PhpGedView 3 Year Anniversary

A lot of exciting things have happened with the PGV project during the last year. The biggest event is the release of PGV Version 3.3 which adds a lot of the online editing functionality that many people have been waiting for.

Another event that happened this year was PGV's representation at genealogy conferences. See the conference report for more details.

As we move forward into year four, there are also a lot of exciting things to look forward to. The first is a new partnership with Neumont University (formerly Northface University). In this partnership, students from Neumont will be working on PGV related projects as part of their schooling. They will work under the direction of PGV founder John Finlay. In this next quarter the students will be adding the ability for administrators to link people together across multiple PGV websites. This partnership with Neumont University will not change the status of the PhpGedView project. The project will continue to be Open Source under the GPL with the same development team you are familiar with.
