The GnuCash development team announces GnuCash 3.10, the eleventh release of the 3.x stable release series.

This is a snap release to reverse the changes to the reconcile window's filtering reconciled transactions with a reconcile date after the current statement date when computing the starting balance. It seems that many users' books have accounts with reconcile dates in the future that were suddenly filtered out, creating an incorrect starting balance and making it impossible to reconcile the book.

Between 3.9 and 3.10, the following bugfixes were accomplished:

    Bug 620848 - Transfer Funds window - add Notes field
    Bug 797006 - Balance is misleading in open subaccounts when different currencies are involved
    Bug 797318 - Amounts ending in zero displayed as fractions
    Bug 797666 - libgnucash/engine/test/test-recurrence.c: In function 'check_valid': 'result' may be used uninitialized
    Bug 797676 - Register displays amount in transaction currency instead of register currency.
    Bug 797674 - 3.9: "test-gnc-path-util" failed on Debian amd64

The following fixes and improvements were not associated with bug reports:

    Update latest translation from the Translation project.
    [window-reconcile] when reconciling, warn on splits having a reconcile date > statement_date
    [window-reconcile] when inputing statement_date, warn if it's after today
    [find-transactions] add search for reconciled date
    Show transaction value, not amount, for registers with subaccounts.

    If the register has subaccounts in different currencies and a transaction has splits in more than one, the transaction will incorrectly appear to be unbalanced if we total amounts because the balancing logic works on split values.
    Add instance argument to Session constructor

    Enables a python console to connect to the running GnuCash's session.
    Make python console less noisy without --debug.
    Provide locals and globals of calling context to the python console's shell on shell init
    Merge Jean Laroche's '797006_subaccounts' into maint.
    Add check to display warning dialog for mismatched commodities
    Replicate changes in *2 files
    Apply astyle to modified files
    Merge Chris Mayo's iPython-fixes into maint.
    Make pycons/ compatible with Python 3 and current IPython
    [eguile-utilities] Prevent crash in balsheet-eg.scm
    [eguile] escape-html -> gnc:html-string-sanitize
    [qif-to-gnc] Properly mark intra-QIF internal transfers.

We have a revised Ukrainian translation.
