I would like to ask all Windows users who wish to improve the quality
of KMyMoney on Windows to try the first installer of the "live build"
series [1] and report any issues that you might encounter.

As you may know the development team decided a release schedule [2].
There is still about a month until the next release will be out which
gives us enough time to iron out any glitches the installer might

It's also a good opportunity to take a look at the new features that
were added (the most interesting should be transaction tags).

Notes about this package:
- it will only run on Windows 7 or newer version
- it uses KDE 4.12.5 and Qt 4.8.6
- it does not yet contain translations
- GPG works with gpg4win out of the box (this [3] workaround is not
longer needed)
- as with previous versions it does not contain the HBCI KBanking
plugin because AqBanking's [4] build system is autotools based making
it hard to build using MSVC
- the OFX import plugin is available
- as with previous versions the Finance::Quote module will only work
if you install perl (with the Finance::Quote module) separately
- it will be periodically updated as issues are fixed

If you currently use KMyMoney on Windows there is no need to uninstall
your current version since this version will install in it's own
folder and will have it's own shortcut by default. Just remember, the
newer version extends the stored information in the data file (like
tags) so when switching back to the old version this new extra
information (tags), that the old version knows nothing about, will be

Make sure that you backup your data file (make a copy of it somewhere)
more often while using this version (just in case). I actually expect
this package to be better then the last one (4.6.4) but after all this
is a call for testing.

I have tested the installer on Windows 7 32bits so feedback using
newer versions would be welcomed.
