After a year of hard work on a version for the KDE4 platform, the
KMyMoney team is happy to announce the immediate availability of the
first release candidate . Unlike previous versions, this one is
recommended for general use. The feedback provided by previous beta
releases makes us confident that it is as stable and rock-solid as
previous stable versions.
Throughout this effort, our focus has been to maintain feature-parity
compared to the KDE3 stable version. We know that many of you keep
using KDE3 for the sole purpose of running KMyMoney, so we devised a
plan to produce a version for KDE4 as fast as possible and at the same
time keep the high level of quality that your financial data deserves.
If you upgrade to this new version and you notice no changes, other

Over the last 5 months, 4 beta versions were released, putting our
developers, translators, packagers, and those of you brave enough to

This release candidate is not the end, but an important milestone in
that plan. The final milestone will be the release of a final stable
version together with KDE SC 4.5 in August. After that, we'll point
our efforts to add new features and get the best out of this new
We did manage to add some new features along the way:
* Works with the latest version of AqBanking
* Runs in all operating systems supported by KDE
* Runs natively on the KDE4 platform
* The documentation is better, even if we know it still needs more work
A lot of effort has gone into finding and fixing bugs. However, we
need your feedback to make the stable release the best ever. Please
try it and let us know if you find errors, a missing feature or even
Feel free to open reports on https://bugs.kde.org and assign them to
the project called 'kmymoney4'.
At the same time, we provide a maintenance release for the stable KDE3
code. Version 1.0.5 includes fixes to bugs we found during the
development of the KDE4 version and which we simply backported. This
tarball will be available shortly.
