Tana Pedersen mentioned the release date of the Family Tree Maker for Mac upgrade in an Ancestry.com blog post about the arrival of Family Tree Maker 2012. She wrote:
For those of you interested in Family Tree Maker for Mac, a new version with TreeSync capability is slated to be released by the end of 2011.
Note that it’s not being called Family Tree Maker 2012 for Mac. This isn’t surprising given the Pc/Mac feature inequality news from Duff Wilson, the Family Tree Maker Product Manager.
In response to a comment on the same post Tana wrote:
Family Tree Maker for Mac with TreeSync is currently in testing and is slated to be released before the end of the year. If you purchased Family Tree Maker for Mac last year and registered your product, you should get an email with an upgrade discount so keep checking your inbox.
This release date contradicts timing information I had from the ancestor Affiliate Manager. I think Tana’s information is more likely to be correct.
Take your time, Ancestry; I want it to be right not rushed.
