Interesting. Sounds a bit like their own version of genetic communities.

I hope beta results will be soon.

Are they explain what consist ehtnic percentages improve? More smoothing? I think MH ethnic estimate already is smoothed, at least in my case.

A lot of plans. But plans from last year such as X-chromosome matching have not been executed yet.

They have been saying the ethnicity update will come soon for about a year now. Definitely not holding my breath.

I think they said earlier this year that it was coming later this year?

Very exciting news, maybe it will finally be able to contend with the other major companies.

"Small, outdated reference panels"

Yep, that explains the Scandinavian everyone gets. At least they admitted it; credit where credit is due.
I'm really hoping we'll be able to get a decent split between the Ireland/Scotland regions and England now. Ancestry doesn't currently have much competition in that area and I think they could use some.. Living DNA is taking beyond forever to come out with their update.

Hopefully sooner then later. As it is stands they possibility have the worst ancestry estimate of the major players. They do have the most interesting database of matches however IMO.

Yes they did say it was coming later in the year, but not until after announcing it "Coming Soon" in 1 blog post and at a MyHeritage event last year around this same time. They've been getting criticized about it in the MyHeritage blog posts when they failed to follow through.

I asked to My Heritage support when new beta will be ready, and I had this answer:

"In regards to your query, we are currently still in beta phase. The latest beta version 0.95, was released in May 2017.

There has not been any updates since and I do not information of any new versions being released soon."
