June 16, 2014 Sequim WA USA. The long awaited Lineage Manager for Dogs (LMD) Version 2 for Windows 10/8.1, 8, 7, Vista, XP, 32 or 64 bit was finally released. It has redesigned user interface retains the flavor of LMD 1.33 and brings a modern look to the app. It has a much more robust database engine called SQLite (use in your Apple products and FireFox and many other things). This is a very fast database that uses a language called SQL to talk to the database. Version 2 was developed on Windows 8.1 64 bit, so yes - it runs on Windows 8 and Windows 10!
But that's not really what you care about - you care about importing your old data from LMD v1.x into LMD v2. LMD v2 can do just that! Most of the data can be brought over so you will not have to re-enter all your dogs. Some things may have to be edited, but you will not have to do nearly as much work as starting over from scratch.
The pedigrees and some other reports are viewed and printed from your web browser instead of directly in the application. The data is saved in three database files and we have full backup (both automatic and manual) and restore implemented.
