Hi all,

I am pleased to announce release 0.22 of Task Coach. New in this release:

Bugs fixed:
- In the effort summary view, effort spent on a task in the same month
   or week but in different years would erroneously be added.
   E.g. effort in January 2004 and January 2006 would be added.
- The mechanism to prevent effort periods with a negative duration (i.e.
   a start time later than the stop time) in the effort editor was
   invoked on each key stroke which caused inconvenient behaviour. Fixed
   it by only invoking it when the user leaves the text or combo box.

Features added:
- Added possibility to start tracking effort for a task, with start time
   equal to the end time of the previous effort period. This is for
   example convenient if you stop working on a task and then spend
   some time deciding on what to do next. This is the 'Start tracking
   from last stop time' menu item in the 'Effort' menu.
- (Re)Added the unittests to the source distribution. See INSTALL.txt.
- Export to XML. Currently limited to tasks, effort is not exported yet.

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 uses
wxPython. You can download Task Coach from:


A binary installer is available for Windows XP, in addition to the
source distribution.

Thanks, Frank
