Skrooge 1.5.1 released

Blog Tags: 

The Skrooge team is pleased to announce the release 1.5.1 of its popular personal finances management application. The attentive reader will notice that there is no annoucement for version 1.5.0... This is because I was too slow to make it before Stephane published a new version Tongue Out.

This new version's highlights contains :

  • Automatic import through weboob. In spite of the [funny | questionnable | silly] (pick your choice) name and general tone, weboob is a quite interesting technology allowing to fully automate the process of downloading data from your bank, by parsing its html page. Backends are available for a few banks, but writing additional backends is actually quite easy with some python knowledge, and their community will welcome your contributions.
  • Overall performance improvement
  • Nicer line graphs

 

New features

  • New "Process Immediately" method to process immedialetly some scheduled operations
  • Multiselection for "Jump to the operation" in scheduled operation page
  • New advice to detect non alignment of comments (operation vs suboperation) for simpe operations
  • New advice to detect operations without mode
  • New option Automatic refresh/Manual refresh in advice dashboard widget
  • New advice to switch on "Manual refresh" when advice are very long to compute
  • New advice to detect too complex unit definition like this: IBM => $ => £ => € (not supported)
  • Possibility to do graphic reports with the bank as column of line

thank you guys for your work

thank you guys for your work :)

i'd love to see some love on the stocks/shares part... I don't understand how should I add some transaction I bought.. is the amount the total amount or the cost of the single share? why amount of shares is set as currency? I'd put the single share amount in amount, amount of shares the number of shares I bought (1,2,3, etc) and it should do the math for the total amount (amount*number of shares + commission + tax)=total.... now it seems it's like total=(amount of shares + commission + tax), but then the amount what's useful for? maybe it's just me, but I find hard to use the current one and on the docs there is nothing: http://docs.kde.org/development/en/extragear-office/skrooge/operations.h... .. I can't even help to write that part, as I don't understand how it's supposed to use, maybe the dev who did it has some idea :)

precise vs quantal

Salut,

 

I have 2 computers, one running precise and another one running quantal.

After updating both, I realized they don't have anymore the same skrooge version. Precise has 1.5.1 and quantal has 1.5.0beta...

you can check that here: 

https://launchpad.net/~s-mankowski/+archive/ppa?field.series_filter=quantal (you have to install and launch it to see that it's written beta ^^)

and here

https://launchpad.net/~s-mankowski/+archive/ppa?field.series_filter=precise

I guess it's a mistake because this ppa is decribed as the stable one (no beta) and the last 2 releases of ubuntu don't have the same version...

So, I guess quantal should have the 1.5.1 version?

 

And by the way, thank you so much for this great piece of software!
