About "Nina Simone will allways be alive in my heart"
-----------------------------------------------------
Last 21th of April, Nina Simone died at the age of 70. She was born in
North Carolina and get glory after singing the pop song "My baby just
cares for me", but what she better did was sing blues, spirituals and
jazz. We have memorable interpretations from her: Wild is the Wind, Ne
me quitte pas (from Jaques Brel), Sinnerman, Mr Bojangles...
        She is dead, but thanks to her recordings, she will allways be
alive in our hearts!

to track bank accounts, stocks, income and expenses. It is based on
professional accounting principles to ensure balanced books and accurate
reports.
Fixes
=====
 1.8.3  - 03 May 2003
 o Updated translations: Italian, Swedish, Danish, British,
   Traditional Chinese, French, German, Tamil, Brazilian Portugese.
 o Turn off the report-total by default
 o The Euroland currency rates were inverted in the transfer dialog.
 o Chris Morgan's Baysian Matching code, to match transactions based
   on Bayesian filtering of previously matched transactions.
 o Fix a bug in the account name list when you you filtered down to no
   accounts it would ignore the filter.
 o The Account Separator option was moved to the Accounts page,
   reference correctly.
 o Fix the keypress handlers so they work properly for both the text
   entry widget and the calendar popup widget.
 o Force the cursor to the first line of a transaction split before
   disabling "double line" mode in the register.  This prevents the
   register refresh code from trying to update a cell that is no longer
   visible.
 o Fix HBCI close-on-finished checkbutton.
 o Add descriptions of new HBCI actions.
 o OpenBSD fixes by Todd T. Fries
 o New report "income vs. day of week" by Andy Wingo
 o Fix a couple strings to improve comments when owners and accounts
   are missing.  Direct the user to select them in the report options.
 o When building the "name + address" string, check if the company
   name and contact name are the same and, if so, only print one of
   them.
 o Fix the glade settings so resizing the window will properly resize
   the widgets.
 o Save the entry cells before adding an it to the invoice, otherwise
   it wont get sorted properly.
 o Add support in business code for the to-charge amount.
 o Don't ask the user in the general case when making changes to
   entries.  Generally the user should be allowed to make whatever
   changes they want without being pestered.
 o Guile-1.6 requires empty lists to be quoted.
 o Symbols are not strings in guile-1.6.
 o Fix "WeekDelta" and add TwoWeekDelta.
 o Pop up a dialog if the user tries to transfer from a non-currency
   account, and don't let them do it.
 o Evaluate the date during get_predicate() in case the user just "hit
   return" (and the auto-evaluate didn't happen).
 o Fix crash during import of investment accounts.
 o Fixes for GCC 3.3 warnings
 o Fix HBCI user messages where chip cards were confused with key
   files.
 o Adapt to latest changes in OpenHBCI CVS.
 o Applied Tomas Pospisek's patch to the transaction report.
 o Fix the description of gnc:mdi-show-progress.
 o Enable changing the "ID" for different business objects.
 o Fix the percentage calculations so we don't get GtkCritical
   warnings.
 o Disable the test-scm-query-import test, since it breaks on
   guile-1.6
 o Move currency conversion to gnc-pricedb.c
 o Improve report for stocks and funds not denominated in report
   currency.
 o QIF imports don't assume that a date of the form XXXXXXXX is always
   YYYYMMDD. Make sure a 4-digit year "makes sense"
 o Fix hbci and ofx test for handling --disable correctly.
 o Fix openhbci macro again so that it uses a C check program.
 o New gnucash-docs release (1.8.1)
