LedgerSMB Technical Preview has been released for those who don't use subversion. It includes a lot of new functionality, and more is planned for the full release once it is stabilized. This is for developers, and is not intended for production use.
THis includes Gentoo Ebuilds support.
The LedgerSMB project has released a document which is intended to clarify the direction that this application is going and how we will make LedgerSMB the best accounting software for small to midsize buisnesses.

This is a maintenance release that corrects a few minor bugs.
This version includes a number of major bug fixes for the extended functionality of the software.
A bug has been discovered in the upgade scripts for LedgerSMB 1.1.0 and 1.1.1 which can cause the upgrade to fail.
A new version will be released no later than tomorrow.
This release fixes a few issues with the creation of a few of the new functions.

If there is something that you would like to see there, please let us know. Some features already planned: a live demo and some sort of community driven documentation (possibly via wiki).
Many usability enhancements including inventory activity reports, Experimental support is included for Windows server-side printing, and a utility is included for near-real-time email notifications of short parts. Additionally, there are security enhancements including the requirement that one change the admin password on first use. Finally, we have data integrity enhancements with the addition of several database-level protections including primary and foreign keys, and constraints.
We were notified today of a serious directory transversal and arbitrary code execution vulnerability in LedgerSMB. This vulnerability was inherited from SQL-Ledger, but after we notified Dieter, he fixed the problem (SQL-Ledger 2.6.19 is patched).
All users of LedgerSMB should upgrade to 1.0.0p1 immediately.
LedgerSMB 1.0.0 is an incrimental change from SQL-Ledger 2.6.17. It fixes critical security problems involving session handling. Other changes include tighter cache settings, a NOT NULL constraint on acc_trans.chart_id, and changing the acc_trans.amount from FLOAT to NUMERIC.
Over coming releases, a larger number of security and data integrity improvements will be made.
Additionally, this project offers Free documentation, and several controls to ensure that it will always be a truly open effort.
