Thanks, I'll fix the typo.

I'm getting 2.7.8 wrapped up right now and I'm going to declare it a release candidate. Unless something earth-shaking comes out in the next few days we'll release 3.0 next weekend. We'd really like to get it into LTS 18.04 too. It's too bad that it will be a dot-zero release, though. There are still people reporting (fixed) problems with 2.6.1 on LTS 14.04 because Ubuntu doesn't push GnuCash updates.
