We're happy to announce release 0.71.5 of Task Coach. This release adds one usability enhancement and a few bug fixes.
* Don't wake up every second just to keep track of reminders and midnight. * Hide main window after showing reminder dialog when it was hidden before. * When marking a recurring task completed, recur its reminder too, if any. * Refresh task status at midnight. * Fix tab traversal in the effort editor on Linux.
* When double clicking an item in a viewer, open the editor on the right page, depending on the column clicked. For example, when clicking on the due date column in a task viewer, Task Coach will open the task editor with the dates page raised. Patch provided by Carl Zmola.
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/Vista, Mac OS X, 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.
Cheers, Task Coach developers
