Dear developers, the German online banking users have received notice from their banks that due to EU regulations, from mid-September onwards (Sept 14th) the banking client software has to use a registered product key, otherwise the bank server connection will be refused.
(In German: https://www.hbci-zka.de/register/prod_register.htm ) For gnucash, I have registered and received such a product key, and in the communication to me there haven't been any restrictions that would pose problems for open source software. Hence, as long as gnucash will stick to this procedure and send the product key, the users (and we) should be fine. However, as our banking library aqbanking only recently introduced the necessary API for this, it was not before July 7th that this code has been introduced into gnucash, which means our last stable version gnucash-3.6 does not yet contain this. My question is: Can we schedule the 3.7 release somewhat earlier than our normal 3-month schedule, so that this release is available before the bank server change in mid-September? Normal schedule for 3.7 is End of September, but this is too late for users of this feature. In theory, any release date between now and Sept 14th would be fine, although the earlier we do this, the earlier the respective updates can be tested by the users. Maybe around August 20th? Thanks for your consideration!
