Ahnenblatt
Create and manage your family tree with this free genealogy package

Ahnenblatt is a free tool which makes it easy to create and manage a family tree.

The program installs easily, no worries about adware or anything else (there's not as much as a "Donate" button). And the simplest way to see how it all works is to click File > Open and choose one of the sample trees, then explore the various options.

You can define all the information you need about every ancestor, for instance: their parents, siblings, marriages and children; baptism, confirmation and funeral-related details; pictures and other related files, details on sources, text notes and more.

All this can be presented as a family tree, an ancestors tree, an hourglass chart, or in the form of multiple lists (Ancestors, Descendants, Family, Birthday and more).

There are plenty of handy extra tools here. Click Extras/ Show All Picture Files within the sample project, for instance, and you can review all the photos you've gathered so far - an excellent way to bring your work to life.

Or, if you want to share the information with others, your data can be saved as a GEDCOM file, an HTML page, an entire web site, a Windows Help file, XML or CSV files, even burned to CD.

If there's a small issue here it's that the Help file is available solely in German. But as the author points out, "Ahnenblatt is a freeware program made by a single person in his spare time as a hobby", it's hardly fair to criticise him for not living up to the standards of commercial software.

And aside from that, Ahnenblatt is a surprisingly capable tool with a stack of features which makes it very easy to organise, present and share your genealogy data.

2.99c

Fixed problem with CSV import
Minor corrections

Verdict:

A very powerful genealogy tool, particularly strong when it comes to sharing your data

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
