Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce release 0.46 of Task Coach. New in this release:

Bugs fixed:

     * In the effort views, the status bar would show information about 
tasks, not about effort.
     * Entering a negative effort duration while using a non-english 
language would crash Task Coach.
     * Having a two letter language string (e.g. 'en') in the 
TaskCoach.ini file would cause an error in the preferences dialog.

Features added:

     * Double-clicking the system tray icon when Task Coach is not 
minimized will raise the Task Coach window.
     * Added Spanish translation thanks to Juan José.

Feature changed:

     * Keyboard shortcut for deleting a task is now 'Delete' instead of 
'Ctrl-D' and 'Ctrl-Enter' marks the selected task(s) completed.

Implementation changes:

     * Task ids are now persistent, i.e. they are saved to and loaded 
from the Task Coach (XML) file. This will make it easier, in the future, 
to keep tasks synchronized with external sources, e.g. Outlook.
     * Task Coach now keeps track of the last modification time of 
tasks. These times are saved to and loaded from the Task Coach (XML) 
file. This change is also in preparation of synchronization functionality.

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.

Cheers, Frank
