blog and you weren’t able to easily find all the fixes in one place. We have addressed this by putting a pinned topic up on our RootsMagic Forums (you *did* know we had forums, right)? You will always be able to visit that topic to find out the latest version of the program, as well as what was fixed in each update. Go to:
open the Announcements section (at the top) and you will find the “RootsMagic 5 Update History” right there at the top.
