GnuCash 1.8.7

Application

GnuCash 1.8.7

Description

Designed to be easy to use, yet powerful and flexible, GnuCash allows you to track bank accounts, stocks, income and expenses. It is based on professional accounting principles to ensure balanced books and accurate reports.

Fixes

The GnuCash team is pleased to announce the release of stable version 1.8.7.

What's New in GnuCash 1.8.7?

  • Use <libofx/libofx.h> instead of "libofx/libofx.h" as it's not part of our system. Fixes a dependency problem in 1.8.6 release.
  • Small fix from hawkfan to get tests to work when building outside srcdir.
  • Fix a bug introduced by Matthew -- ANSI C does not allow you to declare a variable in the middle of an expression. Move the declaration to the top of the function.
  • We don't need the trailing semi-colon because the #include adds one. The double semi-colon causes build failures in some cases.

gcompris 4.0PRE1

Application

gcompris 4.0PRE1

Description

GCompris is a full featured education game for kids between 3 and 8. The game includes many different activities like teaching how to use a mouse and keybord, memory games, vector drawing, basic educational games, reading, algebra exerciser and more.

Enhancements

  • Created the fifteen board based on the libgnomecanvas demo
  • Implemented assetml which is a new way to access resource files like images and sounds. This will allow educational applications to share their content. Now gcompris rely on libassetml and assetml resource file to run.
  • Assetml is a big change, it means first that you must also install gcompris-libassetml to install and run gcompris.
  • Now some data files have to be downloaded from the ofset download page in the assetml section.
  • You can get more information on what assetml is by reading the
  • I would like to mention that the childsplay project has already implemented assetml and thus we will be abble to share our content. Childsplay is still a young project but it's a very good alternative to gcompris for those who want to be 100% python and use a very efficient drawing API like SDL. I hope other educational project will follow.
  • Thanks to Susan Rich, we now have a complete set of english voices: download it from the assetml download section

Fixes

  • Better handling of internal dialog boxes. No more lock when you hit 'esc' to quit it.
  • Fixed bug where the icon was becomming darker and darker.
  • added gtk_window_fullscreen call to support full compliant standard window manager (like xfce). Now the WManager bar should not be displayed when gcompris is in full screen
  • fixed bug and screen refresh in the canal lock activity
  • fixed end loop in case there was no .ogg to play in the gcompris/boards/music/background/ or this directory is inexistant (the default case). Note that if you create the directory {/usr/share}/gcompris/boards/music/background/ and put ogg music in it, they will be played in background while running gcompris (replace /usr/share by where you gcompris/boards installation resides)
  • removed explosion and mine in the submarine activity. Added display of the current air in the air tankers
  • fixed bug in shape type game: if the item is back to the list, it remains marked found
  • replaced the match star/tree by tuxplane/tuxhelico in the baby match activity since the tree/star has no meaning in non christian country
  • In reversecount: fixed several bugs: can no more jump over the fish can no more face impossible case (too close or too far) now tux moves ice by ice to let the kid count in his head.
  • In the simple colors activity: now text is displayed if no voice available or sounds fx are disabled
