| From: SternData <subscribed-li...@sterndata.com> | Version 3.0 was released the other day. Are there plans to update the | version in the repos? I don't see anything in updates-testing.
I'm looking forward to it because some gnucash bugs were caused by using an old version of webkit and 3.0 moves to a newer version. I tried to build it myself, under Fedora 27. It came with no .spec file. That's fine: I'd like to keep the old version while playing with the new one, so creating and installing a .rpm is probably not the way for me to go. Still, it would be nice to have a .spec. On the other hand, each distro using a .spec would probably need a different one -- too bad. A README talks about a .spec, but it is quite quite old and not even included in the distributed tarball. <https://github.com/Gnucash/gnucash/blob/maint/packaging/README.RPM> The documentation for building under Fedora is quite wrong. It seems to assume that you've installed a source RPM (for build dependencies) and then doesn't use that .spec. Of course the real build dependencies might well be different from those in the old .spec. <https://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Building#Fedora> Building under F27 fails because it needs "gwen3.gui-gtk3" but Fedora 27 doesn't have such a thing. I presume that that was added to Gwenhyfar after the version in F27.
