Gnucash 1.8 proposed schedule (and HBCI status)
Wed, 25 Sep 2002 09:56:37 +0100

I know that this has been asked for before, but does anyone know when
recurring transactions will be ready? I believe that someone is already
working on that feature?

Here's an updated HBCI planned-feature list, since I managed to get quite
some stuff working. Note that I still can't recommend the HBCI subsystem
for widespread testing, since it is quite likely to contains heaps of bugs,
and it also requires frequent updates of your openhbci installation.
Interested users should still wait until the official announcement of the
feature freeze.

- finish Setup druid (2h)
- finish Balance retrieval with account reconcile (2h)
- finish transaction invocation at bank (2h)
- add hbci job queueing, so that several transactions can be sent in one
connection (8h)
- add transaction retrieval, and sync that with generic transaction import

Given my current spare time, I think I'll finish these features until Oct
6. What do other people think about their planned features and how long it
will take to complete them? Of course we could always come up with more
features :-) , but for a new stable release we need to decide what goes in
now and what goes in later.

How about the following schedule for a stable release *now*:

Oct 13 Feature freeze, release 1.7.1-alpha

Oct 27 Total feature freeze, initial string freeze + initial translation
work, release 1.7.2-alpha

Nov 10 Deep freeze = only bugfixes, String freeze, call for translations,
release 1.7.3-beta

Nov 24 still Deep+string freeze, only reviewed bugfixes, release 1.7.4-beta

Dec 8 Release 1.8.0, or if needed another 1.7.5 release and 1.8.0 on Dec 22

Of course the alpha/beta release numbering scheme is up for discussion, as
is the whole schedule. What do people think?
