We're contemplating a quicker cycle time between 3.0 and 4.0; depending on progress this may be two or three years, so the 3.x schedule is laid out here for 2 years. If that works out we'll start the 3.9xx alpha/beta releases in the summer of 2019.

GnuCash 4.0 will be released 28 June 2020. Unstable releases will begin in March 2020.

Goals for 4.0

Goals for 4.0:

  • Rewrite engine to remove dependencies on GLib/GObject using C++
  • Migrate from QofQuery to SQL Query
  • Make KVP a backend implementation detail; no direct KVP access except in the backends
  • Limit use of Guile to reports and F::Q; all other main application code should be C or C++.

Schedules

GnuCash 4.0 will be released 28 June 2020. Unstable releases will begin in March 2020.
