The writ of certiorari was granted in this case to review the ruling of the Court of Appeals which *819 held that the motion to dismiss the appeal in that court on the ground that the transcript was not filed within thirty days of the filing of the notice of appeal as required by Code Ann. § 6-806 (Ga. L. 1965, pp. 18, 26) or within any extension of time obtained under Code Ann. § 6-804 (Ga. L. 1965, pp. 18, 21) was without merit in view of the 1968 addition of Paragraph (d) to Section 13 of the Appellate Practice Act of 1965 (Ga. L. 1968, pp. 1072, 1073, Sec. 2; Code Ann. § 6-809 (d)). D. G. Machinery & Gage Co. v. Hardy, 118 Ga. App. 45 (1) (162 SE2d 852).
