    Release Notes: This release fixes the transaction numbers, which in some cases started at 2 instead of 1, importing and exporting, which sometimes caused the accounttypes to not be updated properly, and startup, when the welcome screen showed up even if it wasn't supposed to.

        Release Notes: Lazy 8 Ledger was changed to be compatible with jEdit 4.2. Lazy 8 Ledger can no longer be run with a jEdit version 4.1 or less. Some window properties could not be saved, and were lost when turning off the program. This has been fixed. A nice link to a bookkeeping tutorial was added. Lots of very minor changes were made everywhere, both in the documentation and in the program.

          Release Notes: Several new reports were added. The way that customers and projects are referenced was redesigned. The ability to customize the account types was added, which makes the program more adaptable to different countries. A new communication system was added between all the windows, so that when data in one window is updated, all the other windows are automatically updated. Previously, a restart of the program was required to update all windows. Many other minor feature changes and documentation changes were made.

            Release Notes: Many requested that it be possible to leave the invoice date in the transaction input screen from the previous entry so that they wouldn't have to type in the date every time. It is done and it is an option.
