  • Bug 799092 - GnuCash 5.4 leaves background process running on exit

  • Bug 799134 - Fails to build with GCC 14 (‘find_if’ is not a member of ‘std’; did you mean ‘find’)
  • Bug 799138 - Port to new Python C config API
  • Bug 799143 - FTBFS on 32bit architectures
  • Bug 799144 - Date Completion is broken after 5.4 upgrade
  • Bug 799148 - Reliable crash when saving a modified saved report configuration
  • Bug 799150 - Can't paste text (with Ctrl+V) in Notes field in Account Tree View
  • Bug 799151 - gnc_date_get_last_mday () does not account for leap years correctly.
  • Bug 799152 - normalize_reldate_tm() does not handle dates with months greater than 11 or less than -11 correctly.
  • Bug 799156 - normalize_struct_tm() does not normalize seconds,minutes, and hours correctly.

The following fixes and improvements were not associated with bug reports:

  • Cancel the QIF import instead of inserting the default directory if the user cancels the file-selection dialog.
  • Memory leak fixes
  • Rename the scheduled transaction edit/new/delete menus to resolve a shortcut conflict.
  • Allow saving the sort column in the Since Last Run dialog
  • Ensure that Print Checks obtains for the check amount the sum of all splits in the current register account and subaccounts.
  • Ensure that report page actions are re-enabled after editing options. Some actions (Print, PDFExport, and Report Options) had been left disabled.
  • Ensure GncDateEntry always reverts to today if the user enters an invalid date string.
  • Direct cmake to find the base installed Python3 instead of the latest version installed. Reference Cmake Issue 24126, Cmake Issue 24878, and CMake merge request 8287. Note that this requires CMake 3.20 or later; users of older versions will still get the newest installed Python version.
  • CI: Run distcheck on one workflow to catch quickly instances where someone adds a file but forgets to update the distribution.
  • Primarily of interest to developers: We've added a new CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE, Asan, with two options -DLEAKS and -DODR, both of which default to OFF. This creates a non-optimized, with-symbols build with the Address Sanitizer hooks compiled in. While the primary motivation is a CI run to ensure that there aren't any memory allocation errors revealed in the test suite, this is also a useful build to use when debugging a segfault crash, many of which are caused by use-after-free errors. When building on non-Apple platforms -DLEAKS=ON will add leak detection, dumping a stack trace for the allocation of any leaked heap or free-store allocations. Similarly and on non-Apple platforms only -DODR=ON will log violations of the C++ one definition rule.
  • Also of interest to developers: A new cmake option -DCOVERAGE. When on and in a non-optimized build this will instrument the program and libraries to count usage for every source line. The option also adds three targets, lcov-initialize, lcov-collect, and lcov-generate-html. The primary motivation is to assess the completeness of tests in CI, see Coverage-HTML for the latest results. [full release notes]
