I was pretty disappointed in this for a 2.0 release. There's very few new
things, AFAIK SQL support is still broken, the printing cuts off reports when
printing direct to the printer, reports are not easily created (why they
don't use an XML based template system is beyond me), the GUI is not
intuitive at all, leaving search windows open all over the place...
I'm really hoping someone comes out with a QT-based system. KmyMoney seems ok,
if you are doing personal finances. It doesn't (and never will) do any sort
of business function.
Then there's SQL-Ledger, which is way over my head, ugly, and for some reason
having it in the browser bugs me.
I've actually been contemplating starting something, but keep thinking now
(during a major re-write of a lot of KDE's underlying systems) is a bad time.
Perhaps I'm wrong there.
