Anyone have any idea when a version =>4 might become available for Debian 7?
Presuming something comes within the next 6 months or so, what should be ready to do with my 3.4 database? Am I correct that it is not compatible with newer versions?
Another question: Is there any way to create just a list of all names within my database - and one that would include the current ID #?

You could download source and compile/install yourself. That might lead
you into dependency problems, though.
At this point, I should say I'm not on the dev team, just an interested
reader of the list.

There have been some major changes between versions 3 & 4. From v4.1.1
(IIRC) the Place structure has changed entirely. It's now hierarchical,
rather than the flat model it has in the version you're using. Some
users don't like it. There are plenty of other changes, too. Far
too many to enumerate here. There's also the inevitable swathe of
bug-fixes, of course.

For a full list of what's changed, been fixed and/or added, you'll have

<https://gramps-project.org/2016/09/gramps-4-2-4-released/> but has links
to archive versions of the page where you can view changes for previous

Depends: If you're interested only in Gramps, it's up to you - "You pays
your money and makes your choice". OTOH, Debian is approaching freeze,
so support for Wheezy will go away over time. This might be a good time
to update to stable. Which, of course, will become old-stable when
Stretch is released.
