webtrees 1.1.2 released on 11 April 2011

The latest release of webtrees is now available. It includes some great performance improvements on some longer list displays; a wide range of bug fixes; and a new “interactive tree”.

I must admit that I intensely dislike this last item though. It is so “interactive” that it becomes hard for most users to understand. Its also very poorly integrated within the design of the overall software. However, for those like me who prefer a simpler style, we have added a variant of it to our range of “Simpl” modules here. Our version uses much of the same code, but with the distracting components and configuration options removed, leaving just a simple but still interactive tree.

All our kiwitrees client sites have already been upgraded to webtrees 1.1.2.
