The GnuCash team is pleased to announce Release Candidate 2 version 1.7.7:
"It ain't easy, livin free".

What's New in GnuCash 1.7.7?

- Scheduled Transactions:
    GnuCash now has the ability to automatically create and enter
transactions, remind
    when a transaction is due, give a choice of entering a transaction or
postponing it
    and remove an automated transaction after a certain period.
- Mortgage & Loan Repayment Druid:
    Used to setup a variable payment loan scheduled transaction.
- Small Business Accounting Features:
    GnuCash now can be used for Customer and Vendor tracking, Invoicing and
Bill Payment,
    and using different Tax and Billing Terms in a small business.
- OFX Import:
    GnuCash is the first free software application to support the Open
Financial Exchange
    protocol that many banks and financial services are moving to use. The
development of
    OFX and HBCI support has also resulted in an improved transaction
matching system that
    more accurately picks duplicate transactions.
- HBCI Support:
    GnuCash is the first free software application to support the German
Home Banking
    Computer Information protocol which includes statement download,
initiate bank
    transfers and direct debits.
- New User Manual and Help:
    A brand new user help has been written which focuses on how to do tasks
    conjunction with a Tutorial and Concepts guide that gives the user
    information on using GnuCash.
- New Multi-Currency Transaction Handling:
    GnuCash no longer requires separate currency exchange accounts to
handle multiple
    currency transfers.
- Redesigned Menu's
    The GnuCash menu's have been redesigned to conform more with the new
    Human Interface Guidelines.

Specifically updated in this version;

o Welcome to Release Candidate 2
o Give the user better feedback on exactly what the exchange rate means.
o Better handling of corrupt XML data files. Print better error messages
for unknown tags, or mismatched start/end tags.
o When checking for gtkhtml-1.1, make the lack of pkg-config a fatal error.
Also check for pkgconfig
o Updated translations, po/de.po
o Fix HBCI reparent warnings. Make the PIN dialog a bit nicer.
o Fixes to Postgresql backend.
o Changed the "ALTER TABLE table ADD COLUMN..." statements to conform to
the current Postgres implementation (and SQL 92) standard by putting the
DEFAULT modifier in a separate ALTER statement. This was reported by
Christopher B. Browne.
o Implement unpost function in invoices.
o Correctly open a help window when the initial URL contains a label
component to it.
o Make the reconciliation window respect the 'include subaccount' flag any
time it opens a register. Consolidate logic for opening a new register.
Enhance the reconciliation start window to update the ending value when
this flag is changed.
o If the amount is monetary, map the keypad decimal key to the correct
decimal character for the locale.
o Fix malformed URLs for bringing up a report options window.
o Add new option for specifying sort critera for piecharts and barcharts.
o The report title should change when the report name field is changed in
the options.
o Add a smart function for going "back" from the "load a file" page. If
there are any files loaded it returns to the "loaded files" page instead of
the initial druid page.
o Add support for i18n of price source strings.
o Add icons to gtk only windows.
o Search on NOTES add code to prevent searching on template-txn accounts so
SXes don't show up in find results.
o Create a 'file compression' option and pass the data into the backend.
This is an option in the preferences.
o Provide a simple checkbook set of accounts
o When editing an exchange rate, always change the _VALUE_ of the split,
not the amount. This has the affect of keeping the visible number the same
and changing the "other" account.
o Add a set of business accounts to the account setup
o Give a much higher importance to the date heuristics in the OFX import.
o Disable skipping transactions which already have an online id during
matching, untill a fix for the "transfer between two accounts" bug is
properly fixed.
o Large set of fixes to the build system by John H. Pierce
o Lots more bugfixes
