What's new in version 8.6

*Drumroll please...

Introducing a brand new way to navigate your tree!

• You can now expand your tree as far as you would like.

• We added a new "card" system to give you more direct options to navigate and work on your trees.

• Landscape mode now works on your phone. Work on a much wider canvas, especially in Pedigree View and when viewing records.

Thanks for being part of the Ancestry family!
