Getting GnuCash as source code

downloaded from:


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.


Between 2.4.9 and 2.4.10, the following bugfixes were included:

    Win32 installer: always remove previously installed versions. This avoids 
problems when libraries or reports have been moved around in newer versions.
    [Bug #667900] no clipboard editing in Release 2.4.9 Update Gtk+ to 2.24.8 
for Windows, to pick up da756d51 (win32: fix gdk clipboard).
    Turn on AQBAnking 5 in 2.4 branch.
    Win32: Restore default gtk theme to MS-Windows Our problems with this 
theme have been resolved in gtk+ 2.24.8
    [Bug 666849] Non-privileged user first run trouble The problem is that the 
first run was creating the slib catalog. This introduces a script to do that 
as part of installation, guaranteed to be run as an admin user.
    Update xml file backend to recognize a newer version file on load attempt, 
not load, and alert user of need to upgrade Gnucash.
    Reports: Make report Budget Flow 100% translatable
    Update txf.scm in stable branch to reflect changes to US Income Tax Forms 
and Schedules for 2011.
    [r21867]Reverse the test for HAVE_DBI ac_cv_header_dbi_dbi_h is set only 
if want_dbi is true, so testing for != no succeeds if dbi isn't enabled -- 
which is not what we want.
    [21860]Bug #667417 - Fix build with glib 2.31.x Patch by Vincent Untz
    [21840] Add dependency on qofbook.h for swig generated file. Otherwise the 
old generated file complains about a missing declaration from r21832.

In 2.4.10, the following languages had their translations updated: Lithuanian, 
Finnish, German.
