I spent this past weekend playing around with the newly released version of Family Tree Maker 2008. This new version has been built on a completely redesigned platform, and also incorporates some nice new features and what I've come to appreciate as a very nice, intuitive interface. These nice new features, however, are marred (in my opinion) by too much reliance on Internet integration - making this software no longer a stand-alone offering.
In order to give the program the fair chance that it deserves, I will be testing and reviewing it over the course of several weeks. Please feel free to offer feedback on what I've said or how you feel about FTM 2008 by clicking on comments and posting your thoughts below. You can see what I think about the software so far in Family Tree Maker 2008 Review: Part One.
