Whats New in QuickBooks 2013?

If you are following Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or QuickBooks related blogs you probably saw a lot of information coming out yesterday regarding the latest release of QuickBooks which was made available to the Accountant community yesterday.  As there is a lot of detailed information out there I am just going to provide you with a listing of various articles and upcoming online seminars regarding new features in QuickBooks 2013.  Please note that as this is the first release of the new version many of these articles suggest you not upgrade right away as there are some bugs that need to addressed by Intuit.
