☀ New & Noteworthy

Version 0.64.2 (+0.64.3) / 14 July 2023

A summer update with a few new functionalities and bug fixes (Yahoo Finance to download the latest price should work again).

Filter configurations are now stored in the XML file

Filters can be used to group any accounts and deposits together and filter all postings by these accounts only. Previously, these configurations were not stored in the file itself, but in the settings (i.e. the “settings” file). With this update, they will be migrated to the file. This makes it easier to synchronize the configurations between computers and to edit them better (until now you had to re-add a data series based on a filter to the charts after each change - this is no longer necessary).

If you use PP on multiple computers with the same file, the filters will be imported from the computer where the file is opened first with the new version.

New: MACD indicator in the price chart

MACD stands for Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator. User daveln has added MACD as an indicator to PP. Thanks a lot.

New: the Measurement Tool is now active for everyone

Until now, the Measurement Tool was hidden behind the “activate experimental functions” button. It is still slow on some computers, but seems to be good enough for most installations.

In the chart with historical prices, you can activate it via the toolbar or the context menu:

In the other diagrams it is also available from the context menu:

Various improvements and bug fixes.

  • Improvement of PDF importers: LGT Bank, sBroker, Bondora, FlatEx, Trade Republic, Vanguard
  • Improvement: More possibilities to create new instruments (securities, crypto currencies, etc): via keyboard shortcut Ctrl-N, via the (+) symbol next to “Securities” in the page navigation
  • Improvement: Tables from the tooltips remember the column widths
  • Improvement: tooltip for yields per year now contains all years
  • Improvement: columns with the ticker symbol in the classifications

Version 0.64.5 / 23 July 2023

A couple fixes and improvements for the PDF importer

  • Fix: Fixed an issue where new securities were mistakenly added to the watchlist of another file.
  • Fix: New securities are now created in the reporting currency when the provider does not provide currency information.
  • Improved PDF importer for GENO, sBroker, FlatEx, FFB, DKB, Deutsche Bank.

Version 0.65.0 / 14 August 2023

Introducing a new “crosshair” tool available in the price charts

The new “Crosshair” tool can be used to mark and evaluate the exact coordinates in the course diagram. Many thanks to @OnkelDok for this (and other) contributions.

Improvements when importing data from PDF documents

  • New: Suggestions of providers for historical prices for freshly imported securities from PDF or CSV files
  • New: Newly recognized securities can be assigned to existing securities during PDF import

The following video shows both features:

  • First, a PDF file is imported. But the security cannot be matched by ISIN, WKN and other properties. In the import dialog you can fix this directly.
  • If a new security is added within the importer, PP now tries to find historical prices for it. In the first step Portfolio Report is used. It searches for ISIN, WKN or ticker symbol.

Pie chart of earnings (dividends, interest) by taxonomy

There is a new widget on the dashboard: the earnings of a period can be displayed grouped by classification in a pie chart. This doesn’t make sense for all taxonomies, but I found it interesting to see how dividends and interest are distributed between risky and non-risky assets.

For example, here is an analysis by region:

The widget can be found under Income → Earnings by taxonomy:

New: Added support for PDF bank documents from Sberbank Europe and BISON

@Nirus continues to expand Importer support: with this release, Sberbank Europe is supported. Many thanks for that.

Also newly added are the info reports of the BISON app. This allows to import the crypto transactions. The cryptocurrency is detected by the symbol ticker. If it is not found, a new cryptocurrency with Coingecko rate supply will be created.

Various improvements and bug fixes.

  • Improvement: Date format is now automatically pre-filled during CSV import based on the current language setting
  • Improvement: CSV import now supports scientific notation for numbers
  • PDF Importer Enhancement: Expanded support for Raiffeisenbank, eBase, FlatEx, Quirion, Geno Broker, LGT Bank, and PostFinance
  • Fix: Tooltip for calculating price gains is now limited to 50 rows
  • Fix: Filter options are now properly applied when opening the list of all transactions

Version 0.56.6 / 11 November 2023

New: Display the number of shares held in the historical price chart

There is a new data series “shares” in the historical price chart - it shows the number of shares held over time. Have you ever reduced your position before the price really took off? Or increased the position before a phase of sideways movement? It’s not just about when you invest, but also how much.

Various improvements and fixes

  • Fix: Fixes an problem with IllegalArgumentException errors when displaying investements and dividends

Version 0.66.0 / 12 December 2023

A new version with various small improvements and bug fixes.

Tool tip of the Price Chart

In the price chart, the tooltip now displays the last value if there is no other value on that day. This eliminates the need to precisely pinpoint the buying or selling time in the FIFO or inventory data series.

Icon images under Windows now have improved transparency

Until now, icons under Windows always had a white background. With this version, PP uses a different library to manipulate the images. This should make the icons look better. Unfortunately, this does not apply to the icons that you have already integrated.

The tooltip in the chart legend shows the ISIN, WKN, and ticker symbol of the security

The legend of the charts now shows more information: either the details of the security or the full path of the classification.

Various Improvements

  • Improvement: Accounts with transactions can no longer be deleted. Transactions are required for historic calculations.
  • Improvement: In the “Payments” overview, transactions now also include the closing transaction of a trade.
  • PDF Importer Improvement: Trade Republic, OLB, Baader Bank, Comdirect.

Fixes

  • Fix: Resolves a rounding issue in calculating the average of investments or earnings.
  • Fix: Finnhub has transitioned the API for historical prices to a premium subscription. Currently, at least partially, current prices are still available for free.
  • Fix: Resolves a performance issue in displaying historical security prices.

Version 0.66.2 / 13 December 2023

Thank you for your patience!
