Between 4.5 and 4.6, the following bugfixes were accomplished:
- Bug 648335 – Display Created Transactions setting
- Add a preference for the ‘Review Created Transactions’ setting in the ‘Since Last Run’ dialog so that the default can be specified.
- Bug 743753 – Nearest in time security price selection is incorrect in reports
- Add new price source – ‘nearest before report date’ will ignore prices *after* report date.
- Bug 743999 – Deleting a digit from an existing number greater than four digits in length generates an error message.
- Because the grouping is off. Checking grouping on input is pointless so just ignore the grouping separator when parsing number input.
- Bug 753283 – Current Selection Highlight Lost After Transaction Edit in Scheduled Transaction Window
- Bug 787813 – Price change from editing a transaction not reflected in pricedb.
- Bug 794877 – Intro text of “Online Banking Setup” is outdated
- Bug 795804 – Extremely slow save
- Only update the status bar when the percentage changes by at least 1% because running the mainloop is expensive on macOS and Microsoft Windows. This speeds up all operations that run the progress bar with overly-fine resolution.
- Bug 796761 – Newline (char(10)) is inserted into the end of the string if copy & paste text from excel into the description field of transaction
- Bug 797787 – Feature request: preference setting to open new tabs adjacent to currently active tab
- tests preference; if enabled then new tab inserted after current. if disabled then new tab is at the end.
- Bug 797928 – Since last run asks for security price when no shares traded
- Bug 798093 – Changing the symbol/abbreviation of a security after the trading account was created breaks GnuCash.(Reopened)
- Bug 798133 – Gnucash crash when any custom action is entered
- Bug 798144 – Reconciliation uses different number than entered
- If a number was pasted into the balance end value with a currency symbol the number would silently fail on evaluate and cause the wrong value to be used. With previous changes to the GNCAmountEdit widget a warning symbol will indicate a validation error and prevents going forward.
- Bug 798148 – “Accounts” page Present (USD) column uses future prices
- Bug 798151 – Value entry box not tied to associated transaction in Since Last Run assistant
