Moneylender 3 Professional Changelog

Released Version 3.0.226 - 2024-02-19

  • If a loan has per-diem late fees, recaluclate should always start at the beginning.
  • Borrower import allows mapping to custom fields.
  • Loan import now allows mapping custom fields for the primary borrower (loan and secondary borrowers already had custom fields, apparently).
  • Template Designer now allows copy/pasting template objects. Select one or more objects (hold Control key while clicking to select multiple) and then click the buttons at the top or press Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V to copy and paste. Objects can be copied to the same page, new pages, or even different templates. If copied to the same page, pasted objects have a slight offset so they're not just overlapping the originals.
  • When clicking to select or move a template object in the template designer, the object in the foreground is selected. Previously, the background object would get selected - which was awful.

Released Version 3.0.225 - 2023-12-31

  • Tested and ready for the 2023 Tax Year's Form 1098s.
  • New option -Itemize by Lenders- on the lender drop-down for reports will run the report once for each lender in the portfolio and list all the results.
  • Fixed problems with creating a Custom field and then adding it to the main window as a column would make the main stop working until Moneylender was restarted.
  • Network communications now have a mechanism to inform the client that their request caused an error on the host computer.
  • Better error handling on network hosts to accommodate requests that cause an error.

Released Version 3.0.224 - 2023-07-13

  • Added a new report values - SummaryOfFinancesRecord:CostBasisBeginning and SummaryOfFinancesRecord:CostBasisRemaining for visiblity into the cost basis for a loan.
  • Clicking a loan from a network computer now requests most of the relevant records in a single batch, instead of several sequential batches. It cuts the time from clicking a loan to the details being visible by about 60%.
  • Allow importing Payments and Borrowers from a network instance of Moneylender.
  • Added "Charged but not due" options for Other Fees and Extension Fees.
  • Refresh button is always clickable on reports.

Version 3.0.223 - 4th May 2023

  • Added Recent Portfolios to the File menu to make it easier to reopen both file and network portfolios.

Version 3.0.222 - 16th March 2023

  • Fixed error if a variable rate interest setting took over in the middle of a loan it would calculate additional interest from the start of the variable rate's index.
  • Added the option to tag an inventory item to an existing loan by selecting it in the main window before opening the inventory list.
  • Fixed crash on Projected Payment report for loans that have no scheduled due dates.

Version 3.0.221 - 10th March 2023

  • Added several statement tags to represesent the balances of the loan on the date the statement is generated instead of on the loan's due date. LoanTodaysOverallBalance, LoanTodaysPrincipalBalance, LoanTodaysInterestBalance, LoanTodaysAmountDue, LoanTodaysInterestBearing, LoanTodaysExtension1Balance, LoanTodaysExtension2Balance, LoanTodaysExtension3Balance.
  • Added "Skip One Payment and Exend Loan" to the Loan menu. Details in the User's Guide.

Version 3.0.220 - 6th March 2023

  • Fixed: Moneylender crashing when a network client used the Regular Payment column and there was a loan using the Interest is Amount Due setting for the regular payment.
  • Added <LoanTotalPaidAllTime> tag that lists the amount of all the non-returned payments ever received on the loan.
  • Removed returned payments from the sums for the <LoanTotalPaidYTD> and <LoanTotalPaidLastYear> tags.
  • AutoPay enrollment from a network instance of Moneylender will now send the login to the host instance of Moneylender where the portfolio's enrollment in AutoPay occurs.
  • AutoPay tokens are no longer updated from network clients when the portfolio settings are saved.
  • Added the continuously compounding annual interest rate compatible with the "Amortized with Daily Interest" calculation engine.

Version 3.0.219 - 31st December 2022

  • Added updated official Form 1098 template for 2022. (Other templates not affected by IRS revisions).
  • When AutoPay is cancelled, Moneylender will deactivate AutoPay in the portfolio after the final AutoPay billing cycle is collected.
  • Added three fields to SummaryOfFinancesRecord for reports: LenderPricePaid, LenderPricePaidWithinReport, and LenderOwnershipPercent.

Version 3.0.218 - 21st November 2022

  • Borrower Phone, Email and Address are now required when submitting a loan to AutoPay.
  • Cleaned up the AutoPay windows in Moneylender a little.
  • Fixed the AutoPay Re-Send Invite Code button.
  • AutoPay system will now generate new portfolio key IDs every 10 minutes or so to prevent a backup of a portfolio from successfully connecting to the AutoPay server. This is to prevent a user opening a backup from uploading outdated loan information to the AutoPay server. If a loan had been closed, but the outdated file had the loan open, AutoPay might be left with an open loan that never updates.
  • Added date of likely bank draft and date processing will complete to the payment details for processing payments on the borrower-facing AutoPay website.
  • When a closed loan is uploaded to AutoPay, recurring payments and pending one-time payments are cancelled automatically.
  • Fixed: Under some circumstances, AutoPay wouldn't begin to synchronize until the Portfolio Settings were edited on the loan.
  • When closing a loan, you are only prompted to mark a payment final if it is larger than at least half the principal balance on the loan. This will skip that question when charging off a loan to avoid confusion.
  • If a loan doesn't end with a final payment and looks like it won't be paid off in full, the default date in the closing wizard will be today instead of the date of the last payment.

Version 3.0.217 - 9th November 2022

  • Add an optional minimum rate for interest that varies on prime.
  • fixed: Variable rate loans with daily interest might pick up the interest rate one transaction too soon.
  • fixed: Under some conditions, the AutoPay synchronization process might not start when a portfolio was opened.

Version 3.0.216 - 26th October 2022

  • ACH batch file export for principal disbursements can now be sorted by clicking the column headers.
  • Payoff quotes through API now populate the interest, principal and fee amounts properly.

Version 3.0.215 - 29th September 2022

  • The fix for late fees applied in 214 was inadvertently removing concessions for fees added shortly before a due date. I'm not crushing it with reliable rollouts this week 😢

Version 3.0.214 - 29th September 2022

  • Fixed a bug from version 212 that would put interest capitalization transactions on loans erroneously.
  • When a metro2 report is created, all open loans have their "closedreportedon" date reset.
  • Added the <PayoffAmountMinusEscrow> tag to allow showing the payoff amount if the current escrow balance is applied toward the loan.
  • Moneylender was not recognizing payments through AutoPay that were marked as "Incorrect" by the borrower's bank account.
  • Added a "does not end with" report filter option.
  • Added Email Override Name to the portfolio settings on the General 2 tab. All emails sent from Moneylender from this portfolio will show the sender as whatever's in the box instead of the lender name.
  • When deciding if a late fee should apply, the calculator will use the balance at the end of the date on the actual due date in question. Previously, only due balance on days after the due date were considered, which might cause an unexpected late fee when the loan was paid in full on the due date, but a subsequent adjustment to the amount due (that was not generated by an Other Fee record) within the grace period was entered.

Version 3.0.213 - 26th September 2022

  • Fixes for some of the networking bugs people are encountering after the version 212 update.

Version 3.0.212 - 23rd September 2022

  • Major revisions to AutoPay finally went live along with most of the features listed under 3.0.214.

Version 3.0.212 - 23rd September 2022

  • Major revisions to AutoPay finally went live along with most of the features listed under 3.0.214.

Version 3.0.211 - 11th July 2022

  • Added IsRefinance property to loans to track when a loan is created by the refinance calculator.
  • Added the "Was Disbursed" property to principal settings to track whether a loan has been disbursed to the borrower or not.
  • ACH Principal Disbursement now auto-selects principal that hasn't been marked as disbursed yet, and then marks as disbursed when the ACH file is generated.
  • Option to subtract the points on the loan from the principal disbursement on loans that are not refinances.

Version 3.0.210 - 28th June 2022

  • Added a batch date option for generating an ACH Disbursement file.
  • Added a field to the lender to hold a bank-issued ID for use with batches in the ACH disbursement files.

Version 3.0.209 - 16th June 2022

  • AutoPay payments disputed as "incorrect" weren't updating to the loan record properly.
  • Added ACH disbursements option to the Regional menu. Lenders that make lots of loans can generate a file with the disbursements to upload to their bank.

Version 3.0.208 - 2nd May 2022

  • Metro2 reports were omitting new loans from reports if the loans had no payments ever received and no regular payments due before the end of the current reporting period.
  • When a closed loan is reclaculated, it is marked for resubmission in Metro2 reports.

Version 3.0.207 - 26th April 2022

  • Fixed: In multi-user network environments, dead connections from network client Moneylenders that were terminated without being allowed to shut down would cause the host instance of Moneylender to crash when clearing the abandoned connection.

Version 3.0.206 - 22nd April 2022

  • Fixed Metro2 files were reporting the InnovisID in all four ID slots, MLP now properly reports the Equifax, Experian and TransUnion IDs in their respective slots.
  • Fixed: A loan nearing maturity that also has escrow would start showing a weird due date. This was because the newly added mechanism to ensure the regular payment/amount due never excees the loan's overall balance wasn't including the escrow due. It now includes the escrow due and also has a hard limit of zero so it can't set a negative regular payment.

Version 3.0.205 - 15th April 2022

  • Generate Payment History on the Tools menu now imposes a limit of a couple years in the future when populating the list of starting due dates.
  • Fixed a freeze when using the "Click for Calculated Amounts" option with lines of credit.
  • The servicing borrower's email field can now have multiple emails separated by a comma or semicolon and Moneylender will send statements to multiple emails accordingly.
  • Added a checkbox on the borrower settings window to always CC a borrower on emails, even if they're not the primary borrower.
  • Add <LoanPaidThroughDate> tag for statements.
  • Allow escrow on precomputed loan types.

Version 3.0.204 - 15th February 2022

  • Fixed: The API was writing below the cache layer, so updates to loans were getting undone when the calculator used the cached copy for recalculating. The API now notifies the cache layer when records are saved to the portfolio.

Version 3.0.203 - 14th February 2022

  • Added the option to keep record IDs when copying to a new portfolio. Useful when you want to keep a copy of some loans in a different portfolio, and want to keep those loans updated by re-copying them from the main portfolio instead of creating duplicates during the copy.
  • "Copy select loans to a different portfolio" from the Tools menu wasn't copying the escrow disbursements.
  • Projected Payments amortizer allows full escrow details now, instead of clearing the escrow prior to generating the report information.
  • Added the description "Auto-Generated History" to payments created by the Auto-Generate Payment History tool to help identify these payments if the tool is run by mistake.
  • The amount of a regular payments will never exceed the overall balance on the loan - even when the Fixed Additional amount is non-zero.

Version 3.0.202 - 7th February 2022

  • Fixed a problem with the API not handling filters on enum values if the value was supplied as text instead of a number.

Version 3.0.201 - 4th February 2022

  • File > New Portfolio will no longer allow you to create a portfolio using a name for a file that already exists after asking if you're sure twice. Now it will just prevent this entirely. You will need to delete the existing portfolio from File Explorer if you really want to replace it with an empty portfolio.
  • Added a space on Moneylender's main window to display the status of the AutoBackup system and warn if regular backups aren't happening.
  • Fixed Custom Columns would throw off the main window when switching portfolios.
  • API search on enum columns was not working.
  • Added "Ignore portfolio's future days on overpayments." checkbox to loan settings. Mostly for use when your look ahead setting on the Portfolio Settings > Numbers tab is almost as long as the actual payment cycle on a loan.
  • Added SummaryOfFinancesRecord:RecentPaymentDate and :RecentPaymentAmount options for financial summary report columns. This value will be the date or amount of the most recent payment that was not marked as returned. LatestPaymentDate/Amount includes returned payments in the values listed - so these new values only show the last non-returned payment.

Version 3.0.200 - 28th January 2022

  • Fixed an issue where these settings weren't behaving properly when all were enabled: loan is set to pay regular payment before fees, a large fee was added as an interest bearing fee, and regular payment is set so interest is amount due.
  • Add payment calculator API endpoint.

Version 3.0.199 - 27th January 2022

  • Fixed a problem with the API not noticing integer values in record edits.

Version 3.0.198 - 25th January 2022

  • Removed some extra spaces in the IRS FIRE 'C' records.
  • Added the option to enter all 0's for the SSN on a borrower that does not have a social security number, and then the 1098 system will report it as blank to the IRS.

Version 3.0.194 - 10th January 2022

  • Added option to disable the daily refresher under file > Moneylender Settings.
  • Added new fields to the IRS FIRE file generator.

Version 3.0.190 - 15th December 2021

  • Added <LoanRegularPITIAmount> tag to list the regular payment plus the current escrow charge (Principal, Interest, Taxes, Insurance currently due).
  • Changed the value reported on the <PayoffFeeTotal> tag for payoff quote templates to be the sum of the loan's fee balance, and all fees marked due at closing. Previously, the fees due at closing were not included in this sum. Updated the tag's description accordingly.
  • Fixed: Lines of credit (and other loans) with no principal activity for a while were showing the loan as past due until a principal disbursement eventually happened.
  • Copy Loan also copies the extension fee records.

Version 3.0.189 - 18th November 2021

  • Add checkbox to pay regular P&I payment before escrow. (matches the payment application wording for Fannie Mae loan contracts).

  • Added a Description field to Interest setting records.

Version 3.0.187 - ??? November 2021

  • I don't know what was in this update. Probably something small.

-Added "Property HOA" option to the Escrow Disbursement Purpose choices.
-Allow selecting multiple items in inventory to sell under one loan, and returning the individual items back to inventory with updated costs basis for each if the loan is bad.

2021-08-26 Released version 3.0.182
-Added inventory tracking with basis across multiple reposessions from Other Records > Inventory. -Fixed: late fees were re-appearing but maybe going away again when recording a payment after the end of the original term of the loan with the loan continuation set to expect payments but no late fees.
-Fixed a crash when running a projected payments report for a loan that had no payments.
-Added File > Export Portfolio Data so you can convert your entire portfolio into a series of CSV files for use however you see fit.
-Basis for a lender on a loan is now based on the balance immediately before any payments are applied, instead of after the days payments have applied - so a lender now gets credit for payments on the first day of the loan and/or payments that occur on the first day they begin their ownership of a loan or part of a loan.
-Allow per-loan setting the ratio of regular payment for Moneylender to switch from current payment to catch-up mode on the Settings tab > Loan Settings window.

2021-07-07 Released version 3.0.181

2021-06-25 Released version 3.0.180

2021-06-07 Released version 3.0.179
-Fixed a variety of crashes related to networked Moneylenders getting a bad response from the host computer, various changes in state of records while editing loans, reporting corner cases, etc.
-Fixed: Under some conditions, clicking the Maturity button on the payoff calculator would make Moneylender sad.

When printing, the printer's paper settings will override the report defaults, and the reports will be laid out as best they can with the paper size /orientation indicated in the print job.
-Fixed: late fees occurring before the calculation start date might have modified the actual start of calculations when resuming mid-loan, which may have lead to some numbers being uninitialized properly. The calculator always starts one day after the previous due date on loans with due dates, so the issue is not likely to have had an impact on any calculations in real loans.
-Fixed: When resuming a calculation mid-loan, Moneylender might not have properly honored a fee's custom grace period, preferring instead the loan's grace period.

-The new "InterestFees" account tracks how much fees are currently interest bearing. The fees paid from payments will now only pay down the basis on the loan by the amount of interest bearing fees paid, even if non-interest bearing fees are also paid by the same payment.

2021-02-12 Released version 3.0.172
-Fixed icon still illuminated on closed loans.
-Added a Refreshing progress bar to indicate when the system is updating the balances in the background.

-Late Fees and Other Fees now have their own setting to make them interest bearing. The Loan's Compound Interest setting now only affects the interest. This gives better control over what will become interest bearing on a loan. Existing loans with compound interest enabled will automatically have their other fees set to earn interest when the portfolio is upgraded to the latest version. Late fees were never interest bearing, so now you have the option to enable this on your late fees if desired.
-Interest was sometimes being overcharged at the beginning of daily interest loans when a payment was changed to slightly before an the first due date after an interest rate setting took effect (including the first rate setting on the loan).
-Form 1098 Principal balance was the balance at the end of the day on 1/1 instead of at the beginning of the day.
-Escrow Charge Calculator finally shows the correct regular payment without the target date needing to be changed first.
-Fixed Escrow charge calculator hanging if a loan's final payment occurs before the analysis period. (The loan is past the maturity, and then the escrow charge calculator is run anyway to figure out escrow when there are no scheduled payments within the analysis period.)

2021-01-05 Released version 3.0.171

-Fixed an error on the new MonthlyPaymentAmount report column.

2020-09-28 Released version 3.0.167
-Added a sanity cap of 100 years into the future for recurring fees with no end. This stops the amortization schedule from taking a very long time when the loan has certain recurring other fees.

-Date format in Loan Details panel needs to have the language set explicitly.
-Informal loans were still using a 1 year calculation horizon instead of the new setting in the Portfolio Settings.

-Fixed an error that would occur on slow-loading payment reports when changing report options and refreshing before the initial report had loaded.
-Add an option to loans to pay fees after interest and principal. Payment below the amount due minus fees balance pays interest, then principal, and then what's left follows the normal rules.
-Add LoanRecentPrincipalAmount and LoanRecentPrincipalDate template tags to show the most recent principal disbursal on a loan.

-Adjust column sizes to print nicely for default reports.
-Math on reports now goes from left to right (instead of right to left).
-Some of the balances on reports now reflect percent ownership when a specific lender is selected. For example, the principal balance might be 100k on a loan, but wenr reporting for a lender that owns 25%, the principal will be shown as 25k to show the lender's stake in the principal balance.

2017-12-04 Released version 3.0.46:

-Fixed value on the <LoanAmountdueIfLate> tag to queue off the amountduedate instead of the current due date - would have the wrong value if printing statements on loans that were paid ahead.
-<BorrowerAllFormattedName> now populates with the list of names of all borrowers on the loan.
-Points paid is now a number that can be used on lender reports.
-Revert button for Statement templates and Report templates now clears and resets the corresponding templates (after asking if you're sure).

2017-11-28 Released version 3.0.45:
-LoanAmountPastDue tag now shows the latter of the amount due on the previous due date or after the last payment was received.
-LoanNewFees tag now shows the amount fees added to the loan since the latter of the previous due date or the most recent payment.

-Some work has been done on getting single-lender reports to show fractional ownership on loans.
-Fixes for lots of other little bugs and glitches.

2017-11-03 Worked on various parts of the program for the last few days. Got a couple reports of crashes, and released version 3.0.37 and then version 3.0.38 to address the reported problems. And then 3.0.39. It's nice to have people crawling through the whole thing with their specific loans to help identify trouble areas. Also, added the collateral field to the loan settings window. Lots of other small fixes and adjustments. Getting a lot of really great feedback, to be honest. Several customers are making the switch to version 3 now, so a lot of customer support through the transition.
2017-10-31 Released Moneylender 3 as the first production ready version!! There's still a bunch of great features on the list of things to be added, but the core components are working nicely and have been field-tested by a few dozen lenders. Updates across the and websites to reflect that Moneylender 3 is the current version of the program. Released second production version 3.0.35 and then version 3.0.36 with support for importing payments from Excel.
2017-10-24 Revised a protion of the calculation engine that edjusted the amount due when loans were overpaid and paid in advance. When closing loans, you can explicity set the loan status to be reported to credit bureaus. Changed the date shown in the details panel to the "current due date", which corresponds with the amount shown for "amount due". Published Beta v3.0.33.
2017-10-23 Fixed crash if getting payoff quote before interest starts. Autobackup now removed previous copies when it hits the max copy count. Moneylender 3 now has a demo mode. Add support for "YYYY", "YY", "MM", and "DD" to inject the numeric year, month and day into auto-generated loan numbers - in addition to the default formatting already available. Custom fields for Loan, Borrower, and Loender can now be added as columns in the main window. Ledger tab of the details panel doesn't show future transactions. When switching loans, the ledger panel remembers what account was displayed. Added LoanLastPaymentDate column option for the main window. Loan details panel was reloading twice or more with each click on a loan, fixed so it only does it once. Main Window was loading twice, fixed that. Fixed the password problem when creating a new account on the WTech Store. Added a Change Password option on the WTech Store once logged into an account. Plenty of testing.
2017-10-19 Ok, Metro2 reporting is pretty much fully integrated. There's one or two odds and ends (like when you close a loan it'll ask you to choose one of the closed account settings, but for now users can choose the account status that fits from the Loan's Metro2 settings dialog. That was a tremendous amount of functionality - adding full Metro2 support to Moneylender 3 in six days. Yikes! With that done, and some more eay tasks, there's only 25 items on my list left to do (from a total of 51 so far) and most of the big stuff is finished. It's looking pretty good for the Halloween launch.
2017-10-17 Wow, two weeks to go! Moneylender 3 is very close to actually producing Metro2 file. The base data for the files is coming out - just the header and footer records for the file need to be made, a couple very small report segments (Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac ID numbers and buy/sell reporting), and the account status code and payment history profile in the main base segment.
2017-10-16 OMG!! After working pretty much the whole weekend and today, the "Metro2 Base Segment" is almost entirely populated. There are three fields left to populate which require some careful checking of details. Structurally, Moneylender 3's Metro2 system is superior to Moneylender 2 in that temporary codes that should be reported once and then blanked out or revert to other settings will do so autmatically in Moneylender 3. Some of the Metro2 choices are much more robust than in Moneylender 2 as well, providing details in the program about when and why to use various reporting codes. A monumental task that is very close to completion, soon to be checking off 8 of the 26 unchecked "before Moneylender 3 goes live" boxes! So excited that Metro2 support will be implemented at Moneylender 3's release - albeit still needing some real-world verification.

After emailing the Moneylender 3 Beta users 10 days ago, there's been some very helpful feedback coming in. Many items are quick fixes and needed cleanup, and the program is so much better thanks to the extra sets of eyes on it. A huge thanks to all the Beta users, and please keep the feedback coming in.
2017-10-11 Lots of good stuff added today: auto-backup works now and checks if nothing has been edited since the last auto-backup to avoid overwriting multiple copies with essentially identical backup copies; made an Import Borrowers video on the help documentation; warns the user that the portfolio is corrupt if a portfolio is opened after the program was shut down during the compress process (a backup is always made before starting the compress for exactly this situation); finally have the triangle excalamation notification icons working - lighting up when a loan is approaching maturation; when opening a portfolio, if it has not been backed up for 90 days the program will invite you to make a backup; when changing the columns on the Moneylender Settings, the column choices take effect immediately instead of after the program is restarted.
2017-10-10 Finished up the support of template files, moved the defaults templates from a portfolio file to a template file, adjusted the installer accordingly. Tested a bunch of stuff. Finished up support for printed checks and made a basic printed check template to ship with the program. When using a password to open a portfolio, the user permissions that match the password take effect. Permissions are honored for editing borrowers and lenders. Permissions honored for editing loan settings.
2017-10-09 Set up a Template file structure that can hold templates and reports but not loan data. Reports of trouble when opening Moneylender 2 portfolios came in from a couple people and fixed a few bugs that were preventing direct-upgrade of MLP2 files from completing. Testing network portfolios and troubleshooting a few issues when the host computer is working hard to keep up with a lot of calculations and the client is asking for a lot of stuff. Finally have some idea how to handle bulk changing the interest rates in a portfolio. Import from Excel only works if excel is installed on the computer, so I might piggy-back a second system to read data onto the import routines. Took another step toward generating Metro2 files.
2017-10-06 Testing and packing up the application for a Beta update. Released Beta 3.0.29.
2017-10-04 Fixed an issue with amortization reports. Upgrade routine to convert the "version 0" file system to the new "version 1" files system. A whole bunch of checking the new system's file integrity. Testing the upgrade routine repeatedly to make sure the upgraded file works properly.
2017-10-03 Finished the refactoring of the template printing system, emailing and printing templates works well now, for statements and vouchers. Auto-attaching a copy of printed statements to each loan also works now.
2017-10-02 Added portfolio setting to keep a copy of printed templates in the portfolio. Added routines when printing/email templates to attach a PDF of the template to its loan. A lot of customer emails/calls today :) Work over that printing code and formalize the process and architecture.
2017-09-29 Tons of testing and debugging yesterday and this morning. Worked through all the biggest bugs and finally have the new file structure closing and opening correctly. I hope to have the code that reads the old file structure working properly in the next hour or two and migrate the default templates and reports to the new system. Then I'll be revising how passwords are set on portfolios - the users in the network config will have an extra option to allow them to open the file directly - allowing up to ten different passwords to open the portfolio file - but also allowing the user that opened the file to have limited permissions to the data.

I have a list of 13 items to round off the features in Moneylender 3. None of them are part of the calculation system. The loan balances seem to be really solid - and much more correct than Moneylender 2 (missed late fees, better loan closing numbers, etc.). The interest is accurate in both programs, but unless you're very specific in Moneylender 2, you'll waive late fees that you were entirely entitled to collect. This weekend I'm going to stabilize Moneyelender 3 after the massive restructuring of the file system and release a version of Moneylender 3 that should be just about 100% solid for daily use.

Testing the reindexing routines, structure modification routines, performance on super-large portfolios by attaching gigantic files to the loans.
2017-09-28 Actually testing the new code. Adding the revision to the password entry / login stage of opening a portfolio file. Added the validity test to see if the file began a compress routine and did not complete - orphaning some of the records in the file permanently.
2017-09-27 On Monday I started a massive restructuring in the file system's architecture. I've been working on that ever since. It enables better security for the data in the portfolio file, allows more than one person to have their own passwords to open a file - so if you forget your password, your business partner can get in and change your password for you. It also opens the door for me to store a password for your portfolio on my serever as a subscription service so you can log into your account on my website and unlock your portfolio if you ever lose your password. And it also allows the user who opens the file to have specific permissions to the file, too. Additionally, it makes both dictionary and brute-force attacks ineffective, even if someone had the portfolio on their own computer and had access to Moneylender's source code. Some of the larger businesses that run Moneylender have an employee hosting the portfolio and the employee really shouldn't have admin privileges to the data. This makes that possible now. Also, it formalizes a couple things that really needed to be specifically defined in the file structure. I'm hoping to be testing the new structure today and have the old structure auto-upgrading to the new one by tomorrow.
2017-09-25 Making a big push to get the last chunks of the program in place by the end of the month. There's a fairly short list of items left to do, maybe half a dozen medium/large tasks.
2017-09-22 Wrote a couple more pages for the Moneylender 3 documentation. Worked on "Primary" column for explicit sorting on reports.
2017-09-20 Any custom values that are present, but not listed in the portfolios custom fields list, are visible when editing a record - prevents data from getting orphaned if the custom field label is changed. Allow deleting reports from report manager. Created a New Loans report. Fixed a couple bugs with custom data. Created a Cash Flow report. Fixed a problem with the balance refresh routine not actually saving the loans after updating the balances.
2017-09-19 Roughed in a bunch of Metro2 classes yesterday in preparation for enabling reporting to the credit bureaus in Moneylender 3. Added custom values to Lender and Payment records. Read through some of the documents from Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac to see what kind of out-of-the-box support for those loan programs would be possible.
2017-09-15 Fixed a bug when closing an unsatisfied loan and charging off the balance that the recalculation wouldn't reflect the charge-off until manually recalculated later. Got custom fields working for loan records. Put a few pages into the program's documentation.
2017-09-14 Lots has been worked on in the last two weeks. Default templates are shaping up. Reporting now allows setting up report filters. Tons of bug fixes, cleanup and improvement of all sorts of places in the software. Betting handling for missing borrowers and lenders. Prevent deleting lender if there are loans connected to it. Allow payments to be marked returned, and a new NSF fee to be added when that happens. Tons of testing. Released v3.0.28 beta.
2017-09-01 Reworking the template printing system to allow multiple templates on a page, and multipage templates to print on paper the same way. When creating a template, setting portrait or landscape will cause that option to be automatically selected when printing the template. Printing multiple lemplates to a single page works now (like printing labels, for example).
2017-08-31 Added a routine to copy the default reports from the same source that has the default templates.
2017-08-30 Payments that are suspended to a future due date on amortized loans that are being closed are credited toward the outstanding principal balance at closing. Stopped closed loans from having their balances refreshed when the portfolio is first opened. The "Calculated Through" date on closed loans now accurately reflects that the loan is calculated up to the close date instead of two months before the actual calculation end as is the behavior for open loans. Dealt with many subtle glitches in the loan closing and re-opening processes until my loans are opening and closing multiple times and always zeroing out nicely.
2017-08-29 Added ability to import statement and report templates from other portfolios and to re-import the default statements and reports.
2017-08-16 Released 3.0.26 with support for almost all loan template tags, along with other random fixes and improvements.
2017-08-11 In the last couple weeks I've been testing many customers' portfolios in Moneylender 3, importing from version 2, resolving discrepancies, fixing issues with edge cases and corner cases. Lots of work across the whole program. Released beta version 3.0.25, a major step toward being production ready. Only a few items are left to code into the program - custom fields, Metro2 reports, and some of the statement types need to be finished. The rest is debugging, documenting, and fleshing out the default statements and reports that ship with the program. It's really getting quite close to being production ready.
2017-07-26 A whole lot of testing with people's real world loans. Fixing bugs in the network system. When any user updates a loan, that loan refreshes for all connected users automatically.
2017-07-14 Tested closing in the release version of the program. Published beta version 3.0.24.
2017-07-13 Refined the options at closing for handling escrow and balance adjustments. Extensive testing of various scenarios: escrow account is short; escrow has a surplus; escrow surplus is absorbed into the loan balance; balance overpaid - issue refund to borrower; balance overpaid - increase interest proportionally; balance already comes out perfectly to zero; balance underpaid slightly- decrease the final interest; balance underpaid a lot - charge off principal. The closing wizard only presents the options that are valid for the selected loan, making it very easy to see what's happening at closing. The numbers exactly match the figures generated by the payoff calculator, too. Also made several fixes and tweaks to components on the loan calculator. Fixed the value for the loan's overall balance showing a figure taken from too far in the future. The accounting mechanisms of the program are really coming together. I still need to work on payoff penalties and make sure the handling works for all the different types of loans that Moneylender supports.
2017-07-12 Lots of testing and debugging. Adding routines to the calculator components to zero the balances for due amounts and to stop calculations. Refinement of the order that modules are run in the calculation engine. The calculator is really starting to shape up well. All the account balances zero out properly, with the actual money accounts being zeroed out in an accountable and traceable way.
2017-07-11 Much of the closing wizard is actually operational, and the code to record the necessary adjustments and disbursals is written. Testing continues.
2017-07-10 Worked on the Balance Shortage page of the closing wizard. Started testing the date and balance shortage pages.
2017-07-07 Worked up the Escrow Surplus and Escrow Shortage pages of the closing wizard.
2017-07-06 Worked up the closing date page of the loan closing wizard.
2017-07-05 Tested v3.0.23 and released an update to the beta.
2017-07-03 Testing. Editing an adjustment refreshes the adjustment list properly. Created pages and windows for closing a loan.
2017-06-30 The details panel on the right of the main window will remember its width between sessions now.
2017-06-29 Clicking a column header will sort the list of loans. If already sorted on that column, the sort order is reversed. Changed some of the default dates in the new amortized loan to be today instead of the year 1.
2017-06-28 Worked over the list of loans extensively. Column resizing works well now. Tested the release version of the program and fixed several bugs. Font size in the Moneylender settings is working again. Got the ledgers in the details panel populating (albeit you have to switch the selected ledger first). Searching works, as does showing and hiding closed loans. Can delete multiple loans in a single operation.
2017-06-26 Fixed a crash on the main window when a loan did not have a valid lender set. Created the Precomputed Loan calculation engine. Worked over the settings on the informal loan structure. Fixed some more crashes on the main window and the column settings.
2017-06-22 A bunch of work yesterday and today redesigning the list of loans. A customer reported a crash when creating loans, so I got the list of loans to a point where it functions, but it's ugly. The crash should be fixed and version 3.0.21 is out for people to download.
2017-06-20 Moved the program settings to a new class that saves to a file in the C:\Program Data folder; this allows the installer to run without wiping out the program settings like auto-backup, default folder, columns, SMTP settings, etc. Continued working over the
2017-06-19 Worked over the default regular statement template that comes with Moneylender 3 a little bit. Added some escrow related tags. Started roughing in the new UI for the list of loans.
2017-06-15 Implemented the math for many of the statement template tags that weren't supported in Moneylender 3 yet.
2017-06-14 Couple changes to Moneylender 3 template tags. Revamped the home page of this site, and the colors/theming.
2017-06-13 Released Beta version 3.0.20 with fixes for a couple issues reported by a customer when importing their Moneylender 2 portfolio.
2017-06-12 Released Beta version 3.0.19. Template design system is much improved.
2017-06-08 and 09 Finished item reordering by drag/drop on the template designer. Tested the production template mechanism thoroughly for crashes.
2017-06-07 Work through the template designer to give better visual feedback and add a bunch of handlers for things like pressing "Escape" will cancel a move or resize in progress, switch modes to create template objects shows you you're in a mode. Fixed a bug in the snapping routine. Changed the appearance of the sort order list a lot. Fixed a bug with selecting an item from the tag list and saving wouldn't save the selected tag correctly. Made the sort order list resizable. Partially implemented zooming in and out in the designer.
2017-06-05 Work over the print templates dialog to make it clearer what is being emailed, what was emailed, and what will be printed. Test the changes, and printing and emailing statements.
2017-06-01 Finished up network code and started testing. Ironing out various bugs. It's actually working pretty decently at the moment. Adding code to auto-connect to network portfolios if that was the last portfolio open. Released Beta 3.0.18.
2017-05-31 Still working on the network routines.
2017-05-30 Implemented most of the remaining network portfolio access routines.
2017-05-29 Roughed in a mechanism to convert index-optimized record requests to byte arrays and implemented it on both file and network portfolio types. Some of the coolest code I've written in a while. Been designing it in my head for at least two years. Seeing it in real life is pretty epic. Cuts network bandwidth by anywhere from 90% to 99.9%. Should make network portfolio access feel a lot more like direct file access from the user's perspective.
2017-05-25 Created a "Suspense Account" mechanism that applies to amortized loans (without daily interest). When a payment arrives before it is due, the payment is held until the due date and then applied to the loan. Released Beta 3.0.12.
2017-05-24 Fixed balances to reflect the numbers corresponding with the proper dates.
2017-05-23 Added some routines to check if the portfolio being opened is a v2 portfolio, and to automatically create a new v3 portfolio to import the data into. Released Beta v3.0.11. Working on multi-user code. A good chunk of the communication framework between client and host is done. Working to add an index-optimization layer to the network protocol and complete the "data connector" routines. Reviewed loans with a couple customers and made some quick edits to get correct dates to show up.
2017-05-22 Fixed a bug in the borrower and lender wizards that would crash the program when copying the addresses. Release Beta2 with more Escrow capabilities and several minor bug fixes and improvements.
2017-05-18 Extensive work on the Escrow system this week. RESPA escrow adjustments - normal charge, charge with deposit, charge with deposit prorated. "Renewing" annual disbursements works nicely. Reviewed all the controls on the escrow windows. Added "Copy" to the template manager to make copies of templates within a portfolio.
2017-05-15 Find and fix the cause of the post-obfuscation crash whenever a form that has a schedule picker is loaded. Create a few default templates to ship with the Beta based on the ones that come with version 2. Servicing Menu is now the list of templates marked to show on the menu. Add a bunch of pages to the user's guide. Set up a file with the default templates and copy it to the target computer during installation. Add a routine to copy the default templates into new portfolios that are created. Set the program up as a Beta. Make a file association with the .mlp3 extension. Test the installer. Deploy to the web. Update the website.
2017-05-12 Testing in the obfuscated version of the program to clear out any errors related to problems in the obfuscator in preparation for a Beta release on Monday.
2017-05-08 through 2017-05-11 Participated in NoteVision 2017. Presented version 3 changes and new capabilities. A really amazing opportunity. Everyone who uses Moneylender is going to benefit significantly from what I picked up at that conference.
2017-05-05 Added borrowers to the settings tab, and coded the routines for creating, editing, switching primary. Created a window for editing lender connections to loans. Tested the obfuscation process to see if there would be any trouble prepping the application for presentation at NoteVision 2017. Added code to all adding, editing, deleting and switching primary for the lenders on a loan. Tested along with testing a couple other parts of the program.
2017-05-04 Added routines to test for irregular period at the beginning of scheduled interest loans and add or substitute daily interest accordingly. Revise the Payment details report code since the last round of changes to the reporting system. Testing and reviewing various sample loans for potential problems. Adding code to view and manage the borrowers and lenders associated with a loan.
2017-05-03 Allow dropping files onto the attachments panel to attach them to the loan. Testing and debugging the note editing. Found a dirty bug where text stored in Unicode format with the max number of characters would get abandoned. Most text is ASCII, so this hadn't come up yet. That took a while to figure out! Work over the import template from MLP2 process since the last round of template code changes. Fix the rounded rectangles on PDFs from templates. Found bug where late fees aren't getting picked up if partial calculation starts at some points between cycles, fixed it. Revised all routines in the loan details panel that edit records so the recalculation date is the lesser of the original date of the edited record or the revised date.
2017-05-02 Test the notes and attachments panels. Include late fee settings in the MLP2 import process. Adding and exporting attachments works. Converting stored statement history from MLP2 to PDF attachments in MLP3 is working. Create a quicknote edit page. Add "pop-up reminder" field to record. Notes coming from MLP2 are set with reminders on if they have a future date.
2017-05-01 Update PDFSharp references for generating PDFs from templates. Migrate Moneylender 2's stored template tag settings decompression routines. Add routines to save templates to PDF attachments. Add file attachment record type and code to read/write an arbitrary amount of binary data for the attachment. Test the import from v2 routine for copying in Notes and attaching pdfs for historic templates. Add tabs to the Loan Details Panel for notes and attachments. Add code for managing attachments.
2017-04-28 Added quicknote records to Moneylender 3's file structure. Added import routine to pull notes from Moneylender 2 into Moneylender 3. Started adding routine to convert saved statements to PDF attachments in MLP3.
2017-04-27 Importing payoff penalty settings from MLP2 is written now. Custom fields import from MLP2 is written. Importing third party fees as either fees or escrow settings per user configuration is written (making a couple assumptions about how users have entered their escrow charges in Moneylender 2).
2017-04-26 Testing the Portfolio Settings dialog's custom fields management. Testing the revised import routines. A lot of testing and debugging on the custom field interface on the portfolio settings dialog, and it's working and saving the custom settings nicely. Finished out some of the routines that import from Moneylender 2 that needed to be completed.
2017-04-25 Added routines to the portfolio structure to simplify reading and writing custom values. Added option to set the height of the textbox to create when adding controls for setting custom values on records. Started binding the portfolio settings dialog to the custom settings on the viewmodel. Lots of testing and debugging on a new routine to compress/reindex a portfolio file. Shaves about 40% of the time off the compress and reindex processes. The processes run when the file structure changes or the portfolio isn't properly closed. It happens to me all the time during debugging, and it'll happen occasionally during the normal use of Moneylender 3, and will happen occasionally when updates come out that change the structure of the file. Works pretty nicely now. :)
2017-04-24 Revised the "import from MLP2" routine to supply all upgradeable data for the loan records. Added structure for housing custom information in association with any type of record. Added the custom field lists to the Portfolio Settings object. Added "viewmodel" code for managing the custom fields. Started adding in the UI components to manage the custom fields in the portfolio.
2017-04-21 Rewrite the file structure to separate the records in the database from the assigned record type ids. Rewrite the record upgrade routine to automatically assign a new id to new templates. Rewrite the file maintenance process to upgrade templates in-place and manage indexes simultaneously. All these edits will cut the file management time when opening portfolios after a program update by 80% to 99%.
2017-04-20 Did some work with printing checks for principal disbursals. Created a print button for use around the application. Debugging in various loan calculations.
2017-04-19 Added routine to generate CSV files from reports. Tweaked the auto-selection behavior on large textboxes. Clean up on the edit Loan Dialog and the Interest setting dialog. Testing creating amortized loan with new wizard. Debugging scheduled interest on amortized loans. Started laying the groundwork for calculating the irregular interest at the beginning of a loan with interest on the payment schedule - ADB (Avg Daily Bal), Daily Interest, and interest on its own schedule don't have this requirement.
2017-04-18 Built the first three steps of the new Amortized Loan Wizard. Started testing and debugging the routines on those pages.
2017-04-17 Completed coding and testing of the template designer snapping. Printing using newer WPF is drawing pages. Disabled Print and Copy buttons on the preview window. Successfully test printing a payoff quote template.
2017-04-14 Continue revision of the templating system. Move all the measurements to density-pixels, which conversions to Inches or Millimeters where displayed to the user. Properly initialize the tag list when embedding tags into textboxes. Migrate printing to WPF FixedDocument rendering from GDI+ graphics drawing. Roughed in the template designer snapping code.
2017-04-13 Revise the templating system in conjunction with the payoff quotes. Clean up various parts of the user interface.
2017-04-12 When a portfolio is opened, loans that don't require a balance calculation will run a simpler refresh routine that updates the values that could have changed without the user adding any records to the loan. Added "CurrentDueDate" to loan record to compliment the "PaidThrough" and "NextPaymentDue" values. Improved the system status feedback when a portfolio is undergoing a record format upgrade (usually takes a while if there are lots of loans - knowing it's working and how long it'll take is reassuring). Prevent clicking on New or Open portfolio while a portfolio being opened is performing file maintenance.
2017-04-07 Added tags for Payoff values to the template system along with a Payoff Quote template type. Created a placeholder payoff quote. When a payoff is generated in the payoff calculator, the user can forward that payoff to the template system to send/print the payoff quote to the borrower. Print template system selects the first template by default.
2017-04-06 When closing, the window closes immediately and the portfolio is closed asynchronously so the user does not think the program did not close when the X is clicked. Payoff Calculator can calculate payoff quotes.
