How to Install GnuCash 2.6.17 on Ubuntu 16.04, 17.04

    GnuCash is personal and small-business financial-accounting software, freely licensed under the GNU GPL and available for GNU/Linux, BSD, Solaris, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows.

     Designed to be easy to use, yet powerful and flexible, GnuCash allows you to track bank accounts, stocks, income and expenses. As quick and intuitive to use as a checkbook register, it is based on professional accounting principles to ensure balanced books and accurate reports.

The GnuCash development team announces GnuCash 2.6.17, the sixteenth maintenance release in the 2.6-stable series.

GnuCash 2.6.17 Changelog:

Between 2.6.16 and 2.6.17, the following bugfixes were accomplished:
Some other fixes not associated with reported bugs:
  • Fix crash on Mac when trying to create or edit an AQBanking User. (gnucash-on-osx)
  • Properly define the template namespace rather than using a local string everywhere
  • Correctly store time64 0 in the SQL backend: The SQL backend ignored time64 0 when saving dates. time64 is a perfectly valid timestamp (1970-01-01 00:00:00) and should be stored.
  • Clamp time64 values passed to GDateTime functions to the valid range. Fixes a bug reported on the mailing list wherein a date of 0000-00-00 in a MySql database would crash GnuCash. Such dates may come from a bad conversion of 1970-01-01 or from a crash.
  • Add XSU to iso-4217-currencies
  • Some banks include additional purpose information for a transaction in non-swift-section 17 (aka transaction text). If available, this transaction text is put in front of the other purpose texts to provide full transaction information. Adds a preference to control import behaivour of transaction text.
Translation Updates: Arabic, Japanese, Serbian, Spanish, Turkish
