Developpers of KMyMoney (Thomas, Alvaro, Cristian), Kraft (Klaas, Thomas) and Skrooge (this humble author) have met Friday in Frankfürt, Germany, for the first KDE Finance Sprint. Arnaud, developper of Assuma (previously known as the way-too-long-a-name Association Subscribers Manager) could not make it due to real life issues.
To all testers out there willing to help the Skrooge team, we have released a beta version.
Its main purpose is to get more feedback on imports / exports that Stephane has been working on. In this beta version Skrooge is able to import and export files for :
One of the upcoming features of Skrooge is budget management. Most other financial apps out there do it pretty good, but we'd like to do even better :)
I'd like to get feedback from you on what you expect from a financial application regarding budget management. Here is our current view on it:
As previously blogged before, we've been working on KMyMoney and gnucash imports lately. These features are available from the SVN version. We're looking for people volunteering in testing these imports, so if you're interested in the KDE Finances group, give it a try and let us know if you have issues.
By the way, a big thanks to the KMyMoney team for giving us a file we can play with for our tests :)
One of the most requested feature in Skrooge is the ability to exchange data with other applications, such as KMyMoney and gnucash. We already agreed with the KMyMoney folks to work on better interoperability between our two apps. Stéphane put down the first stones of this building with gnucash and KMyMoney import and export functions.
