We have received reports about some bugs in the calculation of account balances in v2.2.1 which is affecting a few users.

As a precautionary measure, the rollout of this release has been halted until we have isolated, identified and fixed any potential issues.

Apologies to all who might be affected by this bug. We hope to make a fix available soon.

Thanks for the feedback!

New +GnuCash Android v2.2.1 release rolling out now!

This release contains mainly bug fixes and tons of translation updates. More details on what's included can be found here: https://github.com/codinguser/gnucash-android/releases/tag/v2.2.1

Much appreciation to all who contributed to this release!

+GnuCash #Android v2.2.0-beta1 has just been published to the Play Store with the following major changes:
- New "Save As" dialog for exports supporting a wide range of services
- Add support for BitCoin as a commodity
- Add feature to rename books
- Regular automatic backups (with new option to specify backup location)
- Fixed: Hourly backup schedule was not executed on time
- Multiple bug fixes and improvements

As previously announced, this release supports only devices with Android KitKat and above. There are still a few things to fine-tune before this release goes final, but we wanted to have your feedback early, especially with the new backup/export "Save As..." dialog.

Thanks to all who contributed patches and translations to make this release possible, especially +Àlex Magaz Graça. Appreciation also goes to all the beta testers out there.

We're looking forward to your feedback.

A new beta of #GnuCash #Android v2.2.0-beta1 will be released soon.
This release makes it possible to export to any file sync service which supports the Storage Access Framework on Android.

One key difference: The new scheduled export system will always overwrite the previously exported file with the new export. This way, there is just one file to look for (with the name you specify), instead of the multiple files which are created currently. However, this new export mechanism won't work if you export multi-currency transactions as QIF.
Update 24.04.2017: Your QIF exports (including multi-currency export files) will now be exported compressed as zips to the location you specify in the "Save As.." dialog

Also in this release, you can now select a backup file (where regular hourly backups) will be made. This file can be either local to your device, or any service using (SAF).

Explicit Google Drive integration has been removed. This was causing too many problems as you had no control over the location of the files on Google Drive, and also sometimes multiple duplicate folders were created on Google Drive. Now all of those problems are gone. You can specify where you want the files to be saved on Google Drive, and there they will be saved.

For those with existing scheduled exports to Google Drive, they will still work. But you should consider setting up new scheduled exports using the new "Save as.." functionality.

Looking forward to your feedback on these changes.
Cheers,

* Improved: Update translations

Hello testers,
GnuCash Android v2.1.5-beta2 should be rolling out to you now.
Fixes a reported issue when working with BYN currencies.

I am especially interested how the Dropbox integration works for you.
Do you scheduled exports to Dropbox keep working seamlessly? Or do you need to re-authenticate your Dropbox account?
