Hi all,
Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce release 0.42 of Task Coach. New in this release:

Bugs fixed:
* Double clicking a task with children in the tree view would open the 
edit dialog and expand or collapse the task as well. Fixed to not 
collapse or expand the task when double clicking it.
* Adding a subtask to a collapsed parent task now automatically expands 
the parent task.
* Changing the description of a task or effort record wouldn't mark the 
task file as changed.
* Time spent is now updated every second.
* Don't try to make a backup when loading the file fails. Reported by 
Scott Schroeder.
* (Windows installer only) Association between .tsk files and Task Coach 
was broken.

Feature changed:
* The start date of a task can now be left unset, creating a task that 
is permanently inactive. This can be useful for activities that you 
would normally not want to plan, but have to keep a time record for, 
e.g. sickness.

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
