The GnuCash development team proudly announces GnuCash 2.4.0, the latest stable release of the GnuCash Free Accounting Software. With this new release series, GnuCash can use an SQL database using SQLite3, MySQL or PostgreSQL. It runs on GNU/Linux, *BSD, Solaris, Microsoft Windows and Mac OSX.WARNING: You should uninstall any earlier GnuCash version from your system prior to installing 2.4.0.
Failing to do so may result in startup errors. In particular on Windows this may cause "Parse error: entry point not found" errors.Major changes in the 2.4.0 release include;
- In addition to the XML backend, Gnucash can now use a SQLite3, MySQL or PostgreSQL database to store the data. This is a new implementation using libdbi. It supports all features including the business features. In order to build with this, add --enable-dbi to the configure command. In addition to the libdbi-dev package for your distribution, you will also need the appropriate DBD (libdbi driver) package for sqlite3, mysql or postgresql.
- As a replacement for the current GtkHTML HTML engine used to display reports and graphs, Gnucash can use WebKit. WebKit is the engine used by Google Chrome on Windows and Safari on Apple. In order to build with this, add --with-html-engine=webkit to the configure command. You will need an appropriate webkit-dev package. On win32, you will need to download the webkit-1.1.90-win32.zip file from the source repository and put it into the downloads directory of your gnucash build area.
- Updated AqBanking on Win32.
