Features of small businesses (such as invoicing) are definitely in our
plans for GnuCash, but they are not in the present version, nor will
they be in the next. The next version will hopefully round out the
list of personal features, and then we will start working on some
small business features.

In the meantime, I'm not aware of any open source solutions to this.
I know there is, but I'm not sure that they're
far enough along for you.
