Latest Release Information for AQ 16

The most current release of Ancestral Quest 16 is Build 5. All changes made to AQ 16 since its initial release are listed below.

Changes in Build 5 (2/18/2020)

  • Syncing with FamilySearch: A minor bug was discovered in build 4 while syncing with FamilySearch which caused AQ to crash under certain situations. Fixed.

Note: Build 4 was only available for a few hours before the above bug was noticed, so only a few users had time to download build 4. For these few users, this build 5 will correct the one bug they may have experienced. For most users, please review the list of enhancements and fixes for build 4 below, as your update to build 5 from build 3 will include these additional changes.


Changes in Build 4 (2/13/2020)

Enhancements to General Features

  • Name List View, Custom Reports, Filter/Focus: Added several new fields to these listing tools: Marriage Type, Marriage Status, Same-sex relationship indicator, Phonetic and Romanized names, Name Template setting, and these LDS ordinance items: Confirmation Date and Place, Initiatory Date and Temple code.
  • File Search: When searching for AQ family files, the screen is wider to more easily see full path names.

Bug Fixes to General Features

  • Charts with Photos: In some rare cases, if you printed a chart with photos, and you were working from the Descendants, Individual or Timeline views, the photos might not print properly. Fixed.

Enhancements to FamilySearch and LDS Features

  • Confirmation/Initiatory Ordinances: These ordinances were not showing in all screens and reports. We believe we have now added these to all appropriate screens and reports.
  • Couple Facts: FamilySearch has recently added some new facts and events related to couples, including a "Living Together" event type, which corresponds to AQ's "Not Married" type. AQ now syncs with these new types.
  • Reserved Ordinances: When using the "Review/Selectively Sync" screen to review your local record of an ancestor with the FamilySearch record of the same ancestor, if LDS ordinances are "In Progress", AQ will show when the ordinance was reserved and by whom.

Bug Fixes to FamilySearch and LDS Features

  • Importing from FamilySearch: In some cases, when importing a standard event while on the "Review/Selectively Sync" screen, the data would be placed into an "Other" event rather than in the primary event fields. Fixed.

A few other minor enhancements and fixes were made.


Changes in Build 3 (12/07/2019)

Enhancements to General Features

  • Ancestry.com World Connect Search: Ancestry.com has made recent changes that require a different method of searching for records in the World Connect project. We understand that they are not finished with these changes, but this build of AQ allows users, at least for now, to again search on World Connect.
  • Keyboard Mnemonics: Keyboard mnemonics were added to some of the newer screens in version 16.
  • Check/Repair: Check/Repair now compares the relationship 'same-sex' status against the gender of the partners, and if needed, sets the relationship status to match the partners gender status.

Bug Fixes to General Features

  • Same Sex Relationship Flag: Users with some builds of Windows 10 reported that the Relationship screen showed the status flag for traditional couples as same-sex. The underlying data was correct, but the display was sometimes shown incorrectly. This was not a problem for most users. Fixed.
  • FamilySearch Menu: If you had disabled AQ's ability to sync with FamilySearch, the FamilySearch menu was not turned off. Fixed.

Bug Fixes to FamilySearch and LDS Features

  • Advanced Source Importing from FamilySearch: While creating the Video Tutorial on how to use the Advanced Importing of Sources from FamilySearch, and on converting already imported sources from FamilySearch into structured AQ sources, a few minor display issues were discovered and fixed. (The video was created with these fixes in place. This build makes those fixes available to users.)
  • Memories Manager: FamilySearch made a change in their API that partially broke AQ's ability to read a full list of memories from FamilySearch, particularly when the list was long. This caused a few side-effects in AQ's Memories Manager screen. This build provides some corresponding adjustments so that AQ again reads the full list of memories.
  • Confirmation/Initiatory Ordinances on Family Group Record: If you are displaying LDS temple ordinances, and have set the preference to handle the Confirmation and Initiatory ordinances, the FGR now displays these.

Changes in Build 2 (10/22/2019)

Bug Fixes to General Features

  • Find/Replace on Full Names: In the rare case that you were replacing a place name with 5 place levels, and it found this in a "Death" event, the replace would fail. Fixed
  • Freeform Citations: When you first entered the Citation screen, if you were using a Freeform source which used the '%C' parameter to include citation details in the source reference, the Sample Footnote did not initially display correctly. Fixed

Bug Fixes to FamilySearch and LDS Features

  • Review/Sync Individual Screen: If you select events/facts to download from FamilySearch, then before saving, you clicked on the button to view Parents/Siblings or Spouses/Children, the changes didn't save. Fixed.
  • Confirmation/Initiatory Ordinances on Individual Edit Screen: There were some problems with moving from field to field with the keyboard, and using the Ditto Down (F9) key. Fixed.

A few other minor enhancements and fixes were made.
