I'm pleased to announce release 0.46 of Task Coach. New in this release:
* 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.
* 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.
* Keyboard shortcut for deleting a task is now 'Delete' instead of
'Ctrl-D' and 'Ctrl-Enter' marks the selected task(s) completed.
* 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.

up your task file regularly, and especially when upgrading to a new release.
