enough to be usable on a small (640x480) screen for "field use" (In the

The date panel is poped-up from the details button next to all the
Person Finder Panel
This provides a quick way of finding a particular person. This can
left visible and used as an additional navigation aid.
FTree can generate text files that can be fed into the

At the moment you need to run dot manually to covert the dot file to an image file - I will integrate it eventually..
