Important update notification

If you are updating from gnucash 2.6.0-2.6.4 on linux, you are advised to remove the guile user cache or several parts of gnucash may fail to work properly. This user cache can be found in .cache/guile/ccache/2.0-LE-8-2.0/ in your home directory. It's safe to remove the whole contents of this directory.

Note .cache is a hidden folder in your home directory. You may have to change your file manager's settings in order to view hidden files and folders.
Documentation

Concurrent with the release of Gnucash 2.6.11 we're pleased to also release a new version 2.6.11 of the companion Help and Tutorial and Concepts Guide.

    More German Translation work from Mechtilde Stehmann.
    New German illustrations from Mechtilde Stehmann.
    Use letter size paper only in US or C locales. The rest of the world uses metric A4 paper. The locale detection is done at configure.
    Clarify that creating a postponed SX will use the original date.
    Bug 759859 - Reconcilation does not convert transactions' currency to the main one making reconcilation impossible.
    Bug 760016 - 2.6.10 and master dump script error while running configure.
    Bug 760407 - Note account separator isn't always a colon.
