Frugal 1.x is the completely new release of Frugal, the money management program. The GUI is updated and most of the code under the hood has been rewritten and updated to improve execution speed.
Frugal 1.0 beta 1 is the first beta release on the 1.x track. Even though the GUI is new and much of the core code, the projects are unchanged which means a project created in Frugal 0.x can be used in 1.x, and vice-versa.
Beta 1 adds functionality to create new projects, create new shares from the transaction dialog and improves the overall user experience.
The suggested use case of Frugal 1.0 beta is to use the program in parallel with the stable Frugal 0.x release. The same project can be used with both programs.
Please find the alpha release in the project's file browser. (frugal-1.0b1)

Frugal 1.x is the complete new release of Frugal, the money management program. The GUI is updated and most of the code under the hood has been rewritten and updated to improve execution speed.
Frugal 1.0 alpha 2 is the second release on the 1.x track. Even though the GUI is new and much of the core code, the projects are unchanged which means a project created in Frugal 0.x can be used in 1.x, and vice-versa.
Alpha 2 adds functionality to add shares and accounts to projects, as a part of adding new transactions. A bug in the buy/sell share functionality is solved.
The suggested use case of Frugal 1.0 alpha 2 is to view projects that are currently managed in Frugal 0.x. The new GUI gives many more opportunities to view the financial situation not available in the current stable Frugal 0.24 release.
Limitations; it is not possible to manually add share prices or currency rates.

Maybe people would like to aquire comfort wealth. Enough wealth not to be bothered to consider money when it comes to the extra little things that makes life a little bit more special. Maybe to affort that extra holiday to the sun when the snow is thick on the ground, or not be in financial troubles when a home appliance suddenly that breaks down. The question is, how do you actually aquire that type of comfort wealth. Obviously a lottery ticket is not the way to go.
There a few strategies, of course. And some are better and some are worse in different times, some allow you to continue living comfortably during your investment period while others don't.
One of the best books that I have read on the subject to aquire wealth and at the same time live comfortable, if not the very best book, can be bought from any online book shop for next to nothing. It is called "The Richest man in Babylon" and is written by George Clason. The book dates back to the 1920s when Clason published household finanance advice pamphlets which were over time bundled together into this book.
Today there is an updated version of the book available, but I would go for the original. The basic methods to aquire wealth are the same as they always have been, and always will be. There is no new economy.
The plot is set in ancient Babylon and presents a series of stories about the babylonians. The different chapters, or lessons, may seem trivial at first sight and even a bit childish as they are set in ancient times, but it works. The message is very clear. Look through the plot and find the valuable advice and take it from there.
It should be noted that it is not all about money, it is just as much about a good life and happiness. That is, how much can you save and still have a comfortable life?
For me, it is one of the most inspiring book about thrift that I have ever read. I have even re-read major parts of the book, something that I generally never do after I have read a book once. So I would definately recommend this book to anyone interested in household finance and aquiring a bit of wealth.
