Several improvements have been introduced regarding presentation and search opportunities, for example, one can now search for occupation and comments and the address increase has been greatly improved. Free search means that all unconditional data can be captured, not just in the comments. Additionally, in this version, you can sort the hit list by name or date of birth. Quick search in the hit list can be done by entering the first characters. Correction feature is updated and bugs have been fixed.
