I wanted to make a quick post before the week was done to give an update about Service Pack 2, as well as answer some questions about International versions of Family Tree Maker.
As has been posted, Service Pack 2 was pulled after being available for only a few hours. Since that time the Family Tree Maker team has been working very hard to further develop the Service Pack 2 release. Additional time is being taken to test and retest the patch. Dozens of volunteers have been testing variations of the patch and have supplied invaluable feedback. A special thanks to these individuals.
We are still likely 1 to 2 weeks out before Service Pack 2 will be released, depending on the results of some final testing. I will make a new blog post announcing its release as soon as it’s available.
I’ve encountered various questions about the release of the International versions of Family Tree Maker. Below is what has released or what will release in the future:
- Family Tree Maker Canada is currently available in retail stores. It will also be available directly in The Ancestry Store after Service Pack 2 is released.
- Family Tree Maker UK is available from the shop tab on Ancestry.co.uk and in retail stores.
- Family Tree Maker Australia is available through retail stores and genealogy resellers.
- The German and French versions of Family Tree Maker will be in stores next year.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.
