+<b>Announcement:</b> GnuCash 2.4.6 Release
+<h2>GnuCash 2.4.6 released</h2>
+<p>The GnuCash development team proudly announces GnuCash 2.4.6, the sixth bug fix release in a series of stable of the GnuCash Free Accounting Software. With this release series, GnuCash can use an SQL database using SQLite3, MySQL or PostgreSQL. It runs on GNU/Linux, *BSD, Solaris, Microsoft Windows and Mac OSX.</p>
+<h3>Getting GnuCash for Windows (Win32 binary)</h3>
+<p>The <a href="http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/gnucash/gnucash-2.4.6-setup.exe">Gnucash 2.4.6 Win32 setup executable</a> can be downloaded from Sourceforge. It will install everything needed to run GnuCash.
+<h3>Mac OSX binary</h3>
+<p>The <a href="http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/gnucash/Gnucash-Intel-2.4.6.dmg">Gnucash 2.4.6 MacOSX package</a> can be downloaded from Sourceforge as well.
+<h3>Getting GnuCash as source code</h3>
+<p>If you want to compile GnuCash 2.4.6 for yourself, the source code can be downloaded from:
+<li>Sourceforge: <a href="http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/gnucash/gnucash-2.4.6.tar.bz2">bzip2</a>, <a href="http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/gnucash/gnucash-2.4.6.tar.gz">gzip</a>, <a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnucash/files/gnucash%20(stable)/2.4.6/">all files</a>.</li>
+<li>You can also checkout the sources directly from the subversion repository as <a href="http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Subversion">described here.</a></li>
+<p>To compile GnuCash from the source code by yourself, you will need Gnome 2, guile, slib. In addition you will need swig if compiling from subversion.</p>
+<p>Between 2.4.5 and 2.4.6, the following bugfixes were included:</p>
+<li>Preserve selection around the call to gtk_editable_set_position.
+This lets us drop the racy gnucash_sheet_select_data_cb, which fixes
+problems with lost input.</li>
+<li>Add a gnc_quartz_set_menu call to main_window_new() so that newly
+created windows get their menus on the mac menu.</li>
+<li>Fix up the Mac shutdown process to give Gnucash a chance to clean up without spewing critical errors about the main loop already running (because of calling gnc_shutdown in an event handler).</li>
+<li>Bug #650241: Fix style for aging table in owner reports that has changed (after defining doctype)
+Prevent inheriting the parent tablestyle for aging table in owner-report.</li>
+<li>Bug #650757: Fix Easy &amp; footer styles output wrong tags &lt;/btd&gt; iso &lt;/b&gt;&lt;/td&gt; preventing HTML 4.01 Transitional validation
+This patch removes the wrong &lt;/btd&gt; tags and closes the center tag in the
+footer and easy stylesheets.
+<li>Bug #645221: Patch to show the headline as an h3 across all stylesheets
+The attached patch makes sure that the title fonts set through the options menu
+behaves consistently across all style sheets.
+<li>Bug #620123: Patch to make account name a header cell, iso td in trial-balance</li>
+<li>Bug #648554: SQL backend doesn't correctly save taxable flag on bills.
+<li>Bug #650163: Fix Technicolor style that outputs wrong tags &lt;btd&gt; instead of &lt;b&gt;&lt;td&gt;
+<li>Bug #650139: Fix missing doctype preventing HTML 4.01 transitional validation
+Exported reports lack a document type, preventing HTML validation.
+When exporting this may lead browsers to incorrectly read the reports generated
+by GnuCash.
+<li>Bug #650138: Style plain: Fix incorrect &lt;p&gt; tag around &lt;h3&gt; preventing HTML 4.01 transitional validation
+<li>Bug #649992: Let owner-report aging table include due date / post date options in aging.
+The attached patch patches the owner report to:
+*Allow a choice between the use of Due Date and Date Posted
+*Report with the current bucket</li>
+<li>Bug #649608: Skip non-enabled Scheduled Transactions for Future Txn report</li>
+<li>Update Slovak translation, copied from the Translation Project.</li>
+<li>Bug #646729: Create the lockfile with at least read write user permissions
+<li>Bug #647945: Add sanity check to hopefully fix crash when running custom reports </li>
+<li>Bug #644897: Correctly link in libgncmod-report-gnome.la to avoid linking against an installed version.</li>
+<li>Bug #646268: Fix missing GWEN_SYNCIO initialization.</li>
+<li>Bug #644762: Deprecated __new__() call in function_class.py</li>
+<li>Bug #647360: Invoice entries in expense voucher are created in old voucher, not in new one.
+It worked fine for customer invoices, and vendor bills, but not
+expense vouchers, where the feature was broken all along.</li>
+<li>Bug #647242: Fix broken averaging for quarter or half-year step size
+<li>Bug #647316: Fix crash when deleting custom report if no backup file existed.
+Before deleting the backup file by (delete-file), it must be checked
+whether the to-be-deleted file exists, otherwise the guile procedure
+will crash.</li>
+<li>Fix warning about NULL guid_list in xaccQueryAddAccountGUIDMatch, which caused some total amounts in reports to disappear.
+Apparently gnc:account-get-trans-type-splits-interval didn't watch out
+for empty lists of accounts, and the resulting split list somehow
+was bogus. Now that we check for empty account list, all is fine again.
+This was broken for some months by now, maybe since r20404?</li>
+<li>Bug #628342 - Quick open on File menu deleted if failed</li>
+<li>Bug #629156 Recently Used Filenames incorrectly displayed</li>
+<p>In 2.4.6, translations for Japanese language were updated.</p>
