I'm pleased to announce release 0.64.0 of Task Coach. This release offers the following:
Bugs fixed: * Ubuntu users had to manually install the wxaddons package. This package is now included in the Task Coach distribution. * Don't hide the main window when it's iconized by default because on Linux with some window managers the main window receives minimize events in other situations as well, most notably when changing virtual desktops. So, to reduce the chances of confusing new users this option is off by default.
Features added: * Added Breton translation thanks to Ronan Le Déroff * Show a tooltip with a task's description when the mouse is hovering over a task. Patch provided by Jerome Laheurte. * Allow for dragging emails from Thunderbird and Outlook to the attachment pane of tasks to create email attachments. Opening an attached email will open it in the user's default mail program. Patch provided by Jerome Laheurte.
In addition, while the previous release was *incorrectly* being marked as infected with a trojan horse by AVG Anti-virus, I'm glad to be able to report that Softpedia awarded Task Coach 0.64.0 their "100% CLEAN award", see http://www.softpedia.com/progClean/Task-Coach-Clean-29276.html
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.
