The GnuCash development team proudly announces GnuCash 2.2.1, the
first bug fix release in a series of stable releases of the
GnuCash Open Source Accounting Software.  GnuCash is available on
Microsoft Windows since the release of 2.2.0, and it also runs on
GNU/Linux, *BSD, Solaris and Mac OSX.

Microsoft Windows operating system there is a self-installing
setup program which includes all necessary additional libraries.

To install GnuCash on other platforms, users will need Gnome 2,
guile, and slib.  Neither the currently used swig nor the
previously used g-wrap packages are needed anymore when compiling
from tarball or when installing a binary.
