    In the import of Customer/Vendor or Bill/Invoice, the dialog that lists rows that were not imported shows a scrollable view of only four rows.
  • Bug 797572 – Customer Report (beta): “Period Totals” includes total debit and credits outside the current period.

The online id is removed from the GnuCash account if it is no longer matched with an AqBanking account.
  • Bug 797636 – Incorrect Online account matches cannot be deleted
    A push button with text “Delete selected matches” is added to the “Match Online accounts with GnuCash accounts” page of the “Online Banking Setup” tool. Additionally, the underlying tree view is set to multiple selection mode from single selection mode. Pushing the button will remove the matched GnuCash account from all selected AqBanking (Online) accounts.
  • Bug 797638 – SIGSEGV editing transaction after closing Find Accounts dialog.
  • Bug 797640 – The Reconciliation Window starting balance calculator needs to ignore splits after statement date
  • Bug 797648 – Cannot reconcile both splits of a transaction with 2 splits for bank account subaccounts if only 1 is cleared
    Force all splits in a transaction for the account being reconciled (and its children), to have the same reconciliation status. This fixes a problem when the splits have different statuses.
  • Bug 797656 – Immediate crash when retrieving quotes

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

  • [report-utilities] fix gnc:account-accumulate-at-dates sorting & operator. This commit performs 2 important fixes:
  • The account splitlist walking assumes that the split->date always increases. This is now enforced by sorting the splitlist, *only* if a custom split->date is offered. By default the splits are sorted by posted_date, and if a custom split->date is used, will be stable-sorted to ensure the algorithm works.
  • The handling of splits *ON* date boundaries is fixed. Previously if a split->date was equal to a date boundary, it would be considered part of the “after” date section. It is more intuitive that a date boundary includes all splits on and before the date.
  • When selecting a file for OFX import, restrict the files listed to .OFX (or .QFX)
  • Fix crash when changing account separator.
  • Change the default focus to search entry for ‘Find Account’
  • Fix rounding precision when importing prices from CSV
  • [trep-engine] subtotals when cells have monetary only
    Instead of accumulating subtotals from any non-#f value, ensure value is a gnc-monetary before accumulating subtotals. This paves the way to allow non-monetary in RHS custom-calculated-cells.
  • Travis – don’t try to copy the removed after-failure file to the test container
  • Travis – use ctest built-in feature to verbosely log test failures
  • Fix tokenize_string()to prevent empty strings as Bayes account-matching tokens and remove duplicated tokens.
  • Fix calculation of Bayes account-matching token info to find exactly matching tokens only.
  • Clear online banking KVP from accounts no longer associated with an online one
  • Account template improvements for Swiss-German KMU and Germany SKR04.
  • Appdata file allows packagers to include distribution release information.
  • Ensure that new budgets are saved instead of saving only the state information.
  • Update US Income Tax information for 2019.
  • Correct double-counting of accounts in some cases in US Income Tax Report.
  • Housekeeping – reduce the number of PACKAGE and VERSION related cmake variables
  • Restrict gnucash.pot comment collection to ones beginning with “Translators”.
    At the recommendation of the Translation Project coordinator.
  • [html-table][API] html-table can have multirow-col-headers
    • NEW API: gnc:html-table-multirow-col-headers and gnc:html-table-set-multirow-col-headers! gnc:html-table col-headers have been augmented to support list of rows.
    • BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY is offered. Old use of single-row headers API gnc:html-table-col-headers and gnc:html-table-set-col-headers! should be unchanged; will get/set a single row of elements.
    • NEW functions gnc:html-table-multirow-col-headers and gnc:html-table-set-multirow-col-headers! will get/set an arbitrary number of rows of elements.
    • using old API gnc:html-table-col-headers on a table, whose multiple row headers have been set, will lead to a warning and return the first row only.
  • We have revised translations for Croatian, German, Polsih, and Ukrainian
