NFS 0.99 Beta

We’re at the middle of the month at the middle of the quarter, so it should be time for the quarterly update to New FamilySearch (NFS). Yup. It’s been three months since the August release of NFS 0.98 so it is time for the November release, version 0.99.

Invitations to participate in the beta went out about a week ago. One beta tester shared the invitation with me. (There was no confidentiality agreement.)

Invitation to beta test NFS 0.99

If the font is too small, you’ll want to know the schedule laid out:

  • Beta test begins a few days after 11 November 2009
  • Beta test lasts until about 16 November 2009
  • Beta 2 begins about 20 November 2009
  • Beta 2 lasts until about 30 November 2009

That means we won’t see 0.99 released until December.

Gary Turner on FHCNET posted a summary of the new features, along with a link to some screenshots:
