QuickBooks 2006 release 4
Intuit has launched QuickBooks 2006 for Mac, Release 4. The update complies with changed mandated by the U.S. Congress' Check 21 Act, offering a new wallet check layout and the image-compatible Check 21 layout. QuickBooks 2006 Release 4 repairs a bug related to unexpected behavior when opening a company file with the setting "Show Reminders List when QuickBooks starts," and fixes a memory leak when condensing a company file. Changes to online banking include improvements to the user interface, as well as a bug fix related to .qbo files containing a plus sign. The update properly displays account names in "Profit & Loss" reports, correctly handles applying a partial payment to multiple invoices, and fixes an issue when trying to save the "Edit State Tax Information" window from within PayCycle. QuickBooks 2006 for Mac, Release 4 is available via download to registered users, while the full QuickBooks 2006 for Mac application is available for $200. The software requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
