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

  • Added a BETA Stock Transaction Assistant to help create a variety of securities transactions. To try it out start GnuCash with the –extra option, open a stock-type registry, and select Actions>Stock Assistant. Please note any issues on Bug 798004
  • Remove the hard-coded default namespaces”AMEX”, “NASDAQ”, “NYSE”, “EUREX”, and “FUND” from the New Security dialog. These namespaces were added to the list of existing namespaces; it was necessary to create a commodity that used one of them to make that one an actual namespace, so users who have commodities in eg the namespace NYSE will still see that namespace in the selection list. Reasoning: The list was necessarily incomplete and confused new users.
  • Fixed the Income Statement report table formating so that all sections get laid out to the same width.
  • [Python Bindings]Implement some comparison and arithmetic operators for GncNumeric
  • Budgets are sensitive to readonly status
    Disable some budget features if book is readonly
  • Fix suppression of “cut split/transaction” warnings for the current session
    These were not working because they were missing from the temporary warnings settings schema. The warnings could only be dismissed permanently. Add them to the temporary warnings section of the settings schema.
  • Currencies in several locations not displayed correctly for Hebrew
  • [category-barchart] Added option to show ratios
  • [html-chart] Add format style option for numbers
  • Better becoming for tax table changed info message.
  • [register] Checkbox any value other than 0x20 (ASCII space) is true.
    Because it can be X or U+2716 now and could be something else in future. Fixes in particular the disappearing tax-included and tax-table in the Invoice/Bill entry register.
  • [Python Bindings]Provide the complete set of QOF enums in gnucash
  • [Pyton Bindings]Provide wrapper for qof numeric predicate
    Python bindings already have some wrapping objects for qof predicates. This adds the one missing for GncNumeric comparisons. Additionally fixes a wrong number for QOF_NUMERIC_MATCH_ANY in example file.
  • Remove commodity-table.scm, no longer required after adjusting qif-dialog-utils
  • Preferences, Import: UPDATE AND RECONCILE should be UPDATE AND CLEAR on preference “Enable update match action” tooltip text.
  • [register] Enable horizontal scrolling with a touchpad.
  • [business]Add diagnostic messages to GncEntry and GncInvoice.
  • Replace code style guidance with reference to the wiki Coding Standard page.
  • Update Form/Schedule line references for 2021 for the US Income Tax Report
  • Update the register help label when cell read only
  • Change AR/AP Type cell to be read only. The Type cell in AR/AP registers should not be changeable from the register so make the cell read only.
  • Tip-of-the-Day, new tip: the full file path is shown in the status bar.
  • [assistant-qif-import] Prevent ambiguous mnemonic
    Mnemonic N clashes with GtkAssistant “Next”. Change to D which does not clash.
