Great, thanks! That was what I was planning to do today, so it moves me up to merging in my mingw64 branch and converting the mingw64 branch of gnucash-on-windows to Gtk3.

That blocks windows nightlies so I had it in mind that we’d hold off on merging into the official master until then. OTOH we really shouldn’t do any further work on the gtk2 master, it will just make more work later.

As for AQBanking, I thought I’d gotten that fixed in the distcheck merge commit. One does have to turn it on explicitly when building with Cmake.
