Second Site Version 3.4 Released

This release includes two new indented charts, Descendant (Indented) and Pedigree (Indented). Based on the feedback from beta testers and users who commented on early previews, the new charts will be popular. The charts can be expanded or collapsed to show a subset of the tree and that allows the user to focus on the people of interest. You can see an example descendant chart and an example pedigree chart on the Second Site Demonstration site.

Second Site 3 now supports Web Fonts to expand font-family choices beyond the short-list of fonts that are supported by browsers. This facility must be used with care—Web Fonts have to be downloaded with the pages that used them, and thus they can make pages load slowly—but there are some great ways to use Web Fonts, such as to brand your site by using a distinctive font for the Site Title. The Second Site demonstration site uses the font "Lobster" for that purpose.

This release also includes other minor enhancements. For a description of the other changes, please see the Change Log.

Download and Install

All existing Second Site 3 customers should download this free upgrade via the Downloads page. When you install the latest version, you will not lose any SDF files or sites you made with any previous version of Second Site 3.

I strongly recommend that you uninstall any previous version of Second Site 3 before you install this version. Previous versions of Second Site 3 include files that are no longer needed; if you install this version into a folder that already contains a previous version, those files will not be removed.

If you install this version of Second Site 3 on a PC that had a previous version of Second Site 3 installed, you will not need your registration information.
