GnuCash 2.6.16, a bugfix release, is now in the test repository, along with a matching version of the gnucash-docs on-disk help file.

Bug 516920 - Calendar Pop up disappears of the left side.
Bug 603379 - Prevent changing some Account Options if it has transactions.

Bug 767032 - Bad invoices from importing "posted" needing currency conversion Only auto-post if the posted_to account name is valid, there's no currency conversion, or the invoice customer's currency matches the A/R account currency. Tell the user what happened with a dialog.
Bug 773945 - Select Security Dialog Not User Friendly: Add a new namespace “ALL NON-CURRENCY” to the namespace (type) selector lists on the security picker and price editor which causes the commodity list to include all non-security commodities.
Bug 776247 - PriceEditor thinks Currency XXX is an actual currency and tries to retrieve prices for it.
Bug 776380 - Gross value of bills charged back instead of net value.
Bug 776494 - Wrong menu entry in Tip of the day.
Bug 776517 - Trial Balance Report: Total Debits Issue re $0 Commodity Accounts and Price Source Mode Set to "Nearest in Time" or "Most Recent".

Bug 779217 - Transactions rounded to 5 decimal places when opening file.
Bug 779411 - jqplot fixes for piechart and syntax error.
Bug 777875 - Reports with charts are flickering in certain circumstances.
Bug 777949 - Accounts implicitly created in ledger attempt creation twice.

Some other fixes not associated with reported bugs:

Use "Billing Information" as in other biz modules.
Update local symbol for MUR.
Online banking: Add output of bank messages that might occasionally be received.
Allow only date entry for opening balances on new accounts.
Enable taxinvoice to show net price: Add gncEntryGetNetPrice. Create an option in taxinvoice to either use gncEntryGetNetPrice or gncEntryGetPrice.
Make SQL full-DB sync safer and clean up automatically if it's interrupted by a system or network failure.
Extend account color to all columns in the account hierarchy page.
Localize the word “CURRENCY” used in the commodity namespace selectors.

GnuCash 2.6.17 has landed in the test repository.


Between 2.6.16 and 2.6.17, the following bugfixes were accomplished:

Bug 603379 - Prevent changing some Account Options if it has transactions Relax the account type change restrictions. In the new implementation account types can't be changed for an account with splits:
if the change woud force a commodity change e.g. from type STOCK to BANK as the former takes only non-currency commodities and the latter only currency.
for immutable accounts
At the time of this commit the following account types are considered immutable:
Accounts Receivable
Accounts Payable
Trading accounts
Bug 776396 - Foreign currency reports, amounts are not aligned correctly Improve the styling of the table element used for foreign currencies in the Balance sheet report so they end up aligned with the other currencies.
Bug 780845 - link in github repo README file needs correction/editing
Bug 780889 - Split-register transactions result in invalid price:type "transaction" Add 'transaction' to the schema and document it in gnc-pricedb.h.
Bug 781476 - Online Banking Wizard Crashes for Windows (gnucash-on-windows)
Bug 781634 - Alert on missing account currency when opening account Also separate translatable commodity namespace strings from those used in storage: There is now a separate GNC_COMMODITY_NS_ISO_GUI label to be used everywhere the user needs to read 'Currency namespace'. It's currently set to 'Currencies' and can be translated.
Bug 782274 - Transactions produced by Transfer Funds or Process Payment dialogs sort to beginning of day and do not honor NUM field for custom sorting.
Bug 782897 - Stock Split Assistant crashes GnuCash if you enter a New Price and that already exists in the Price DB
Bug 783095 - gnucash-2.6.16 segfaults on startup
Bug 784317 - typo in 'import customers or vendors from text file' dialog

Some other fixes not associated with reported bugs:

Fix crash on Mac when trying to create or edit an AQBanking User. (gnucash-on-osx)
Properly define the template namespace rather than using a local string everywhere
Correctly store time64 0 in the SQL backend: The SQL backend ignored time64 0 when saving dates. time64 is a perfectly valid timestamp (1970-01-01 00:00:00) and should be stored.
Clamp time64 values passed to GDateTime functions to the valid range. Fixes a bug reported on the mailing list wherein a date of 0000-00-00 in a MySql database would crash GnuCash. Such dates may come from a bad conversion of 1970-01-01 or from a crash.
Add XSU to iso-4217-currencies
Some banks include additional purpose information for a transaction in non-swift-section 17 (aka transaction text). If available, this transaction text is put in front of the other purpose texts to provide full transaction information. Adds a preference to control import behaivour of transaction text.
