Release Candidate 5.04
Written on 20/06/12 at 22:44:04 GMT by BrianP
There appears to be a bug in release candidate 5.0.4. I downloaded 5.0.0 yesterday and imported a GEDCOM and my notes appeared to be formatted correctly. One note read: 1851 Allendale Town, Northumberland 1861 Broadwood Hall, Allendale 1891 Lanchester Jnt Hospital, Bunker Hill, Leadgate 1901 509 Leadgate, Leadgate, Co Durham 1911 10 Stanley Road, West Hartlepool
Today I upgraded to 5.0.4 and the above note now reads 1851 Allendale Town, Northumberland1861 Broadwood Hall, Allendale1891 Lanchester Jnt Hospital, Bunker Hill, Leadgate1901 509 Leadgate, Leadgate, Co Durham1911 10 Stanley Road, West Hartlepool
Some notes are OK, many are affected as above - it's as if the "CONT" tags are being read as "CONC".
I've uninstalled 5.0.4 and reinstalled 5.0.0 and my notes are correct again.
Of course, I'm very new to Family Historian, so I may be screwing up, but I can't see how.

I can't reproduce this, can anyone else?

I have now reproduced this and passed it to calico.
As this a pretty major bug please don't install V5.0.4 at the moment or if you do avoid going into note fields.
Release Candidate 5.04

This is just to say that we have confirmed that there is indeed a bug in 5.0.4 as reported, which can have the effect that line endings in notes can be lost. We will put up a fix for this as a matter of urgency.
I should point out that I never knew there was a 5.0.4 update. I have just received an FHUG newsletter recommending that I upgrade to 5.0.5 Do I need to upgrade to 5.0.4 first? I cannot find a version of 5.0.4 to download. There is no guidance I can find to explain whether 5.0.4 has been withdrawn and replaced by 5.0.5 Help please
re: 5.0.4 users please upgrade to 5.0.5

I haven't downloaded the 5.0.4 update yet; should I just download the 5.0.5 on top of my installed 5.0.2 or should I download the 5.0.4 followed by the 5.0.5 update?

You can always update to the latest version as long as your current version number begins with 5. However, there is now a version 5.0.6 available so upgrade to that!
