I'm pleased to announce release 0.65.0 of Task Coach. This release adds the ability to record notes, improves the flexibility of the different views, and fixes several bugs.
* Made subject column resizable. * Enable export of data containing non-ASCII characters to CSV. * Don't activate another viewer when another application is minimized (Windows only). * Outlook 2003 email messages added as attachment couldn't be opened from Task Coach. * German translation had wrong menu accelerators. * Apply undo/redo/cut/copy/paste actions to text if a text control is visible and has focus (Mac OSX only) * Added a copy of the ElementTree package to the Task Coach source code, so the source code distribution of Task Coach works with Python 2.4, without needing to install ElementTree.
* Notes. Notes have a subject and an optional description. Notes can be hierarchical, i.e. notes may contain subnotes. Notes can be sorted and searched (filtered), printed, and exported. This feature can be turned on or off via the preferences dialog. * Categories can be searched (filtered) using the search control on the toolbar. * Category sorting can be changed: ascending or descending, case sensitive or case insensitive. * Categories can have a description. * Each viewer/tab has its own settings for sort order and visible columns. Viewers can be renamed. This makes it possible to e.g. create a 'Todo today'. * The search control on the toolbar can (optionally) include subitems in the search result. This makes it easy to show one task and its subtasks in a task viewer or show effort for one task and its subtasks in an effort viewer. * Added a setting to start Task Coach iconized either always, never, or only when Task Coach was iconized when last quitted. * Added a setting to turn off spell checking (Mac OSX only). * Added (incomplete) translations in Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, Latvian and Polish. See http://www.taskcoach.org/i18n.html for more information about translations and on how you can help.
What is Task Coach?
Task Coach is a simple task manager that allows for hierarchical tasks, i.e. tasks in tasks. Task Coach is open source (GPL) and is developed using Python and wxPython. You can download Task Coach from:
In addition to the source distribution, packaged distributions are available for Windows XP, Mac OSX, and Linux (Debian and RPM format).
Note that Task Coach is alpha software, meaning that it is wise to back up your task file regularly, and especially when upgrading to a new release.
