Skrooge 0.8.0 Released

The Skrooge team is proud to announce the release of version 0.8.0, bringing new features and bugfixes. One of the noteworthy additions in this version is a very first draft of a budget module:

Please be aware that the budget module is not yet considered in a stable state, and might be subject to heavy modifications in the upcoming versions, probably mostly on the visual side.

I’ll take advantage of this announce to request help from you dear users : help us identify what is working, and what’s not working in this module. If someone, in addition would be so kind as to step in and help us with writing documentation, that would be great :).
