I have Moneydance 2010 - registered. I downloaded MD 2011 and installed it. I am unable to register with the 2010 registration code. No information on how to register the upgrade.
The user guide is still the 2010 version - no reference to 2011. Looks like there's still work to do. I'll contact MD and see what happens.
I'm curious as to why TidBits hasn't written about iBank. There's an ad for it on your site as I type this, but a search turns up nothing.

Time, mostly, and the fact that writing about financial management software can be pretty involved. (And none of us are accountants.) But don't worry, we're looking into Quicken alternatives since things change in Lion.
