The Skrooge team aims at releasing version 0.6.0 on February 6th. To help us ironing any issue that may have slipped out of our attention, we encourage everyone to test our Release Candidate, available from our Download page, and to report them on bugs.kde.org.
Translators may also do their magic, as this means we are in String Freeze.
So, what's to be expected in this upcoming version ?
Hot on the wheels of our friends at KMyMoney, the Skrooge team releases a beta version of the upcoming 0.6.0 release. The goal here is, unsurprisingly, to find as much bugs as we can, and give translators a string freeze period until the final release (targeted for end of January).
When we started Skrooge, many moons ago, we decided that it would be
"a personal finances manager for KDE4, aiming at being simple and intuitive"
Now, time went by and many features have been added, and maybe the original statement has been a bit forgotten. We will spend time on refining the application usability, but for that we need your input.
To all Skrooge users and packagers : there is a bug in version 0.5.1 that will make you think all your data is lost ! Relax, it is not lost, and will be retrieved as soon as you install 0.5.2.
This is why we ask everyone with a version lower to 0.5.1 to skip this version, and go directly to version 0.5.2 released a few days ago.
Release early, release often, they say, so...
Skrooge 0.5.2 is now available. This is mainly a bugfix and performances release, but it also contains a new feature, called alarms.
Alarms are built on top of "Search & Process", and basically warn you once a condition is verified. For example, you can use this to be warned when your monthly expenses in a category exceed a certain amount. Yes, you can use it to define a basic budget overlook, but its usage may be wider than this !
