Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce release 0.57 of Task Coach. New in this release:

Bugs fixed:

* When adding a new effort to a task, take into account that the user 
may have changed the task that the effort belongs to in the effort 
editor dialog (using the dropdown combobox). Because Task Coach didn't 
do that, the effort would be added twice if the user changed the task of 
the new effort record.
* A file that was saved with an active effort couldn't be loaded again. 
Task Coach would complain that the file was invalid.
* Added different sizes of the Task Coach icon. This prevents scaling up 
the 16x16 version to 32x32 on Windows or to even 128x128 on the Mac.

Feature added:

* Task Coach is now also available as disk image (.dmg) for Mac OSX 
(tested on OSX 10.4).

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 and a disk image is 
available for Mac OSX, 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
