New GnuCash now with database backend

In the latest announcement of GnuCash 2.3.13 (Unstable) some major changes in the 2.3.x release are mentioned:

  • * In addition to the XML backend, Gnucash can now use a SQLite3, MySQL or PostgreSQL database to store the data. This is a new implementation using libdbi. It supports all features including the business features. In order to build with this, add --enable-dbi to the configure command. In addition to the libdbi-dev package for your distribution, you will also need the appropriate DBD (libdbi driver) package for sqlite3, mysql or postgresql.

I just wanted to highlight this new feature as this could be interesting.
