            Release Notes: The most significant change is full support for "lot sales" transactions, such as buying a lot of stock shares at one price, then selling that exact lot later for another price. There have been many bugfixes, as well as improvements in the parser. Ledger remains 100% backwards compatible. Many of the new features are not yet documented, as the manual is being rewritten for the upcoming 3.0 release. Therefore, most users should consider this a maintenance release.
