Moneydance 2019.2, Spring Edition

Today’s Moneydance update brings so much progress that it’s difficult to fit into one blog post, but we’ll do our best. First, this update has massive improvements in online banking and file importing. The QIF import especially is far easier and more capable than it’s ever been, and that’s significant. The online banking infrastructure has been significantly upgraded to be more compatible with more banks and less sensitive to things like bank certificate changes.

In addition, we’ve been polishing a lot of the interface with font improvements, colour tweaking, and generally making Moneydance more beautiful.

Included below the fold is the full list of changes. If you’d like to simply get the update you can download it directly. If you prefer, you can also purchase it through the Mac App Store.
