After almost a year and a half since its last release, a double-entry version of the KMyMoney personal finance management software for KDE is now available. Version 0.6 supports multiple account types, including credit cards, cash, savings, loans and mortgages.
An easy-to use GUI allows entering and viewing your financial data. Adjustable homepage can be customized and wizards guide the user through more complicated transactions. Transactions can be entered in an easy-to-use checkbook type form, or edited directly in the register. Recurring transactions can be scheduled and transactions can be split to multiple categories and accounts. All transactions can be listed for a given payee. We have also implemented powerful search functions to find transactions.
While older versions saved data in a binary data format, Version 0.6 writes its data in a compressed XML format, which makes it easy to preserve and store financial data. Also, the software supports the import and export of QIF files, allowing users to move data to/from external sources. Users can customize the QIF profile, to be able to import files which may not be standard, without making any code changes.
At the moment translations for French, German and Russian are available.
Additional features being considered for future releases include multiple currency support, investment account support, financial report generation, OFX support, online stock quote updates, HBCI, and a GnuCash import function. Please feel free to see more details on the project web-site. Some of these functions are already available in our current CVS repository.
