Printing

Abassis now has a printing feature! And it looks beautiful! I am very proud of it, as it was the first time I did a report using Delphi. Now on to work on the chart feature, which is not as easy to develop as I first thought. The good news is that I've found a charting component that works on Abassis, and it comes with good examples. I don't expect the release of a new version with these features to take longer than two weeks, but I may be wrong.

New Features

I'm working on two new features for Abassis: charts to visually analyse the expenses and preview/printing of the transactions for the month. These and some other small features are the basic set for Abassis.

After that, I must start to plan which new features will be chosen for the next version. It's not so difficult, as there are lots of small personal finance and budget management shareware competitors around, and two big software titles in the area, Intuit's Quicken and Microsoft's Money. I will download and evaluate the competition to pick the best features for Abassis. To lead, one must first need to follow. I plan on implementing new functions and approaches for personal finance management, but this will have to wait at least until version 2.0.
