I've made a bugfix release of the hledger-web package, to fix build problems. hledger-web 0.15.1: * web: add missing Hledger.Web.Options to cabal file * web: tighten up dependencies to reduce build problems And here's another new dependency I forgot to mention: flot, the js charting library. The rest of this mail is a repeat of yesterday's announcement, since that one seriously confused google groups, gmane, and perhaps your mailreader (pro tip: don't re-edit old announcements with Mail.app's cmd-shift-d. :) -Simon Date: 2011/9/1 Subject: ANN: hledger 0.15 I'm pleased to announce hledger 0.15! This release includes work by Trygve Laugstøl, Dmitry Astapov, Clint Adams, Johann Klähn and myself. hledger is a library and set of user tools for working with financial data (or anything that can be tracked in a double-entry accounting ledger.) It is a haskell port and friendly fork of John Wiegley's Ledger. hledger provides command-line, curses and web interfaces, and aims to be a reliable, practical tool for daily use. Given a plain text file describing transactions of money or any other commodity, it will print the chart of accounts, account balances, or just the transactions you're interested in. It can also help you record new transactions, or convert CSV data from your bank. Home: http://hledger.org IRC: irc://irc.freenode.net/#ledger Install: cabal update; cabal install hledger [hledger-web hledger-vty hledger-chart hledger-interest] Platform-specific binaries, which are time-consuming to make and support, are now provided on request to financial donors - a great way to give back and help pay hosting costs! Best, -Simon Release notes for 0.15: * hledger's options are now modal, providing better help (using cmdargs) * hledger now lists and runs any hledger-* add-ons found in the user's path * case insensitivity of filter patterns has been fixed * parsing: `alias`/`end aliases` directives, for renaming accounts, are supported, like ledger's but a bit more powerful; also an `--alias` option for renaming on the fly * parsing: the `account` directive now preserves posting type (normal/virtual/balanced virtual) * parsing: the `pop` directive is supported as an alias for `end tag`, like ledger * parsing: `P` (historical price) directives can contain a (ignored) numeric time zone, like ledger * parsing: the leading `!` in directives is now optional and deprecated, like ledger * parsing: entries with a negative amount in the first posting now infer the correct balancing amount * parsing: bad date checking is more accurate * balance: collapsing of boring accounts to one line can be disabled with `--no-elide` * balance: fix a wrong precision regression from last release * convert: standard input can be converted * convert: an alternate rules file can be specified with `--rules` * convert: `account2-field` can be used when the CSV file specifies both accounts * convert: `description-field` can have a custom format and combine multiple CSV fields * convert: `in-field` and `out-field` support CSV files that use two amount columns * convert: don't fail when there's no default journal file * web: the web interface has been overhauled/cleaned up * web: account register views are now transaction-based, like gnucash etc., and show accurate historical balances when possible * web: simple balance charts are displayed (using flot) * web: more expressive and consistent search patterns, using a new matching engine * web: add form uses currently focussed account as default, redirects to itself, formats status messages better * web: sidebar now shows empty/boring accounts too * web: now uses warp and a newer yesod * api simplifications * importable Hledger, Hledger.Web, Hledger.Vty and Hledger.Chart modules * the basic reports are now provided by hledger-lib for easier reuse * new api use examples: `equity.hs`, `uniquify.hs` * some old base 3 support has been dropped * the old -s flag has been dropped Stats: Release contributors: Simon Michael, Trygve Laugstøl, Dmitry Astapov, Clint Adams, Johann Klähn 132 days, 314 commits, 18 end-user features and 6 end-user bugfixes since last release. 210 unit & functional tests and 55% unit test coverage (hledger, hledger-lib packages). 7642 lines of code (all packages).
