+<h2>GnuCash 2.0.5 released</h2>
+<p>Personal and small business accounting in GNU/Linux will be easier and better
+after today's release of GnuCash 2.0.5.</p>
+<p>This release of the free, open source accounting program improves on the
+generational advances in the last version. GnuCash 2.0 is based on
+state-of-the-art gtk2 GUI technology. Developers worked hard to integrate the
+Gnome Human Interface Guidelines (HIG) for a consistent behaviour and
+look-and-feel for the whole Desktop.</p>
+<p>Major changes in this release include;
+<li>Fix some strings not being translated.</li>
+<li>Use guiles native sort and record.</li>
+<li>Adjust how payment dialog resizes.</li>
+<li>Don't abort when F::Q fails to return a quote.</li>

+<li>The New Turkish Lira changed from TRL to TRY.</li>
+<li>Fix security problem with tmp filesystem and symlink attack.</li>
+<li>Add French and Canadian French translation updates.</li>
+<li>Do not crash on delete_event in new user dialog.</li>
+<li>Add sanity checks when accessing GncPluginPage.</li>
+<li>Make new windows the same size as the active one.</li>
+<p>The GnuCash development team said these new features and changes will make
+GnuCash easier than ever for newcomers.</p>
+<p>GnuCash is the leading free, open source accounting program and the leap to gtk2
+will enable users to be able to enjoy cutting edge functionality with the
+freedom of not being locked into proprietory file formats.</p>
+<p><b>Playing With Others</b></p>
+<p>As with other leading GNU/Linux software that is designed to replace
+proprietory programs, GnuCash is a functional
+replacement for expensive accounting programs.  Like OpenOffice.org and
+The Gimp, GnuCash is also programmed to communicate and interact with as many
+existing programs, institutions and people as possible.</p>
+<p>The GnuCash development team has continued to improve file import filters,
+which allow users to import work from old programs like Microsoft Money and
+Quicken.  GnuCash can load QIF and QFX files, which are used by both of those
+<p>Developers have also continued to incorporate support for online banking into
+the program.  GnuCash 2.0 supports OFX DirectConnect which can directly
+retrieve and import account statements over the Internet.</p>
+<p>Ths release is available in 29 languages, including English,
+French, German, Spanish, Norwegian, so people from around the world will have
+no difficulty operating the program</p>
+<p><b>Off on the Right Foot</b></p>
+<p>Users of GnuCash 2.0 will notice a few changes when they start the
+program.  Improvements have been made on startup speed, scheduled
+transactions, currency support and currency quote retrievals.</p>
+<p>After they enter the program, users will find a double-ledger account
+system, exhaustive report options and account hierarchy tools.  Also at their
+disposal is a full system of tutorials and documentation.</p>
+<p><b>Getting GnuCash</b></p>
+<p>GnuCash 2.0 can be downloaded from sourceforge.net.  It is available as
+source code.</p>
+<p>To install GnuCash, users will need Gnome 2, guile, slib and
