Bob Velke posted this on the TMG Mailing List. He hasn't updated the forum yet. Presumably we will get a newsletter soon.

TMG v9 is now available! This major update includes a variety of great
new features that focus on making data entry faster and easier:

- Citations – You can now add a new source without leaving the Citation
screen. If/when you want it, you can still click on the [+] button to
add a source using the full power of the Source Definition Screen.

- Add Multiple People – You can now add shared events (e.g., Census) on
the Add Multiple People and Add Family screens, including the role of
each participant. To set up a shared event, click on Setup on that screen.

- Add Multiple People – You can now add an Age column with a Birth Date
column. If an age and the event date are added for a person, the Birth
date will be calculated automatically.

- Add Multiple People – A new Copy button allows you to copy the value
in the top cell of a column to everyone else on that screen.

- Tag Type Definition - Reminders can now be added for roles.

- Tag Entry - Right-clicking in either principal ID number field offers
an option to switch the Principal ID numbers.

- Tag Entry - The notice about irregular date entry has been revised to
work better and to be more informative.

- Tag Entry - Reminders now show on the Add/Edit Witness screens. A role
reminder will display if it exists and will change if you change the
Witness roles. If no role reminder exists, the tag type reminder will

- Sentences - The right-click menus in the Sentence fields are much more
informative about the role variables being selected.

- Sentences - A number of new variables for event tags have been added.
The “Subject” is the person about whom the current sentence is being
constructed (the current Principal or the current Witness). These new
variables are designed to make the global and custom sentences much more

Subject, Full name
[S+] Subject, Full name without pronoun substitution

[SG] Subject, Given name
[SF] Subject, First name
[SL] Subject, Last name
[SA] Subject, Age

[SGS] Subject, Possessive given name
[SFS] Subject, Possessive first name
[SLS] Subject, Possessive last name
[SFATH] Primary name of the father of the Subject
[SMOTH] Primary name of the mother of the Subject
[SPAR] The parents of the Subject

[PL] Current Principal, Last name (i.e., surname)

[RL:rolename]: The last name of all the people assigned the given role

- Master Place List - A column for place styles has been added.

- ...plus dozens of fixes to bugs that were brought to our attention by

After eight free upgrades in v8, there is a charge for this update
($29.00 download + $5 for an optional CD by mail) so you will need to go
our web site to purchase a new unlock key and download the program:

NOTE that TMG v8 and TMG v9 can be installed and run at the same time
and the data projects are compatible (although the new sentence
variables listed above will be ignored by v8). So you can install and
get comfortable with the new features in v9 while you continue to work
in v8.

Users who purchased TMG v8 or an upgrade within the last 90 days will
receive a free update to v9.

Have fun!

I've upgraded to TMG 9 and also upgraded to the latest SS version. Both very easy upgrades to do.

One thing I noticed was that the TMG icon for version 9 is the same as version 8 which I thought might be a hassle if I swap between 8 and 9 as you can do. Just as I was thinking that, there were some messages on the TMG Mailing List that explained how to change the icon to something different. So I now have the TMG icon from version 5 pinned to my toolbar.

This is what Teresa Elliott on the TMG List wrote:
Right click on the icon. Go to properties. Click on change Icon. Browse to the .ico file you want to use. The one I used was in the %ProgramFiles% (x86)\The Master Genealogist v9\graphics\tmg5.ico

This worked for me.
