2016/06/15: KMyMoney goes cross platform

As a result of the development towards KDE Frameworks 5 (KF5), KMyMoney has been successfully build by the developers from a common source base on the following platforms today:

  • Linux (various distros) using GCC and CLANG
  • Mac OS X using CLANG
  • Microsoft Windows 7 using MSVC 2015.
This is very exciting news because the last versions for these platforms could not be build at all lately. The Randa Meetings 2016 was the base for this success which has been accomplished by various platform teams and the KMyMoney developers in a joint effort.

Thanks to all of you who made this happen.

2014/10/01: KMyMoney 4.7.0 released

It's been over 3 years since the last feature release is out on the street. During that time, many new features were added and many bugs were fixed. The team has decided it's time to get on the path to another stable release.

KMyMoney version 4.7.0 is now available for download. It is KMyMoney 4.8 Beta 1, only suitable for advanced users willing to help us stabilize and iron out the upcoming stable version.

Your help is important. Please download it, use it, and help us find issues to make a great release. Keep in mind that this version will still bark your dog away. Make extensive backups before using it.

Our plan is to have a stable version ready in December. You can find the schedule here.

Some of the highlights since the latest feature version are:

  • Revamped CSV import plugin
  • New Tags feature
  • Oxygen is now the default icon set
  • For OFX imports, application ID can be entered manually now
  • Many fixes in the import and online banking modules

2014/08/25: KMyMoney Live Windows installer available

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the first installer from the live build series for Windows KMyMoney version 4.6.90-cdd451fe35. A live build package is created directly from the sources in git master available at that moment.

Notes about this package:

  • it will only run on Windows 7 or newer version
  • it uses KDE 4.12.5 and Qt 4.8.6
  • it does not yet contain translations
  • GPG works with gpg4win out of the box
  • as with previous versions it does not contain the HBCI KBanking plugin because AqBanking's build system is autotools based making it hard to build using MSVC
  • the OFX import plugin is available
  • as with previous versions the Finance::Quote module will only work if you install perl (with the Finance::Quote module) separately
  • it will be periodically updated as issues are fixed

If you currently use KMyMoney on Windows there is no need to uninstall your current version since this version will install in it's own folder and will have it's own shortcut by default. Just remember, the newer version extends the stored information in the data file (like tags) so when switching back to the old version this new extra information (tags), that the old version knows nothing about, will be lost.

If you find the new version useful feel free to use it on a daily basis since it will be receiving regular updates.

2014/06/20: KMyMoney 4.6.6 released

2013/10/06: KMyMoney 4.6.4 Windows installer released

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the KMyMoney 4.6.4 standalone installer for Windows.

We highly recommend it over the previous 4.6.3 version since it's based on an improved KDE platform and a fixed version of KMyMoney. If you are happy with it you can safely remove the previous installation (make sure that you keep your data file).

2013/01/21: KMyMoney installer for Windows

We are happy to announce the release of a standalone installer for Windows of KMyMoney version 4.6.3. For a while now the latest version that was available on Windows was 4.6.2. Since we took over the packaging of the application on Windows with the help of the KDE on Windows project we will be able to provide the latest stable release once we release a source tarball.

The package contains:
KMyMoney 4.6.3 (all available languages)
KDE 4.8.5

Please note that the application is far from being thoroughly tested on this platform so please report any issues you find. We are counting on the community of KMyMoney users on Windows to fix issues that are specific to this platform. Don't forget to use the backup feature (without checking the 'mount' flag).

Please take care of these steps before trying to report a crash of the application.

Known issues of this version:

  • the local user manual is not yet available (there is an online version)
  • the Finance::Quote module will only work if you install perl (with the Finance::Quote module) separately

If you were already using version 4.6.2 on Windows you can install 4.6.3 in a different directory try it, and if you are happy with it you can safely remove the previous installation (make sure that you keep your data file).

2010/08/16: Stable release for KDE platform 4

The KMyMoney is pleased to announce the release of a stable version for KDE Platform 4. With over 15 months of development, this new version is the starting point of a new series of KMyMoney versions to leverage the stellar features offered by the KDE Platform.

Throughout this effort, our focus has been to maintain feature-parity with previous versions, maintaining and improving the high level of quality that your personal financial data deserve. This version has gone through an intensive testing, allowing us to find and fix many bugs and improve the usability of the application.

Along the way, we did manage to add some new features:

  • Better documentation
  • Works with the latest version of AqBanking
  • Improved usability of the online banking features
  • Uses KWallet to store online banking passwords
  • The consistency checks runs automatically before saving your data, it now checks for a wider range of problems, and it automatically corrects many of them.
  • Runs in all operating systems supported under KDE

For the last year, our team has been fully committed to release this version. Now, we will continue to make KMyMoney the best personal finance manager by leveraging all features provided by the KDE Platform, and also improving the integration with other applications via Alkimia, the nascent framework of the KDE Finance applications group. Expect interesting features coming your way soon!

2010/05/19: KMyMoney announces release candidate for KDE4

After a year of hard work on a version for the KDE platform 4, the KMyMoney team is happy to announce the immediate availability of the first release candidate. Unlike previous versions, this one is recommended for general use. The feedback provided by previous beta releases makes us confident that it is as stable and rock-solid as previous stable versions.

Throughout this effort, our focus has been to maintain feature-parity compared to the KDE3 stable version. We know that many of you keep using KDE3 for the sole purpose of running KMyMoney, so we devised a plan to produce a version for KDE4 as fast as possible and at the same time keep the high level of quality that your financial data deserves. If you upgrade to this new version and you notice no changes, other than some style eye-candy here and there, we can say we fulfilled our goal.

Over the last 5 months, 4 beta versions were released, putting our developers, translators, packagers, and those of you brave enough to test it, under a big stress. This has payed off, allowing us to uncover much of the strength and weakness of this new platform, and even finding bugs in the current stable version.

This release candidate is not the end, but an important milestone in that plan. The final milestone will be the release of a final stable version together with KDE SC 4.5 in August. After that, we'll point our efforts to add new features and get the best out of this new platform.

We did manage to add some new features along the way:

  • Works with the latest version of AqBanking
  • Runs in all operating systems supported by KDE
  • Runs natively on the KDE4 platform
  • The documentation is better, even if we know it still needs more work

A lot of effort has gone into finding and fixing bugs. However, we need your feedback to make the stable release the best ever. Please try it and let us know if you find errors, a missing feature or even just annoyances.

Feel free to open reports on https://bugs.kde.org and assign them to the project called 'kmymoney'.

At the same time, we provide a maintenance release for the stable KDE3 code. Version 1.0.5 includes fixes to bugs we found during the development of the KDE4 version and which we simply backported

Thank you!
