There’s a post on the FTM Beta Sync board by the FTM 2012 development lead. He lists the following as the new features in the upcoming Family Tree Maker 2012 release:
1. TreeSync - Ability to synchronize your tree between FTM and Ancestry. 2. Blended family view - Easily show all of the children for two spouses whether they are children of one or both of them. 3. Index of Individuals Report 4. Chart improvements - Show generation labels - Add text anywhere on a chart - Option to limit descendant chart to the direct line between two people 5. Report improvements - Custom fact sentences (used in genealogy reports & Smart Stories - Automatic Smart Story generation includes primary individual, spouse, and children - Research notes report changed to "Notes Report" with options to include other types of notes
With the exception of TreeSync, there’s nothing much there; that puts a lot of pressure on the Ancestry.com synchronization feature!
