I'm pleased to announce release 0.52 of Task Coach. New in this release:
Bugs fixed: * For completed tasks, the number of days left for a task is now the number of days between the completion date and the due date. This prevents that the number of days left of completed tasks keeps decreasing, i.e. becoming more negative. For uncompleted tasks, the number of days left is still the number of days between today and the due date, of course. Patch provided by Maciej Malycha. * Put taskocachlib package first on the Python search path to prevent name conflict with the config module on Gentoo Linux. * Mention blue icon in the help on task colors. * Don't allow empty categories.
Features added: * Tasks can be dragged and dropped. * Tasks can have an hourly fee and/or a fixed fee. Revenue is calculated based on effort spent. * First tiny steps towards a user manual, see 'Help' -> 'Help contents'. * Whether the main window hides itself when iconized is now adjustable behavior. See 'Edit' -> 'Preferences'.
Feature changed: * Backups are created just before saving, instead of when loading a .tsk file. Patch provided by Maciej Malycha.
Feature removed: * Files in the old comma-separated format can no longer be read by Task Coach.
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:
A binary installer is available for Windows XP, in addition to the source distribution.
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.
