A new stable release of jGnash is available for download.

Upgrading is recommended.

This release of jGnash contains several enhancements and subtle fixes.
  1. I've created a new .exe launcher for Windows users.  The old Launch4j wrapper is beginning to misbehave with newer Java releases and it's simply not keeping up with the changes.  This first release of the launcher requires that JAVA_HOME be set correctly.  The user manual details the specifics.  
  2. The new launcher will also work for Linux and OSX users, but I've got more testing and packaging to work on.  For now, the jGnash script is still the best option.
  3. I've created a new List of Accounts report which allows export of the Account tree to PDF, CSV, and Excel formats.
  4. IEXCloud can now be used for Securities download.  The manual details how to configure for it.
  5. Internal cleanup to make jGnash future proof for the upcoming JavaFX 14 release.
  6. Better error handling and file encoding support for QIF and Mt940 files.
  7. Corrected a minor performance regression from several releases ago.
  8. The user manual has been updated with more specifics for installing Java on Windows.
  9. And... a few minor tweaks and fixes,

A complete list of changes is below:
