+<h4>The following fixes and improvements were not associated with bug reports:</h4>
+    <li>Partially fix Bug 771095 by inserting a help button in the Since-Last-Run dialog.</a></li>
+    <li>Lock down GITHUB_TOKEN permissions on workflows.</li>
+<li>[g_option_context_get_help() returns a char* which must be freed. </li>
+<li>[assistant-stock-transaction] dividends must include stock account.</li>
+<li>Fix arch linux CI build failures.</li>
+<li>Add a help button to the financial calculator dialog.
+<li>[assistant-stock-transaction] avoid resetting txn_types unnecessarily.</li>
+<li>[assistant-stock-transaction] reorder of Pages - date before type.</li>
+<li>[import matcher] Only append description if there's something to append to, Otherwise just set the new string.</li>
+<li>[balsheet-pnl] test "lvl <= depth-limit" outside add-indented-row as a first step trying to fix bug 798502. the bug likely resides in the (if) conditional in (add-account-row).</li>
+<li>[gnc-main-window] page->window is not main_window, skip warning.</li>
+<li>[gnc-plugin-page-register] if account==NULL, skip AccountIsPriced because gnc_plugin_page_register_ui_initial_state may be called for non-account registers (eg the sx editor) and account may be null.</li>
+<li>[gnc-account-sel.c] prepend & reverse while building acct list<p>and don't use confusing double pointer </p></li>
+<li>Fix use-after-free in unable to save database dialog.</li>
+<li>[account.cpp] restore breadth-first search for 2 functions<p>gnc_account_lookup_by_name and gnc_account_lookup_by_code were searching breadth-first and accidentally changed to depth-first in 4.7.
+<li>[account.cpp] gnc_accounts_and_all_descendants converted from scm
+<li>[CI]Work around new git security measure.</li>
+<li>[balsheet-pnl] faster definition of balance lists</li>
+<li>[gnc-numeric.cpp] Reduce logging level of gnc_numeric exception message because exceptions are expected in some use cases.</li>
+<li>Redo icon handling in cmake<p>Using globs for file copying prevents cmake from discovering newly added icons. Writing rules that explicitly use lists of icons will fix this as a new icon in the sources will have to be added to the list and will force reparsing by cmake. We have to maintain the lists anyway for our dist target so there's actually no extra work involved for the devs. </p></li>
+<li>[assistant-stock-transaction] better Dr/Cr imbalance error message</li>
+<p>New API:
+    <ul>
+        <li>gnc:accounts-and-all-descendants-sorted</li>
