    repository as described here. <>

To compile GnuCash from the source code by yourself, you will need Gnome

Between 2.4.6 and 2.4.7, the following bugfixes were included:

  * [20804]Bug #653056: Fix menu accelerators not working, crash on
  * [20800] Bug #646541: new invoice line items default to invoice open
    date instead of current date This commit partially reverts the
    changes in r19134 so that customer invoices and employee vouchers
    default to the current date. Vendor bills still default to the
    invoice open date.
  * [20798] Fix report reload and options change that got broken by the
    previous commit.
  * [20796] Force custom url handlers to lowercase to deal with Webkit
    1.4's case sensitivity. For more details, consult this Fedora
  * [20792] Bug #652257 - Memory leak in gnc-file.c Patch by Tim M
  * [20786] Bug #652435 - Fancy invoice export has <generic> tags in it
    preventing html validation Patch by Bert Claesen
  * [20785] Bug #652377 - XHTML 1.0 Transitional compliance for reports
    Patch by Tim M
  * [20784] Bug #632931 - Advanced Portfolio: new income column shows
    negative amount Patch by Sebastien Alborini
  * [20783] Bug #651889 - Using trading accounts, new non-expanded
    trading transaction shows inverted rates in exchange dialog When
    using trading accounts, the exchange rate dialog has a slightly
    different behavior. This patch fixes the behavior for transactions
    that are created in-line and are not expanded (single-line). It does
    not affect the expanded transactions or transactions created in the
    new transaction dialog. Patch by Mathieu De Zutter
  * [20782] Bug #651992 - Exported invoices do not render correctly in
    Firefox Patch by Bert Claesen
  * [20760]Bug #612562 - Transfer Funds dialog - 'Show Income/Expense'
    checkboxes are not working
  * [20750] Windows build: change default gtk theme to work around a
    number of problems in the Ms-Windows theme we used before.
    Particularly, this prevents the crash caused by bug #614636 and
    fixes the black notebook tabs that appeared after Phil upgraded
    webkit and many related gnome dependencies. The new default theme is
    "Nimbus" following a suggestion by Kim Wood on the mailing list.
  * [20746] Bug #652193 - Upcoming Scheduled Transactions Calendar
    Starting Month Error. Patch by Rich
  * [20745] Replace deprecated xml tag in chart of accounts templates

In 2.4.7, translations for Tamil language were updated, by AshokR from
