v. 0.9 Beta release - Zip File
This beta release is the upcoming v. 0.9. It adds more features, new design, full support for swedish, finnish, portuguese and greek languages, etc.

To install that file, just download it, and unzip it to the location you want on your hard disk.

Then, using your Windows disk explorer or any other tools on other Operating Systems, look for a file named "ancestris.exe" (for Windows) or "ancestris" for Linux and Mac. This file is under a sub-directory (named "bin") of ancestris main directory (named "ancestris"), so /ancestris/bin/ancestris or ancestris\bin\ancestris.exe

For Windows users, if you unzip the file under your directory named "C:\My_Favorites_Programs", you will have ancestris executable under "C:\My_Favorites_Programs\ancestris\bin\ancestris.exe".

If you're running Linux, if you unzip the file under your home directory named "/home/my_name", you will have ancestris executable under "/home/my_name/ancestris/bin".
To run the program, you can use your files navigator, and you click on the file named "ancestris" you've just found in the sub directory "bin", or you open a terminal, you go to the place where you found the file ancestris and you fire it up. So to jump in the right sub directory :
cd /home/my_name/ancestris/bin
and you type : ./ancestris (don't forget to add the dot and the slash before the word ancestris...)
