  • Expose ngettext as gnc:ngettext
  • Add tooltip in import matcher window for description and memo column.
  • Put Macs back on WebKit2.

New Features

  • 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.

  • Business Document Column Widths:

    Entry column widths in Invoices, Bills, and Employee Vouchers may now be saved as defaults for each type of document.

    Two menu items are added to the View menu when a Bill, Invoice, or Voucher tab has focus:

    • Use as Default Layout for Vendor Documents
    • Reset Default Layout for Vendor Documents

    Vendor Documents is for Bills and is replaced by Customer or Employee Documents for Invoices or Vouchers respectively. The first saves the current document's column widths and makes them the default for all documents in the same type. The second menu item removes the customization and documents of that type will therafter use the computed default widths.

  • When deleting accounts the destination accounts of moved splits will be checked to ensure that they have the same commodity as the source account. If they don't you'll get a warning and the opportunity to pick another account or to carry on regardless.
  • New type-ahead search added to sequential search when selecting an account 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.

  • A new report menu supbmenu Multicolumn contains the old custom-multicolumn report and a new Dashboard report containing Account reports for expenses and income, an income-expense chart, and an account summary.
  • Support for UK VAT and Australian GST added to the Income-GST report. The reports options are changed from source accounts to source sales and purchase accounts to permit proper reporting of capital purchases. N.B.

  • Improve quickfill in the account pickers to filter the choices based on any part of the name.
  • The GnuCash widget hierarchy for CSS has been revised to be more consistent with Gtk practice. You may need to spend some time with the GtkInspector to get your custom CSS back the way you like it.

Significant Code Changes

  • The signature for qof_session_begin(), QofSession::begin(), and QofBackend::begin() are changed to use an enum SessionOpenMode instead of three booleans.
  • gnucash-bin.c has been split into 4 parts, mostly C++:
    • gnucash.cpp, the GUI executable.
    • gnucash-cli.cpp, the command-line executable.
    • gnucash-commands.cpp, implementation for the commands that can be run from the command-line.
    • gnucash-app-core.cpp, common code required by both the command line and gui programs.
    • There's also an auxiliary file, gnucash-windows-locale.c because the localization code proved resistant to compiling as C++. We're planning another auxiliary file for the MacOS localization.
  • A new mock facility for several engine classes to permit better-isolated unit testing of components that depend on those classes.
  • Register filter and sort values are saved in the book's state file (book.gcm) in the user's configdir instead of in the book.
  • QofSession no longer creates its book, instead one must create a book first and pass that to qof_session_new()/QofSession::QofSession().
  • Input Method handling in the register is moved to the GtkEntry where it belongs.
  • gnc_get_current_session() no longer creates an empty session if there isn't one already open.
  • The source directories have been rearranged and most of the loadable modules (e.g. libgncmod-engine.so) are now normal dynamic libraries (libgnc-engine.so), shorn of their gnc-module adapters. Make sure that you clean and rebuild your build directory.
  • All functions marked as deprecated in 3.x are now removed. If you have custom reports be sure to examine gnucash.trace for deprecation warnings and update your reports before trying them in GnuCash 4.0.
  • libgncmod-generic-import is now libgnc-generic-import.
  • Scheme no longer uses libgncmodule, always do (use-modules (gnucash foo))
  • Autocompletion improvements for the transfer-account field.
  • New test for invalid mappings for online accounts and a dialog to fix them.
  • jqplot is replaced by chartjs.
  • Separate most Guile binding code from the code that it wraps. It's now located in bindings/guile.
  • Improve Google test integration in cmake. CMake now requires only GTEST_ROOT and only when cmake isn't able to find Google test without help.
  • Unit tests for Scheme code with SRFI64.

    • gnucash-app-core.cpp, common code required by both the command line and gui programs.
    • There's also an auxiliary file, gnucash-windows-locale.c because the localization code proved resistant to compiling as C++. We're planning another auxiliary file for the MacOS localization.
  • A new mock facility for several engine classes to permit better-isolated unit testing of components that depend on those classes.
  • Register filter and sort values are saved in the book's state file (book.gcm) in the user's configdir instead of in the book.
  • QofSession no longer creates its book, instead one must create a book first and pass that to qof_session_new()/QofSession::QofSession().
  • Add option to save Layout for Register items

    Add two menu items under windows, one to save an existing register layout based on the register type to there respective default layouts so the user set column widths will be used when opening registers. The second menu item will reset the column widths to defaults and remove the associated default layout. Open registers will also save their column widths to the page section so these can temporarily have different widths.

  • Input Method handling in the register is moved to the GtkEntry where it belongs.
  • gnc_get_current_session() no longer creates an empty session if there isn't one already open.
  • The source directories have been rearranged and most of the loadable modules (e.g. libgncmod-engine.so) are now normal dynamic libraries (libgnc-engine.so), shorn of their gnc-module adapters. Make sure that you clean and rebuild your build directory.
  • All functions marked as deprecated in 3.x are now removed. If you have custom reports be sure to examine gnucash.trace for deprecation warnings and update your reports before trying them in GnuCash 3.905.
  • libgncmod-generic-import is now libgnc-generic-import.
  • Scheme no longer uses libgncmodule, always do (use-modules (gnucash foo))
  • Autocompletion improvements for the transfer-account field.
  • New test for invalid mappings for online accounts and a dialog to fix them.
  • jqplot is replaced by chartjs.
  • Separate most Guile binding code from the code that it wraps. It's now located in bindings/guile.
  • Improve Google test integration in cmake. CMake now requires only GTEST_ROOT and only when cmake isn't able to find Google test without help.
  • Unit tests for Scheme code with SRFI64.

Deprecations (will be removed in GnuCash 5.0

  • gnc:substring-replace-from-to

Between 3.904 and 3.905, the following bugfixes were accomplished. Some of these will also be fixed in GnuCash 3.11, some are for 4.0 only.

The following fixes and improvements were not associated with bug reports or new features:

  • Ensure balance-sheet balances do not ignore closing entries, including them in closing balances from profit&loss.
  • [balsheet-pnl] value-collector doesn't need to ignore closing

    The value-collector is only used to tally account balances for asset&liability accounts. These accounts never have closing entries. No need to test closing property.

  • [trep-engine] don't create intermediate cells object

    from cell-calculators (a list of column-info), the cells object (list of column-data) was created unnecessarily. use cell-calculators directly.

  • [gnucash-cli] --report show/list outputs to stdout

    and their error messages output to stderr

  • I18N: Improve tooltip about double-line-mode

    Suggestion by Adrien Monteleone https://lists.gnucash.org/pipermail/gnucash-user/2020-June/091425.html

  • Drop unused boost::locale::generator instantiations

    We now have one single case in gnc-locale-utils and all code uses gnc_get_boost_locale to get the proper locale.

  • Fix translations using boost::locale::translate
  • Fix report dependencies that caused Xcode build failure.
  • Update Schedule Transaction Template dialog status bar

    Copy the functions from gnc_main_window that updates the status bar with the action tooltips to gnc_window so that both GncMainWindow and GncEmbeddedWindow can use without duplicating code.

  • Add the Register width menu options to the Scheduled Transaction Template dialog.
  • [balance-sheet] hide trading-accounts if use-trading-accts? is unset
  • Fix a null parent error in the New Account Hierarchy Assistant.

About the Program

GnuCash is a free, open source accounting program released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) and available for GNU/Linux, *BSD, Solaris, MacOS, and Microsoft Windows. Programming on GnuCash began in 1997, and its first stable release was in 1998.

GnuCash 3.904 Released

The GnuCash development team announces GnuCash 3.904, the third testing release for what will soon be GnuCash 4.0.

Changes

Baseline requirements

Operating Systems:

  • Linux: Ubuntu 18.04LTS
  • MacOS: 10.13
  • Windows: 8.1

Software Dependencies:

  • C++ standard is now C++17, requires gcc 8.0 or clang 6.0.
  • Cmake 3.10
  • boost 1.67.0
  • gettext 0.19.6 for general use, 0.20 to generate gnucash.pot.
  • glib-2.0 2.56.1, gtk 3.22.30
  • googletest 1.8.0
  • ICU, any version.
  • libdbi 0.8.3
  • libxml2 2.9.4
  • swig 3.0.12 Now required for building from tarballs as well as from git.
  • Webkit 2.4.11 Mac & Win32, 2.14.1 Linux/BSD

New Features

3.903 was the feature-freeze release. However, the command-line arguments for both gnucash and gnucash-cli have been adjusted as follows:

  • --add-price-quotes is changed to --quotes get
  • --run-reports is changed to --report run --name <report name>
  • Added --report list to produce a list of available reports.
  • Added --report show --name to describe the options changed from the default values in the named report.

The intent is to have command categories with subcommands to better enable a richer command line capability as illustrated with the new report commands list and show.

  • 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
  • When deleting accounts the destination accounts of moved splits will be checked to ensure that they have the same commodity as the source account. If they don't you'll get a warning and the opportunity to pick another account or to carry on regardless.
  • New type-ahead search added to sequential search when selecting an account 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.
  • Python bindings are now localized and their strings available for translation.
  • The new reports introduced in the Experimental Reports menu are moved to the main menu and the old reports hidden; the old reports can be unhidden by running GnuCash from the commandline with the --extra argument. That will cause the old reports to appear in their regular locations on the menu labeled (legacy). Note that new reports use different options and layouts and you may need to adjust your saved report configurations.
  • A new Transaction Association dialog, available from the new Update Transaction Association item in the register context menu, provides the ability to have multiple associations for a single transaction. Associations may now be easily removed.
  • Allow Associations to be added to invoices. The actual association when present is added as a link button which is shown below the notes.
  • A symbol is now displayed on transactions in the register when they have an attachment and the selected font supports the symbol.
  • The OFX file importer can now import more than one file at a time.
  • A new report menu supbmenu Multicolumn contains the old custom-multicolumn report and a new Dashboard report containing Account reports for expenses and income, an income-expense chart, and an account summary.
  • When importing, the matcher will no longer offer to match a transaction to one that has already matched in a previous import, nor will it offer to match more than one imported transaction to a single existing transaction.
  • Support for UK VAT and Australian GST added to the Income-GST report. The reports options are changed from source accounts to source sales and purchase accounts to permit proper reporting of capital purchases. N.B. This is incompatible with previous versions of the report and will require regenerating saved configurations.
  • Add option to save Layout for Business items

    Add two menu items under windows, one to save an existing layout for Invoices, Bills and Vouchers to their respective default layouts so the user set column widths will be used. The second menu item will reset the column widths to defaults and remove the default layout. Open Business items will also save their column widths to the page section so these can temporarily have different widths.

  • The matcher window columns are changed from R to C and from U+R to U+C, reflecting that the matcher marks transactions cleared but doesn't reconcile them. (Bug 797338)
  • OFX imports having balance information will now offer to immediately reconcile, passing the balance information in the file to the reconcile info.
  • Improve quickfill in the account pickers to filter the choices based on any part of the name.
  • The GnuCash widget hierarchy for CSS has been revised to be more consistent with Gtk practice. You may need to spend some time with the GtkInspector to get your custom CSS back the way you like it.
  • When creating a new account hierarchy it's now possible to load account templates from locales other than the one set for the user interface. (Bug 797472)
  • New Account - Online Account match list to the Import Map Editor.
  • New invalid maps dialog in the Import Map Editor. (Bug 797612)
  • Optionally include the account code option in budget view.
  • Account matcher will decline to match accounts with a different commodity from the imported split if the import information includes the commodity.
  • Ellipsize the Description and Memo fields in the account matcher.
  • Enable adding notes to budgets. (Bug 693180)
  • Support for AQBanking Version 6. This is required to support new FinTS protocols and the European Privacy Directive.
  • GnuCash 4.x will not migrate old gconf settings from GnuCash 2.4.x.
  • Reversing transactions will now pop a dialog box to request a posting date. (Bug 782455)
  • The Accounts page has a new optional column for the hidden property to make it easier to toggle it. Note that in order to see hidden accounts you must still enable that in the Filter by... dialog. (Bug 797486)
  • The Customer, Vender, and Employee overviews have a process-payment toolbar. (Bug 797605).
  • Account codes may now optionally be displayed in the Budget Tree View. (Bug 797489).

New/Revised Reports

  • Income-GST
  • Owner Report

Significant Code Changes

Deprecations (will be removed in GnuCash 5.0

  • gnc:substring-replace-from-to

Between 3.902 and 3.903, the following bugfixes were accomplished. Some of these will also be fixed in GnuCash 3.11, some are for 4.0 only.

The following fixes and improvements were not associated with bug reports or new features:

  • When no file is open don't ask to save it when opening another file or quitting GnuCash.
  • Add an Invoice section to dialog-utils for when the path head changes.
  • Change the position the register pop up so it aligns better.
  • Fix the alignment of the Notes label in Transfer dialog.
  • Set the initial Split horizontal paned position to be half way when the window is realized.
  • Set the expanding column in the lot viewer to be the 'Title' and the 'Description'. Also ellipsize the description to help with long transaction descriptions.
  • Change the alignment of the numeric columns to be right aligned so the numbers line up.
  • [new-aging] speed up split->owner.
    1. split->owner will now cache results, bypassing gncOwnerGetOwnerFromLot and gncInvoiceGetInvoiceFromLot for repeated calls to the same split.
    2. Previously each call to split->owner would allocate a new gncOwner. Now a new gncOwner is only allocated during a cache miss. the list of gncOwners is maintained and is purged when split->owner is called with #f. There is no need to maintain a tofree list of gncOwners anymore.
    3. Instead of slow gncOwnerReturnGUID to test equality, use gncOwnerEqual
  • Fix crash in case filter is less than 4 parameters.
  • Change the Options GtkCheckBox to use its own built-in label and remove the label in the first column.
  • Enable the Options Checkbox label to be used to toggle values.
  • Add enum SplitRegisterTypeGroup to group registers.
  • Change state_section parameter for gnc_table_save_state.
  • Fix clang error about type mismatch GtkWidget* != void* aka gpointer.
  • HIG, I18N: Improve Budget menu entries
  • I18N: fix translator comments in window-reconcile.c
  • I18N: Fix several issuse with 'Help not found' strings.
  • [QofLog] Replace hashtable with tree of vectors: 16x speedup.
  • Make qof_log_set_file static. Used only internally.
  • Move QofLogModule typedef to qoflog.h where it belongs.
  • [balsheet-eg] don't use safe-cadr and safe-cdr

    They are safety hacks which indicate inability to deal with lists. use lists properly.

  • [balsheet-eg] reindent process-acc-list-r
  • [eguile-utilities] deprecate single-use function used only by balsheet-eg.scm
  • [balsheet-eg] use "foreign" css class correctly.
  • [eguile-gnc] don't catch errors in eguile-gnc.
  • Initially select the last account chosen in the account picker dialogs.

    Separately keeps track of last investment account, security account, and income account. One issue is that gnc_import_select_account doesn't tell the caller if it put up a dialog or found the online ID on an existing account. This means the last account may be one the user didn't manually select. This may or may not be the right thing to do.

  • Transaction matcher dialogue was not closing when changing book.
  • Correct parent widget for import new account dialog.
  • No Selection on load for Bill Terms

    Change the selection process so it selects the first entry if present on load and also selects a newly created entry when completed.

  • Change the Tax Table dialogue to be based on a GtkWindow

    When using Gnucash on Microsoft Windows and a dialog opens a further dialog when you switch away from the application and back the last dialog that has the focus is behind the parent and it appears like the application has froze. To fix this try to use only one level of dialogue so change the Tax Table to use a GtkWindow with no transient parent.

  • Align the import matcher help button

    Move the import matcher help button to the left in the CSV transaction importer.

  • Merge branch 'maint'
  • Fix LIBDBI_DRIVERS_DIR generation.
  • Use more precise strings in gnc-split-reg.c

    You can edit the account very well, but not its transactions.

  • L10N:de: "Für" klein in "Ergebnisrechnung für Periode" etc.
  • I18N: Msgmerge recent changes
  • I18N: Hotfix for bug 797725

    Add a translator comment

  • L10N:de_CH: Ein weiterer Tippfehler im Kontenrahmen KMU
  • [test-stress-options] fix combinatorics testing

    Premise: pairwise combinatorics testing is only possible when all options have at least 2 options. The "General Journal" report is unique because it starts with the Transaction Report options generator, and adds a few hidden options. Unfortunately the Transaction Report receives the "General/Stylesheet" option, with only 1 default stylesheet. The General Journal report therefore has 1 stylesheet option with only 1 choice, and is not acceptable to jenny for pairwise testing. It would fail the combinatorics testing. Adding other stylesheets did not successfully allow pairwise testing. Therefore the simplest way to test General Journal is to disable multichoice testing whereby num(choices) is only 1.

  • [Account.cpp] more xaccAccountTypeGetFundamental types
  • Fix the crash that occurs when opening a new book when the transaction-matching dialog has been opened then closed.
  • Display report zoom factor with one decimal space.
  • Fix transaction post_date being set to midnight local.
  • Respect the environment LD_LIBRARY_PATH for loading Scheme modules and tests.
  • Add a tip about announcements and other mailing lists
  • Change occurrences of gdk_display_get_default to gdk_window_get_display()
  • Remove some Gtk version checks in code
  • Remove some Gtk version checks for CSS
  • Fix libgnc-app-utils.dylib install_name_dir.

    The install location changed as part of expunging libgnc-module.
