If you’re more of the video-loving type:
We made a whole ton of fixes, some small improvements, and managed to get in two fairly cool features.
Budget Row Highlighting
Let’s face it, eyes grow tired of tracking along lines. Now, when you hover over a row on the Budget, we highlight the row. It makes it easier on the eyes to connect balances to their categories. It was a nice touch, and I’m glad it’s there.
Filter Out Reconciled Transactions
There’s now a little filter toggle next to the ‘Dates’ filter with each account register. You can hide your reconciled transactions so that what you see is truly all you need to worry about. This cleans up the register for each of your accounts tremendously. Used it last night with our budgeting and I love it.
(On that note, check out the search feature, where you can type ‘Is:’ and see a whole budget of true/false searches to run, ‘cleared and reconciled, only unreconciled, only reconciled, etc.)
Campaigning for Updates
I’m going to try and do better about making these improvements known. Our standard procedure for the past five years is to release major upgrades every once in a while (for which we charge) and then, in the meantime, issue minor free updates that often have very cool features in them (not just bug fixes!). So this is one of those free updates. There are more to come!
Ian’s currently working on squashing a performance bug mainly related to some Windows software called ‘Webroot’ that is making YNAB c.r.a.w.l. It’s his highest priority.
Taylor (just hopped off the phone with him) is profiling the Budget screen at the moment. For you non-software cool people, that just means he’s trying to make it faster; faster loading, faster interacting, etc.
Word Of Mouth
Thank you all for spreading the word about YNAB! We really appreciate the vote of confidence you’ve given us, when telling your friends and family about YNAB. We’ll continue doing our best to earn your kind words.
