Moneydance 2014 Changelog

Ethan Tupelo -

This document contains detailed information on the changes between builds of the official stable releases of Moneydance.  The latest stable release can always be found at  The latest preview beta release can be found at  Unless instructed by the support staff or if you want to experiment at your own risk, most users should only use the downloads available on the main download page. 
If you downloaded Moneydance from another source such as the Mac App Store, you should only download Moneydance from that source, as your license will only work with those versions.  New stable releases typically reach the Mac App Store a week or so later than they are released on our site, as they need to be reviewed by Apple first.
