[Kmymoney-devel] Status of online banking / call for testers

Hello all,

for a long time I am working on the online banking branch already. It is close 
to be finished even if lot still has to be done. But have a look on what is 
achieved already:

• It is possible to create, edit and send sepa credit transfers. I used 
KMyMoney for *many* sepa credit transfers already.

• You can save and edit account numbers (<- plural!) for your payees.

• Actually you should be able to create national transfers as well. But my 
banks have disabled that feature, so KMyMoney automatically deactivated it as 
well (smart, right?). So I cannot test national transfers anymore.

So it is time for a break. I hope I can continue in about a month. There are a 
couple of features missing before it can be merged into master (e.g. the 
database). So think about a 4.x release before the merge. I won't be ready 
before October anyway.

Also I need more testers before it can be released. Jos had some good points 
in his blog why I should not test alone [1].

So if YOU are interested in HBCI online banking and are willing to compile 
KMyMoney yourself, please clone the add-onlinebanking branch and test it.

Then write all glitches, issues but also ideas and any feedback to this list 
(maybe with [onlinebanking] in the subject). You can even write a todo list 
[1] for bugs, so it is easier for me to fix that stuff.

There are some design decisions to make, there I could need some help of people 
who used the online banking features already.

Please not that using online banking with a database is not possible at the 
moment! But there is some stuff on my computer regarding this already :)

Each tester helps me a lot to finish the work! Also it is very motivating to 
get feedback — very important during bug hunting.
