Skrooge 1.1.0 released

The Skrooge team is pleased to announce the release 1.1.0 of its popular personal finances management application

New Features

  • New type of account "Loan": transfer from/to this kind of account are considered as "expenditure" in reports
  • New function to remove useless values in unit (the curve is preserved but useless values are removed)

Unsimplified values : CAC40 daily values since 1990

Now with many old values removed, while keeping the overall aspect

  • New tag for grantlee to be able to use standard palette. Colors of the "Default" template are coming from the KDE palette now.
  • Possibility to download values of units with regular expressions.
  • Possibility to create/modify monthy template directly from skrooge
  • More details in progress bar
  • New advice to find and repair operations in groups with only one operation

Bugfix

  • bug 283683: Can not add a new operation after modifying the values on an existing one
  • bug 284220: Closed account still showing up in accounts combobox of "operations" tab
  • bug 283840: Skrooge is unable to download units for a past period, but it works for the current day ==> Better warning message
  • bug 284073: Expressions in splitted operation amount are not calculated
  • bug 283842: If I add today a past operation in a different unit than the principal, the amount calculated uses the present unit value, and not that of the specific date
  • bug 284752: Skrooge does not look for Grantlee at build time
  • bug 284843: OFX import does not work on UTF-8 encoded files
  • bug 285880: Cumulative amount of main categories don't appear
  • bug 286538: Renaming categories doesn't rename relevant search/process rules (not fixed but better error management)

    Enhancements

  • Better colors in "5 main variations" widget for dashboard
  • No more error when importing skg file with payees
  • Addition of an error message on loading of a document generated by a most recent version (example loading on a 1.2.0 document into Skrooge 1.1.0)
  • Addition of missing date for x axis on unit graph
  • Import homebank set types of accounts
  • Possibility to remove an empty account without warning
  • Better performances during migration
  • Change language of the document on open if the language of KDE has changed
  • Better affectation of payees and comments during gnucash import

I can't install it Cry

I hope you can fix it.

You just have to do:

sudo apt-get remove skrooge*

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install skrooge

Thanks miraks, I removed then I could install it! Smile

I have no other choice than to admit it that Skrooge has become the killer app on my desktop thanks to your efforts, Guillaume and Stephane. Taking this appraisal aside, I would to like to make two general suggestions:

1. Consider improving UI by incorporating some ideas sketched by J. Staniek in his attempt to improve Kexi (and other Calligra applications). I think that Skrooge could greatly benefit from contextual toolbars introduced by the idea of ribbon interface meant for Calligra apps. Current design of menus and toolbars in Skrooge (their structure, functions and placement)  is at most cumbersome for me, if not completely useless (perhaps except Pages panel). Please, take a look here:

- http://blogs.kde.org/node/4405

- http://community.kde.org/Calligra/Usability_and_UX/Common/Startup/Startu...

Perhaps you will find a new perspective there.

2. Provide a session management (e.g. open Skrooge with all recently opened tabs; save different sessions: Edition, Analysis etc.).

Someone has to be blind to not overtly admit the coherent, intelligent vision in all your work here. Thank you!

I have two questions:

1. What do you think about a new applet on the Dashboard for displaying editable finance quotes or something like "Quote of the day" with an option to upload/download edited quotes to/from GHNS server?

2. What is your current view of making arithmetical operations on values of categories (and virtual /meta/ categories) in order to compute user defined financial ratios? Do you plan to implement it?

Thanks for your time.

DL

Thanks for the nice words, they are highly appreciated Laughing

Next, regarding your suggestions:

  1. New UI style: I'd like to keep Skrooge as KDE-standard as possible. Hence, if something goes in KDE5 regarding ribbon UI or anything else, we will definitely consider it. But I'm not sure we want to implement something before there is an agreement on this. Nevertheless, you already have the ability to put all the menu under a single icon, at the right of the icon bar (a la chrome, rekonq or dolphin). Please see the release announcement for 1.0.0
  2. Session management: I like the idea, could be an overhaul of the current way to store / restore bookmarks, as well as the auto start function. Need to talk this in details with Stephane
  3. You mean Quotes as quotation (unit values), or generic financial advices that could be displayed in the dashboard ? Something more like wikipedia's "quote of the day" ?
  4. Can you please expand a little bit on these financial ratios ? I'm not sure I understand it... Let's discuss it on the forum, shall we ?

Thanks again, cheers !

Guillaume
