The GnuCash development team received notice about a new book published by PacktPub, UK:

GnuCash 2.4 Small Business Accounting, by Ashok Ramachandran.

This is a Beginner's Guide for managing your accounts.

Our own developer Christian Stimming has been contributing to this book as a reviewer, and we can wholeheartly recommend the outcome of this fruitful collaboration. Feel free to have a look at this book over at packtpub.com, and, best of all, the publisher has committed to allocate some percentage of the book sales back to the GnuCash project. Have fun with this book!

What's New in GnuCash 4.0

Major Highlights

[Transaction Association Dialog]

  • A new Transaction Association dialog, available from the Update Association for Transaction menu item that has replaced the two association items in 3.x, allows setting, changing, and deleting associations.
  • A symbol (paperclip for files, chain links for URLS) is now displayed in the Associations column (visible in double-line mode) in the register in place of the letters when a transaction has an association. This doesn't work on MacOS.
  • Associations may now be added to bills, credit notes, invoices, and vouchers. The actual association when present is added as a link button which is shown below the notes.

  • New type-ahead search is added to sequential search when selecting an account or an Action in the register: Instead of typing the first few characters of a top level account, the separator, the first few characters of the next level account and so on you may instead type a few characters of any part of a full account name and the drop-list will be filtered to contain only matching accounts. Once you have a small enough list you can use the arrow keys to select the account that you want.

Command-Line

A new separate executable, gnucash-cli (gnucash-cli.exe on Microsoft Windows) for doing command-line things like updating the prices in your book. gnucash-cli gains the ability to run reports from the command line. Specify reports to run by name or guid. It also provides an export format and an output file name without which it will output the report to stdout.

  • gnucash-cli --report run --name=[reportname/guid] datafile.gnucash
  • gnucash-cli --report run --name=[reportname/guid] --output-file=x.html datafile.gnucash
  • gnucash-cli --report run --name=[reportname/guid] --output-file=x.html --export-type=TYPE datafile.gnucash

gnucash-cli --help will display a screen listing all of the available commands and their options.

The GUI program, gnucash, still responds to the options it always has, though --get-price-quotes is deprecated in favor of gnucash-cli --quotes get.
