A new website, faster and more flexible valuation, more accurate close
command, tags --values, new descriptions/payees/notes/diff commands,
misc. fixes. For details, see

hi, thanks for your work.

upgrading using the bash script produces an error

```
Installing hledger
Trying stack install --install-ghc --resolver=lts-14.4 hledger-1.15.1 hledger-lib-1.15.1 --verbosity=info

}
```

there’s more after this, if useful i can append it as well.

is it just a broken link? github down?

Thanks for the report André. There seems to be a temporary download problem with lts 14.4, I have bumped hledger-install.sh down to lts-14.3. Could you fetch it again and let me know if that helps.

Are you double sure something didn't go wrong ? You shouldn't be seeing

path = "/fpco/lts-haskell/master//lts-14.4.yaml"

from the latest hledger-install.hs. In the script you should see

RESOLVER="--resolver=lts-14.3"


If you are, let's see the output of

$ bash -x hledger-install.sh


Thanks!

Issues: 
- the Overview heading still says 1.14.2
- several Builds, including the today's, say Tag 1.14.2

Docker Hub builds seem sluggish today. Docker hub still did not pull updates from github (hence 1.14.2 in the readme) and it only just built (cosmetic) changes that i pushed into 14.2 branch.

However, I pushed 1.15.1 / latest images manually, so apart from 1.14.2 in the readme I claim that dockerhub is in the good state

I believe you, but is there any way to fix it, for installers who won't know what's going on ?

PS not urgent. I'll update the version badge on the download page when Docker hub looks right. I guess that will also make this command work:

docker pull dastapov/hledger:hledger-1.15.1

tag does not include repetition of "hledger", it is just:
docker pull dastapov/hledger:1.15.1

The easiest fix is (was) to wait, looks like all the changes made it to docker hub now :)

Hi all,
First of all I have to thank every contributor of this awesome software.
Then... is there any breaking change in the latest version?
The output of
hledger is  -VB
shows some unchanged currencies while earlier versions didn't.

Following the bottom lines

1.14 is -VB
< ------------------------------------------++-----------------------
<                                           ||             41.640,83
< ==========================================
<  Net:                                     ||             -7.793,61

1.15 is -VB

> ------------------------------------------++--------------------------------------
>                                           ||  40.215,61, 1477,39 GBP, -419,61 SHA
> ==========================================++========
>  Net:                                     || -7.358,99, -1477,39 GBP, 2400,82 SHA

1.[14|15] is

+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                          ||           36.596,62, 560,00:, 44 GAS, 1477,39 GBP, 1281 KWH, 146,23 LITB, 6,03 LITD, 34,99 LITG, -419,61 SHA, 101 TICKET, 481 kwht, 219 mc, 1553 smc, 246,00 smct
==========================================++===================================================================================================================================================================
 Net:                                     || -4.734,00, -560,00:, -44 GAS, -1477,39 GBP, -1281 KWH, -146,23 LITB, -6,03 LITD, -34,99 LITG, 2400,82 SHA, -1 TICKET, -481 kwht, -219 mc, -1553 smc, -246,00 smct

Hi Diego, thanks for that,

It might be what we're investigating at https://github.com/simonmichael/hledger/issues/1083 ?

If that doesn't explain it, maybe you can show a minimal journal that reproduces it.

Incidentally, is combining -V and -B useful ? I haven't yet seen a practical use for that.

Ok,
 

Incidentally, is combining -V and -B useful ? I haven't yet seen a practical use for that.
I've been using hledger for few months so combining -V e -B is the only short way I found out to get all reports in default currency.only.
Could this output  depend on my hard customized journal file where official currencies' values, periodically updated, are stored in a separate file while unofficial currencies, which I write out to keep track of some price trends, are only in the main journal??!??

My kind regards

Actually now that I think of it. As of 1.15, -B and -V are mutually exclusive, and the rightmost wins. So -VB means -B.

As long as you have P directives allowing all commodities to be priced, in any file, -V or -X or —value should be able to convert all to one currency.

Correction. -V gives one commodity only if the relevant P declarations all lead to the same commodity. -X COMM guarantees one commodity if conversion rates can be found.
