The LedgerSMB development team is happy to announce the first
release of a new release branch: 1.8.0. This series features
a wide variety of new features, improvements, bug fixes and
cleanup. To name a few:

  • Support for in-database logos and images for inclusion in printed
    documents; this improves support for customized document templates
    inside docker containers
  • Authentication now uses encrypted cookies instead of HTTP Basic
    authentication which improves support for logging out and improves
    security
  • Support for OFX bank statement imports for reconciliation
  • Faster loading of the menu and GL account drop-downs
  • Fixed LedgerSMB 1.2 and 1.3 migrations as well as SQL Ledger 2.8 & 3.0
  • Fixed incorrect discount calculations for transaction dates <> 'today'
  • Fixed single-entry timecard support (which was broken since 1.4)
