LedgerSMB has been accepted into Debian!

Robert James Clay just wrote the -users list to make the following announcement:

The 1.3.15-2 package for LedgerSMB has been accepted into Debian

testing (wheezy) by the end of this month.

LedgerSMB 1.3.17 released

This release corrects the internal server error on tax lookup issue, and it also corrects an issue that was found in file uploads. Additionally for those running the latest Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat packages, one is_zero issue was found and fixed. A number of more minor bugfixes are included as well.

LedgerSMB 1.3.16 has been released.

This release corrects a number of issues regarding international support, including an issue with UTF-8
characters not showing up properly in HTML invoices, some corrections in the aging report so that invoices are clustered by currency (with subtotals per currency), new user screen not respecting default country, and some enhancements for local tax rules support.

Please see the changelog below for more details.

Migration from App X

App X could be Microsoft Money, QuickBooks, Sage, KMyMoney, Gnucash, Grisbi and others
Source: mail list: ledger.smb.user (Chris Travers and others)

With unknown programs you need to to find out:
1) How much data can you get out?
2) What database system does it use on the back-end?
3) If you cant export data, are there other means (i.e. custom ODBC
drivers, cvs export) that can access the info?

If you can get that information, you are about 50% of the way there.
