[Gramps-announce] GRAMPS 2.0.7 "Romanes eunt domus" has been released.

Don Allingham
The GRAMPS project is proud to announce the 2.0.7 ("Romanes eunt
domus") release of GRAMPS. The release can be downloaded from the
GRAMPS SourceForge site at http://sf.net/projects/gramps

This release is primarily a bug fix release, but some new, optional
functionality has been added. If you are running GNOME 2.10 or
greater, and have the gnome-python-extras package installed, a
spelling checker is available for all Notes.

Thumbnailing has also been improved. GRAMPS will now use thumbnailers
associated with mime types to produce thumbnail images. So, if you
have the "evince" PDF reader installed, thumbnails for PDF files will
be generated. If "totem" is installed, thumbnails for video files will
be generated.

A new Descendant Wall Chart report has been added, and this will
eventually replace the Descendant Graph report. This report can scale
a report to fit on the specified sheet of paper, and is not limited to
three generations per page. In addition, the customization of the
printed data has been improved. The text variable substitution has
been improved. Before, if you specified:

   born $b
   died $d

The text substitution for a living person would produce:

   Person Name
   born XX/XX/XX

A new type of variable substitution has been added, using the '%'
notation, which will remove the line if a string match is empty. In this
case, the following:

   born %b
   died %d

Will produce:

   Person Name
   born XX/XX/XXX

Since the "died" line had an empty string substitution, the line was
simply removed.

Version 2.0.7 -- the "Romanes eunt domus" release
* Addition of a spelling checker if python-gnome-extras is installed
* Thumbnails are generated for objects other than images if an appropriate
  thumbnailer is found the the GCONF database.
* Enhances Descendant Chart report that allows better control over the
  formatting of the report
* Added support for new %n format in addition to $n, which will cause the
  line to be removed if a text match is not made.
* Bug fixes, bug fixes, bug fixes, and bug fixes.
