Version 5 marked a turning point in the history of MacFamilyTree. It had been developed by Synium since version 3, but distribution and anything else was handled by OnlyMac. Starting with version 5, the entire development, distribution, customer support and marketing were done in-house. Version 5 was another complete re-write to shed off some legacy limitations, utilize even more of Apple’s core technologies like CoreData and rethink the user interface design, resulting in an overall more flexible, more clearly structured and more powerful application. Launched in October 2007, Version 5 managed to attract a rush of new users, no previous version was downloaded nearly as often. And another record we broke: more than 100 free updates introduced new features while at the same time resolving known issues, improving the product quality considerably. Some of the features introduced in version 5 and given away for free to all of our faithful customers: The Media Browser (5.1), the Fan Chart (5.1), the Virtual Tree (5.2), completely rewritten reports (5.3), the new website export feature (5.4), World History (5.5), the new search pane (5.5), improved media file handling, including the recording of audio and video interviews directly in MacFamilyTree’s editors (5.6) and the new Facts and Sources handling (5.7).
