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.
Concurrent with the release of Gnucash 2.6.9 we're pleased to also release a new version 2.6.9 of the companion Help and Tutorial and Concepts Guide.
