Luca 2.5.3 Released

Category : Technology/Luca2dot5dot3.txt

Rio from Indonesia has been using Luca and he's hit a problem while trying to close a financial year. I had introduced a bug when I switched from using floating point arithmetic to using the higher precision NSDecimalNumbers. This bug prevents the year-end closing script from completing and it seems to have affected only SQLite users and not MySQL or PostgreSQL.

Anyway, I've fixed it in the 2.5.3 release and the year-end closing function will now work across all three database types. You can download Luca 2.5.3 from here.

I've managed to build a Leopard-compatible version of Luca. I've been experimenting with Leopard while I fixed that year-end closing bug. The 2.5.x releases mark the point where I transition to Leopard and see what new features in Cocoa I can take advantage of in Luca. There will be a Luca 3.0 when Leopard ships.
