Update: Family Tree PHP 0.6 Beta

A new version of Family Tree PHP is available for download: version 0.6 Beta. This version contains some major improvements.

Because Family Tree PHP is by now grown into a very complex script, I can no longer test everything myself. The last version (0.5) contained some annoying bugs. They have been fixed in the versions 0.5a, 0.5b and 0.5c. So, version 0.5c is now a stable release and I am now releasing this new version 0.6 as beta. New and existing users can still download and use version 0.5c, but if you want to use the new options of version 0.6, you are encouraged to do so. Any bugs will be fixed as soon as possible, and I hope to be able to release a stable version 0.6 in another month. In the meantime I will be busy with a new beta version as well. In short: I will still be releasing a new beta version about every month, which will be upgraded to a stable version when the next beta version is released. If you want to minimize any risks and effort, wait for the stable releases. If you want the new options as soon as possible, or if you want to help with testing, use the beta releases.
