Don’t get carried away. It just allows you to attach a file path or URI to a transaction, the intent being that it will be some document--perhaps an image of a receipt--that is related to the transaction. The feature is in 2.6. What’s new is that there’s now a graphic indicator in the register that a transaction has an associated resource somewhere.
