Several new features in update of New FamilySearch

The March 2010 update of New FamilySearch includes several changes to the program in addition to the mandatory use of the LDS Account and User Profile. See previous post. These new changes are outlined in the PDF document, "What's New in the New FamilySearch Web Site." The changes outlined include the following:
  • Seeing All Reserved Individuals on the Temple Ordinances List
  • Caching of the Family Tree View
  • Go To Button on the Family Tree View
  • Reserving Ordinances from GEDCOM Files
  • Add Spouse Links on the Family Tree View
  • New Certified Affiliates
In addition, several temple and other types of records have been added from the temples in Asia. To see more details about the changes, go to the New FamilySearch Website and click on the News and Updates icon.

None of these changes address some of the major concerns of the program, such as the inability to make changes to incorrect data submitted by others, or even the ability to either rank the reliability of submitted information or at least, comment directly on the reliability.
