    Bug 760711 - Non-ASCII characters not shown in Report Name when a report is created with 2.6.12

    Bug 763146 - Invalid exchange rate is recorded when entering multi-currency transaction
    Bug 763279 - GnuCash has empty reports in recent Gentoo builds.

Some other fixes not associated with reported bugs:

    Various memory leaks.
    More multi-currency fixes related to bug 763146.
    Be more liberal in accepting business counter custom formats: li, lli, I64i, and whatever is defined to G_GINT_64 or PRIx64 on the system on which GnuCash is compiled.
    Correctly re-value splits when the transaction currency is changed.
    Reset the transaction currency to match the currently open account when auto-completing.
    Refine the MacOS X localization when the system-generated POSIX locale isn't a supported locale: Prefer the country to language when selecting an alternate locale, but still pass the original language to gettext.
    Check printing: extract address from invoice/bill for payment transactions.

Robert Fewell has contributed changes needed to allow the 2.6 series to read files from future major versions which use GUIDs instead of names to identify matched accounts with the Bayesian import matcher.

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.
