Quicken for Mac 2016 v3.2 Released
We're slowly starting to roll out Quicken for Mac 2016 v3.2 to customers. Not everyone will get the upgrade notice right away but it should appear sometime this week. This is for Quicken retail customers only. Mac App Store customers will get the upgrade in a couple of weeks.
A New Release Process
We're trying something different with this release. As you might guess it's very difficult for us to track all of the activity in QLC and to figure out if issues being reported are new in the release or not. We want to make sure we quickly jump on and investigate any new issues. Please reply to this post with any new issues that you run into with the 3.2 release to help us find these issues faster. A number of us in the development team will monitor this post and we'll be notified anytime someone replies with an issue speeding our response. We'll give this a try for a bit to see if it helps the communication flow.
In addition, I wanted to let you know that we are moving to a monthly update cycle. We feel this will allow us to turn around and fix issues faster and also give you a sense of when you can expect updates.
What's new in 3.2?
v3.2 is primarily a bug fix release. We fixed a number of the issues many of which were originally reported in these forums.
- Fixed bond face value issue - A number of you reported bond face value errors. This was due to financial institutions changing the way they sent us bond data which threw off our calculations. In 3.2 we've changed the way we calculate bonds so the face values will be accurate but it does mean that we can no longer support savings bonds and other non-standard bonds. We had to pick one way to calculate the values so we decided to support the method that would benefit the most customers which is the same calculation that Quicken Windows uses.
- Fixed cash values not appearing in charts - This was a regression that appeared in 3.2. This would only occur if there weren't any other transactions. This is the type of issue we hope you'll report when replying to this thread.
- Fixed a number of Windows file converter issues - There was a bad bug that would drop the reconcile/clear flag on transfers upon import so when a user tried to reconcile their accounts on the Mac, the numbers would be off. If you're seeing an issue like this either re-import your windows file do your transactions can be imported properly or manually change the legacy transactions that have lost their reconciled flag.
- Fixed un-formatted stock details page - This was an issue with our 3rd party vendor's web page. This has been fixed now.
There's a bunch of other fixes. You can read the full list in our release notes at the Updates from the Quicken Mac Product Team at http://intuit.me/1R47KsF.
What's coming up?
I wanted to let you know what we're working on for the next release. We are actively working on a 12 month budget feature. We are hoping to release this in 3.3 but we'll see how far we get. We should have an early sneak peek of the feature in our upcoming beta.
